As Good As It Gets (Gene)

Be careful in life and you'll see The greedy live off you and me This is the code, we can break history But the greedy still fear you and me So get out the way People have to work Not wallow in the dirt People have to work I bet that this is as good as it gets, yes How can you ask for more? If you're paid, you're not poor This is as good as it gets, yes We've been bought, we've been sold But at least we're not old When red became blue, hope denied Our dreams swept away with the tide So get out the way People want to work Not fester in the dirt We all want to work I bet that this is as good as it gets, yes How can you ask for more? If you're paid, you're not poor This is as good as it gets, yes We've been bought, we've been sold But at least we're not old Can your heart take the cold?
