it's greed that keeps the workin' class
just barely hangin' on
you remember us, we're the ones that do all
the work you profit from

it's greed that ruins the water and the air
and takes the trees
that gives mother earth the fever
that could bring us to our knees

and it's greed that keeps the wars alive
there far across the sea
where we trade our sons and daughters
for some oil that we don't need

and it's greed that buys the government
and the laws made just for you
what once was for the people
is now just for a chosen few

we're not askin' for a free ride
we just want our fair share too
and if you haven't noticed
there are more of us than you

gonna occupy our own minds
gonna think for ourselves
you can't buy your way in here no more
sell your lies to someone else

gonna occupy our own hearts
till we wake up to the truth
gonna take a stand, gonna make a plan
I'll tell you what we're gonna do

we're gonna occupy these city streets
untill we make the change
this world will never be the same
what a time to be alive
it's time to occupy

well it finally had to happen
in that spring across the sea
that the world was changed forever
by some normal folks like me

who discovered we’re connected
like we’ve never been before
the power of that one-ness
is what opened up the door

you'll never seperate us now
we've finally found the key
there's no way you can keep us
from the truth that set us free

everything little thing you do to us
and everything you say
will be sent around the world
for everyone to see today

we're not askin' for a free ride
but we'll have our fair share too
cause if you haven't noticed
there are more of us than you

gonna occupy our own minds
gonna think for ourselves
you can't buy your way in here no more
sell your lies to someone else

gonna occupy our own hearts
till we wake up to the truth
gonna take a stand, gonna make a plan
i'll tell you what we're gonna do

gonna occupy these city streets
untill we make the change
this world will never be the same
what a time to be alive
it's time to occupy

"yeah, welcome to 2012
the age of greed is over"

there's nothin' wrong with bein' rich
that's how we all should be
this earth has way more than enough
of everything we need

this world will be a paradise
when we open up our eyes
when we learn to live together
when we learn to occupy

gonna occupy our own minds
gonna think for ourselves
you can't buy your way in here no more
sell your lies to someone else

gonna occupy our own hearts
till we wake up to the truth
gonna take a stand, gonna make a plan
i'll tell you what we're gonna do

we're gonna occupy these city streets
untill we make the change
this world will never be the same
what a time to be alive
it's time to occupy
