Everything Counts Lyrics

The handshake
Seals the contract
From the contract
There’s no turning back
The turning point
Of a career
In korea, being insincere
The holiday
Was fun packed
The contract
Still intact

The grabbing hands
Grab all they can
All for...

    It’s about capitalism.

    This song to me is about how we are all connected. Whatever we do affects everyone, all in all its really about karma. Which ironically is a theme in a few of there songs i feel.

    It's about how different the reality of the big recording contract was from what the young band thought it would be. "The handshake seals the contract, from the contract there is no turning back."
