Lyrics

I took a tour
Of your corporate city today
It was beautiful
In every way
But when you take off her clothes
And you look her in the eye
She ain't so pretty anymore

And on my tour
Of your corporate city there
I saw all the blank stares and lies and despair
It was everywhere
Do you look real nice
Are you putting on a show
In your Corporate City today

Your coporate city
Is gonna take your soul
It's a pity
You don't even know
Would you be happy
If you were a little less poor
A little less poor

You city's got lots of nice stuff for sale
A nice box for you
And a hammer and a nail
But when you try to get out
Try something new
Your're trapped in debt and solitude

Now Jack says don't take this place so seriously
Or else you'll go insane you'll lose your brain mercilessly
But when you look him in the eye
Right down to his soul
You see he's already gone

Your coporate city
Is gonna take your soul
It's a pity
You don't even know
Would you be happy
If you were a little less poor
A little less poor

Well me I started my own company today
I'm gonna try to make the world a better place
In one itty bitty way
And when you look me in my eye
Right down to my soul
You see it ain't so hard to be beautiful after all
