Someone's always playing corporation games

They call us irresponsible, write us off the page

It's just another Sunday, 
In a tired old street
Police have got the chokehold, 
And we just lost the beat! 

Verse
Who counts the money underneath the bar
Who rides the wrecking ball into our guitars
Don't tell us you need us, 'cos we're just simple fools
Looking for America, coming through your schools 

w/bridge
(Hey everybody out there
It's a hundred degrees and you're all looking fine!)
Don't you remember, we built this
(This is your favorite radio station, The city by the bay, the city that never sleeps)
