IF THE FIAT DOLLAR CRASHES, LORD HAVE MERCY.

THE GOLD RUSH IS COMING.
ARE YOU ABOARD THE TRAIN?
IF YOU ARE THE LAST MY FRIEND,
YOU WILL FEEL THE PAIN.

THE GOLD RUSH IS COMING.
IT WILL BE HERE SOON.
I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO SEE YOU 
WORK FROM NOON TILL NOON.

ARE YOU GOING TO SELL SUPPLIES?
ARE YOU GOING TO PAN?
THE GOLD RUSH WILL TAKE IT'S TOLL,
ON THOSE WHO DO NOT PLAN.

ARE YOU GOING TO WORK FOR OTHERS?
FOR MINIMUM DAILY WAGE?
ARE YOU GOING TO WAIT IN LINE
PRAY YOUR NAME IS PAGED?

THE GOLD RUSH IS COMING.
ARE YOU ON THE TRAIN?
I DON'T WANT YOU LEFT BEHIND.
I COULDN'T BARE THE PAIN.

PLEASE DON'T LET THE FEVER,
TAKE YOUR LIFE AWAY.
NOW'S THE TIME TO MAKE YOUR PLANS,
SO YOU HAVE TIME TO PLAY.

IF YOU WORK AND PLAN TODAY.
YOU CAN PLAY TOMORROW.
IF YOU DON'T WORK AND PLAN.
THEN YOU'LL HAVE TO BORROW.

UNDERSTAND, IF YOU BORROW.
THE BANKSTERS OWN YOUR TIME.
YOU HAVE TO WORK FROM NOON TILL NOON.
EVENTUALLY LOOSE YOUR MIND.
