I am the world and I haven't a care but the change in my pocket.
I claim to care as a society or a company but if you haven't a dime then to us you haven't worth.
I am control running your life.
Work and work for that's how you gain worth.
I won't let it be easy for your income won't be enough.
I'll mock you with success and point out how you are a failure.
I am cthe corporation that builds your world.
I say, "We need you." and "This is to better your life"
When I have your trust I convince you that you need us.
We give you work, we give you money, all we ask in return is cash and oil.
The world isn't as important as us for without us you couldn't get work.
Without work you can't make money.
Without money you'll end up on the streets and disappear in the cracks of society. 
I am the media and I claim to be healthy.
I keep you informed when you give me your money. 
But what you don't know the lies I spit out and how I poison your mind. 
I care not for global warming or the oil we drill.
Just throw me a dollar and I'll make you forget. 
You say people starving and I'll ask where.
Just laugh at my comedies or indulge in some horror.
You need a break from all the drama anyways.
But if you want the news then let me blame you, you are responible for the pain in this world.
Give me more money and I'll fix it all.
Do you see the catch? You're caught in my net. 
There's nothing more important than money and don't you forget it. 

This is the world we've become a part of so please don't forget the people you pass are worth more than green paper.
