Verse

There’s planet, tiny and blue

Cruising our galaxy

With air to breathe, water and food,

For life to prosper peacefully


On top of the food chain

Mankind in its glory

The pride of creation, a smart brain

With untamed imagination


Bridge

Everything’s hunky-dory

But we overlook carelessly

That human spawn is sawing off

The bough it is sitting on


Chorus

We are selfish and numb

Push our wealth to the max

Witless, stupid and dumb

But the thin ice shows cracks

Our hands are covered with blood

We shoot other’s wad

Can we abide this facade?

Interludium

We are black, white, a motley crew

Different cultures and views

But all of us truly despise

Being governed by devils in disguise


Cold-blooded we keep profiting

It’s impossible to withstand

Until we all loose everything

As the system ‘s getting out of hand


But we imperturbably

Bark up the wrong tree

Verse

The only thing of value

Is increasing our revenue

Growing figures and numbers

The cash flow never slumbers


Bridge

To alter our course is not that hard

We hold each and every card

Show respect for nature

Our planet and all creatures
