lyrics

Who says that a piece of pa per, gets me what I want?

Who says that a barbed wire fence, tells me what I’m not?

Who says that the seen, heard, spoken is everything there is?


It aint me
It aint you


Who says that some are born to riches, others to rags?

Who says that this profit motive aint just a load of gas?

Who says that we can’t grow food for everyone to eat?


It aint me
It aint you


Who says what is one and hundred, who says what is none?

Who says that a circle aint just a square on the run?

Who says that all that’s added isn’t just subtracted?

It aint me
It aint you


Is it an eye in the sky?
Is it a lullaby?
Is it an open field?
Is it a stock exchange?
Is it an ancient book?

It aint me
