Popcorn Theory

from by Zero Cool



A song written about the price of popcorn in movie theaters..... No Really.


Genetically modified to want what we don’t need
We’ve slit modesty’s throat and we pay to watch her bleed
The self-mutilating hymn is on everybody’s tongue
Never mind the consequences we’ll just damn the nation’s young

The nations getting larger but intelligence the same
Never mind the price we pay to subsidize the game
Inflation is the word they use to make their bullshit prose
It doesn’t matter what they sell you need it
and will pay through the nose

It’s Greed

We all gather round while scruples circle the drain
It’s a little ironic to support them then complain
Apathy’s the hand that gives your tithe to their purse
Supply and demand really is the nation’s curse.

It’s Greed
The plight of the lesser man.
