Capitalism Killed Me

Fri 26th Oct 2018










Capitalism killed me

I’m not afraid to say

Capitalism killed me

It screamed and made me pay

Capitalism killed me

It took away my voice

Capitalism killed me

There was no other choice

Capitalism killed me

It made me bleed and bleed

Each cut cut deeper,

My body tired and weak

Capitalism killed me

It made my heart grow numb

Capitalism killed me

It tore out my aching lungs

Capitalism killed me

It brainwashed the young

Capitalism killed me

It held a loaded gun

Capitalism killed me

It split my head in two

Capitalism killed me

There was nothing I could do

I fought, I pushed, I begged, I cried

But then it just increased its stride

The hands it took so long to hold, couldn’t stay

Their souls were sold

Capitalism killed me

I can’t, and won’t deny

That Capitalism killed me

It laughed

It let me die
