Big Wedge (album version) - Lyrics

I found a new religion
Yesterday
I'd just cleared immigration
JFK
A priest got in a cadillac
The shoe shine boy sang gospel
As God and his accountants
Drove away
You'll see him coast to coast
On live TV
In a stadium rocked by Satan
Just the night before
The collection from the faithful
It is tax free it will pay for
His presidential campaign
And his yacht

And we all bow down
We bow down to the big wedge
And we'll buy ourselves
Some heaven here on earth
We sell our souls
We sell our souls for big wedge
Are we selling out
Tomorrow for today?

A surgeon checks your
Plastic on the phone
A casio concerto
Entertains you while you hold
Your credit rating's good
For a Madonna or a Bardot
A Dali or Picasso
For his wall

You're looking good
Your're looking good with big wedge
Are you holding back
Tomorrow for today?
They're driving in
They're driving in with big wedge
Are we selling out
Tomorrow for today?

You'll sell the ground
Beneath your feet
You'll sell your oil
You'll sell your trees
Your ideals and integrity
Your culture and your history
Your children into slavery
To labour in their factories
Your mother and your family
You'll sell the world eventually

The IMF and CIA
There's just no difference
They're all the same
It all depends on
What's your point of view

America, America
The big wedge
And they're buying
Your tomorrow out today
With Promises, the promises
Of big wedge
And they'll break them
Like your hearts another day
When you find out that
You've left it just too late
And you'll find that you're
The only one to blame
That you sold out
Your tomorrow
Yesterday
For big wedge
You sold out for my big wedge
For my big wedge
For my big wedge
