Human nature can be a most desperate thing?

These Hallowed halls

Frequented by myth and griffin

Whose presence Guards these priceless minds

Protecting the unwritten novels

M C Squared and ingenious thoughts

The prophesy of zero one


This gluttony of ideas thirsting on capitalisms juice

Summoning their messiahs to walk among us

The commodities of life, this treasured bible

Children the future and Capitalism dissects

Yet Another batch of disciples


So what care I for prophets of doom

Population before climate

Religion over peace

Vanity before reason

Pride over poverty

Cap and gown before that which created me

For I live high above these ghetto streets


Yet my peace is drowned by Evening chorus

Screams from the gutter

Another tattoo and the rush of heroin

Another type of messiah

Something for the poor to believe in

Just another nickel and dime resource to me


Yet to hear this is a damnation of me

This arrogance over nature

To control that thing

That shackles our existence

That jails our thoughts

Prostitutes our freedom

And lets us die without reason


This way of life

Of poverty and desperation

Of concrete and aborted foetus

Of welfare cheques and sex for sale


Of unhappy beings behind

Unhappy doors

Protecting their own portals of betrayal

In a private subjugated hell

For Compassion has left these mortal beings

And my mind is closed, for there is no profit for me


But conscience is my jury

And nailed to this holy cross

The verdict is written

Vermin under the butterfly

For compassion was never my thing

And Human nature can be,

A most desperate thing
