Who are you?
common dust,
winds and calms,
can't you hear that they came to us?

oh my god,
giving up,
washed out and folded
and goal is to know where we are

when the season ends
and the winter comes
breaking backs to them
is all we really are
to the common truth
or the common use
when the pitch comes in
then the warning comes

this is a business
come on make a difference
show us your instant
money making engine
we have the money
and the people's trust
we don't really need you
but you need us
this is a business
this is the only way of life
this is a business
this is the only way of life

who are you?
Scared to trust?
Throwing bones
at the stones, what you're mad about?

no idea,
indubious,
going in for the kill
when you do think of us

when the season ends
and the winter comes
make elastic bands
all really long
to the common truth
or the common use
when the pitch comes in
then the warning comes

this is a business
come on make a difference
show us your instant
money making engine
get up and believe
you got to perceive you
takes someone to lead
you got to agree too
this is a business
this is the only way of life
this is a business
this is the only way of life

this is a business
come on make a difference
show us your instant
money making engine
we have the money
and the people's trust
we don't really need you
but you need us
this is a business
this is the only way of life
this is a business
this is the only way of life
