Envy is nothing more than the devil in disguise, spreading rumors and vicious lies.

Digging in for for all he's worth
rolling round in useless dirt.

He spreads in us, an evil kind
burning deep into our mind.

Until our hearts are full of hate
we walk willing through the gate.

It eats and eats until its full
the power o'er us, it still can pull...

Until we see the light of day,
we can't walk the special way.

There's more to life than envy spite
it's doing what we know is right.

To live a life without his spree
only then can we be free.
