lyrics

You've got your liberty and you've got everything we need, endless alleys of products to choose from
But is this the kind of freedom you would stand up and sing songs about passionately when you were young

Don't count the cars, don't count the cars
Count the people on the bus
Don't count the cops, don't count the cops
Count the smiles
And you'll know how rich we are

The times treated you well and your new house in the hills has the same view you once were opposing
You keep on adding up and post-purchase rationalize so you don't risk the values you've gained

And I really can't tell if you sold out
All I know is you bought in
You stay distracted by the decoys
Ready to bite the hook again

You tried to change the world but didn't make it
So you changed yourself instead
Should you ever wonder where that got us
Then count the smiles
And you'll know how rich we are
