Wash in tons faces of note
Devised scheme that is a sure thing to bank on
To cap it all we have to take in to account
In debt we share en masse a common bond
An acceptance of saying, "No coin on me" pounds in
Notes faces of value insure we always need dough to rise
They always are a head steering with non-blinking eyes
A powerful hypnotic effect...
A spell spent on counters products, tantalizingly rich
We pay for the con enemies use to trick
Now a bill in years never able to be paid
Who is really the teller of this well torn tale
If you want you can have credit
Prey to a pay rise because low pay no longer rise up
After falling foul to the re-con army
Living on a tab, let it get out of control
Now stop, check, shrink back, contract
A shuddering reality
You are only a stub born out of cents
