lyrics

We live in a rich land, we know how to reap its fruits

but you can’t pick the harvest without healthy roots

King Cash rules all, well that's just what they say

we can create communism today



Well the party bureaucrats aren't too sure 'bout all of that

they'll have to take power, arrange their pawns on a map

but when they pick up that crown, they won't be puttin’ back down

but the people don't need politicians around



(Chorus) We can search high and low, we can trace the stars above

we can dive in the whiskey and fall into love

we can ponder the questions when the answer's quite clear

Heaven is livin' right here



I work in a store for a big company

and I eat quite well 'cause what we're sharing is free

and what the bosses don't know won't hurt them anywhere

except for their wallets and we don't frankly care



there's a managing class that can't manage worth shit

the point of it’s profit an that's just what they get

we give them our lives and they throw us away

it’s time to create communism today



(Repeat Chorus)



All we need to realize is the world's already ours



Well what will we leave to our beloved little ones

a world full of cancer, corruption, and guns?

There's a new way inside us just begging to be born

Siblings are you ready to weather the storm



(Chorus) We can search high and low, we can trace the stars above

we can dive in the whiskey and fall into love

we can ponder the questions when the answer's quite clear

Heaven is livin' right here
