The Lyrics

Times are always changing, men cost less to use,
Third World countries are starving, to make Nikes for you,

(Refrain) I'm falling even less in love with shoes,
It don't matter how they could look on you,
And the one thing CEO's don't see,
The people who live in poverty...

I'm getting what they're lacking, they make about 5 cents,
I don't see revelation, it just doesn't make sense,


(Refrain 2)But the only thing that I really know, is that I have shoes and that they don't,
And even if they're getting paid as they do, I'm not happy and how could you...

There's nothing more to lose,
There is little more to win,
Hopefully soon, they will see their sin,
There is nothing there...
If only someone cared...
That they'd be treated fair...

Times are always changing, men cost less to use,
Third World countries are starving, to make Nikes for you...

(Refrain 2)

Waiting for a shoelace here with you...(x4)
