Citizen Fish — Invisible People lyrics

Invisible people with invisible hands/holding very obvious collection cans/
Anonymous people with anonymous jobs/hurry past for fear of being late for
The boss/both will say it's not the way I intended to be/knowing that the
Other guy has all he could need/the homeless have got all the time and all
Of it to share/the workers have got all the cash and none of it to spare/
Invisible people with invisible feet/taxi cab potential knowing every street/
Anonymous people with anonymous cars/rolling up the winddows as they drive on
Past/if these wree all your relatives then which one would you feed?/would the
Power you get from money dissappear if it was free?/isn't it therefore obvious
That in this society/there's poverty and hunger due to other people's greed/
Invisible people from invisible homes/lost the job their rent went up out on
Their own/anonymous people with anonymous lives/reliant on superiors to keep
Them alive/cos when it comes right down to it the structure is the same/
Control requires acceptance that you have to play the game/the power of money
Trickles down decreasing as it goes/and out there in the rain it would be used
On food and clothes/but social guilt the barrier to giving what is gained/to
Those who have less of it, cuts the last link in the chain/invisibility comes
From being constantly in view/ignorance is the passive stance of saying it
Can't be true/reality shapes itself around perceptions of the self/until we
Really need it we refuse to offer help/the state that creats homelessness
Thrives on this attitude/until we smash these limitations and take a wider
