Song lyrics that I wrote a while ago:

One criminal pays the bail
While another stays in jail
To be rich is to have the law waived
To be poor is to be enslaved
Bound by money -- None of us is free

What world is this we live in
Where wealth and happiness are synonymous
Where being famous beats being anonymous
Where robbery alongside rape is a sin
Bound by money -- None of us is free

Century after century
The same old philosophy

Every government disintegrates to oligarchy
The masses are controlled by a rich minority
Bound by money -- None of us is free
