the rigged economy waltz

asset / liability
crisis / opportunity
that’s the way the money goes
the natural order I propose
cycling up, cycling down
take your horse
on the merry-go-round
cry of course
when the ride defaults
in the rigged economy waltz

who knows what they’re really worth
productivity and growth
we need more prosperity
you need more austerity
we’re born to ride, you’re born to crank
the machinery
of our corporate banks
all nice n’clean
for the family vaults
the rigged economy waltz

the more you got the less you sweat
credit easier to get
principal plus interest
nice collateral, we’re impressed
deleveraging, c’est la vie
workers dumped
what’s that to me
it’s growth and slumps
read the reports
in the rigged economy waltz
