Money controls mankind.
The rich will survive,
leaving the rest behind.
Laughing at the poor man's life.

In a world, full of desire,
to be admired.
Buying more stuff, than they'll ever need.
Is respect now based on greed?

Dollar signs are seen in everyone's eyes
They have everything, but they're not satisfied.
To earn the gold, their mouths are filled with lies.
Other needs, other than capital, are denied.

The lesson they will never learn
is to give it all away.
Coins and bills can burn,
but charity will always stay.
