vi subversa - what a life

Price of Grain

We all talk a lot about wanting to be free
Sitting in the last lap of luxury
While some are dying for a handful of rice
Who controls the market who fixes the price

THE PRICE OF GRAIN
AND THE PRICE OF BLOOD

I asked the well-dressed Eurofarmer
Why do some grow fat while others starve
He said “Can’t afford to send food Ethiopia
Be realistic – this ain’t Utopia”

They’re dumping potatoes and burning grain 
And pouring fresh milk down the drain 
While rich young things in brand new cars
Play fast and loose like superstars

THE PRICE OF GRAIN
AND THE PRICE OF BLOOD

And we in the west all know and care
And we all shed our crocodile tears
Playing games while others die
So we se we can keep our prices high

And everyone says “We’re not to blame”
Let’s all wash hands and play the game
Boom and slump, waste and glut
The currency is human blood

THE PRICE OF GRAIN
AND THE PRICE OF BLOOD 
THE PRICE OF BLOOD 
THE PRICE OF BLOOD
