lyrics

here in the marketplace
it's life beyond the pale
witness all of man's darkest traits
they're all for sale
make a stack, but break your back
because that was the goal
they selling anything that makes you happy
the cost is just your soul

but baby
you ain't gotta buy it
you can take it from me

you came to stake your claim
but it takes a lot to stay
and you say that you hate the game
but you got to play
and now you're in it, win it
pin it down and take a slice
it's a club, if you want admission
you're bound to pay the price

but baby
you ain't gotta buy it
you can take it from me
you ain't gotta buy it
you can get it for free


CHORUS:
cause you don't know
you don't know
you don't know what you got
this world is cold
but it's yours to hold
whether you know it or not

don't give in, you can have
anything that you choose
you can win, but do the math
somebody has to lose
it's a deal you can't refuse

i bet you tell yourself
that you won't succumb to greed
but everybody here is selling wealth
like it's what you need
gotta score, and vie for more
we must obey the biz
and keep hearing that same old story
it's just the way it is

but baby
you ain't gotta buy it
you can take it from me
you ain't gotta buy it
you can get it for free

CHORUS:
cause you don't know
you don't know
you don't know what you got
this world is cold
but it's yours to hold
whether you know it or not
don't play along
you're way too strong
you don't know what you got
it's your spot to hold
you got control
whether you know it or not
