Legalized Theft

This song is by D.O.A. and appears on the album 13 Flavours Of Doom (1993).

Well it's a system of greed
Where priorities are askew
It seems the people who do real work have holes in their shoes
Complete a touchdown pass and you'll get all the press
The distribution of wealth is a joke and the joke is on you
Chorus: legalized theft - it's like a money printing press
Legalized theft - let the wrong rule the rest
To make your mark, you've got to cut your costs
And if you look away now, your spinoffs could get lost
Create a toxic brew and new products too
Filters, sunscreens and hordes of medicine too
Chorus: legalized theft - it's like a money printing press
Legalized theft - so the wrong can rule the rest
But the biggest crooks of all sit elected on top
Makin' laws to help their friends while they pay off the cops
Then they tell all the natives they got no rights here
Now they're fucking with the goddamn working man's beer
Chorus: legalized theft - it's like a money printing press
Legalized theft - and for us there ain't much left
Legalized theft - you better take the crumbs that's left
Legalized theft - so the wrong can rule the rest
