lyrics

Everyone runs
All at the same time
It’s the chase of the tongues
For the same old crime

Madness in people
Has them fighting wars
Step over their freedom
And locking their doors

Instead of landing a hand
They’re cutting their paths
Putting their names to lands
And owning each other

Have to have more than you
Have to be bigger
Put their hearts in a queue
Fingers on triggers

The greed of man will kill him
It never could fulfil him
As he burns quicker
The greed of man is thicker
The world is burning quicker
As he fights richer

Poor in their souls, they are blinded still
As they tear down each other’s free will
Soon there will be nothing to fight for
Nothing to own

Slowly it’s gone
The world that we know
There’s moonlight at dawn
And trees that don’t grow

They separate skin
And prayers they do
Cuffing love as a sin
Claiming to know the truth

Bodies are sold
For chewing some bones
They’re still searching for gold
Under the cold stones

There’s enemies here
And enemies there
There’s mass that breathes in fear
And nothing to share

The greed of man will kill him
It never could fulfil him
As he burns quicker
The greed of man is thicker
The world is burning quicker
As he fights richer

Poor in their souls, they are blinded still
As they tear down each other’s free will
Soon there will be nothing to fight for
Nothing to own

There’s enemies here
