Song Description

Everything is for sale these days including basic human rights such as healthcare. After going into debt because your healthcare is substandard or nonexistent, you lose the house because you've borrowed against it to pay the medical bills.

Story Behind the Song

The current economic situation and the huge gap between the wealthy and the impoverished always makes me wonder, "how much do you need?"

Lyrics

Well you can't pay no premium
Can't put nothing away
And you wake up each morning
Pray you'll make it through the day
'cause it's a long line
for a hospital room
and when it's too late, it's too late
nothing anyone can do

How much do you need
to satisfy your greed
Will you take all the little people?

Well they sell off your mortgage
Go and hike up your rates
And you can't pay your credit cards
all the fees for being late
Can't get no more money
There's a freeze on your raise
And when it's too late, it's too late
The boys upstairs just got paid

How much do you need
to satisfy your greed
Will you take all the little people?
