This song is written in memory of different victims of the same system - capitalism; Otto Vass, murdered by 4 Toronto Police officers, the homeless who die on our streets every year, the Palestinians and the new Intifada and Africans dieing from AIDS and prevented from accessing affordable medication.
Four to one, not even counting the weapons
Police have come again to kill the peace
Father of five beaten dead like a dog
Scary thing is that they did what they are trained to do..

Cold winter's night doesn't mean the same to everyone
No vacancy sign not just inconvenient
He died in his sleep, doesn't mean it's not murder
Well at least they say that nobody knew his name..

Just another accident they say, I won't swallow that pill
When there's a method to this madness
Capitalism kills…

They call it a war, but we call it survival
Fists and stones and no match for their guns
If it's a land without people then tell that to the parents
Of the children killed in a place that they call home…

Just a misunderstanding they say, I won't swallow that pill
When there's a method to this madness
Capitalism kills.

It could be you, it could be me
Until we kill this madness, None of us are free

A dollar a day how can that be too expensive
When it saves a life how can they bat an eye
When saving profits comes before saving people
The only thing I know is things have got to change..

'Cause it's just another accident they say, I won't swallow that pill
When there's a method to this madness
Capitalism kills,
Capitalism kills…
