lyrics

Here comes industry
They're going to save humanity
More for you means more for me
Here comes industry

Here comes industry
Keep it domestic says Carnegie
Only buy steel from my mills
Here comes industry

Here comes industry
Thanks for the loan Mr. JP
Now the bank owns the land and the land owned me
Here comes industry

Here comes industry
They don't give a damn about you and me
We're just the cogs that turn their machines
Here comes industry

Here comes industry
Bought up another one Mr. John D
Our blood and toil for his bucket of oil
Here comes industry

Down with industry
It's time we formed a community
Fight with the knights for workers rights
Down with industry

Down with industry
We can't compete with their lobby
They've got the law in their jobs
Down with industry

Down with industry
Workers unite regardless of creed
A man's a man so get off your knees
Down with industry

Down with industry
Unite to fight the corporate greed
You don't need the right go ahead and strike
Down with industry

Down with industry
Strike and another man fills the need
You're not worth your salt or earth
Down with industry

Down with industry
It's timely formed a Labour Party
They're sitting rich we've got mouths to feed
Down with industry

Here comes industry
Let's build a railroad with the Chinese
Cast them aside like a wounded knee
Here comes industry

Here comes industry
Mr. Dole needs Hawaii
We won't stop till the Philippines
Here comes industry

Here comes industry
To war with France's at the Cubans free
Business disguised as democracy
Here comes industry

Here comes industry
It's an open door policy
Just force them to buy from me
Here comes industry

Here comes industry
Let's form an empire McKinley
Our goods aren't where they need to be
Here comes industry

Here comes industry
They're going to save humanity
More for you means more for me
Here comes industry
