about

The song PROFIT originally appeared on my first record, Songs About Girls. I wrote the lyrics and Ian Herold the chords. Soon after the record came out, Ian and I went our separate ways.

That was also around the time we decided to give our songs a bit more energy so it seemed like a good time to rewrite it! Profit 2.0 is the new version with a whole new feel and updated lyrics.

lyrics

Profit 2.0 (Gladstone/Girio)

Here’s your job so do it
Don’t make a fuss or fight
Just keep on making money
And all will be alright

Here’s your food so eat it
Its made to keep on the shelf
Don’t worry how, or think of what
It might do to your health

Chorus
P-R-O-F-I-T that’s how they spell democracy
P-R-O-F-I-T that’s how they spell democracy

One party to the left
One party to the right
Doesn’t really matter
Cause neither one will fight

Profit motive is the system
It tells you what you can do
The reality tomorrow brings
Is up to me and you

Chorus

Now here’s the news that you should know
And nothing you should not
It feeds our web of lies and crap
To make sure you stay caught

Here’s your life’s ambition
So you can save the time
Of thinking for yourself and
Get back to making mine

Chorus X 2
