5. Zombie Bank

(John & Tom)

I got my money in a zombie bank,
A zombie bank, a zombie bank.
I got my money in a zombie bank,
They're dead but they just don't know it.
 
I check my balance and there's money there.
And yet Paul Krugman says the cupboard's bare.
And all the tellers have a zombie stare.
They're dead but they just don't know it!
 
My money's in a bank that doesn't lend,
That doesn't spend. It's all pretend.
They'll flunk the stress test.
They’ve reached the end.
They're dead but they just don't know it.
 
They're too big to fail.
They're too big for jail.
They're sucking money
On a breathtaking scale.

 
Do the math. Do the monster math.
Zombie bank, zombie bank.
I got my money in a zombie bank,
They're dead but they just don't know it.
