Don't Die for their Money

about

As the pandemic pushed on, I started to hear people saying, "Don't let the cure be worse than the disease." Basically, people were saying it's okay to let the most vulnerable people in our society die of Covid-19 if it means that we save our economy.

This is wrong. It is wrong. They are wrong.

That is not the hill you want to die on... because it is the hill on which they will kill you. And for what? Some digital numbers...

lyrics

baby don't tell me they got to you
promised you the world and delivered the blues
who am I kidding? they got me too
you light the match
I'll hold the fuse

don't die for their money, you're better than that
tear down their temples, nothing burns like cash
the way you've been talking, sounds like truth
you light the match
I'll hold the fuse

rest easy baby, there's nothing left
we're long in the tooth, and short on our breath
I won't die for their money, but I'd die for you
you light the match
I'll hold the fuse

I won't die for their money, but I'd die for you
you light the match
I'll hold the fuse
