Am tired of eight to five
Honesty, as a virtue
receives a torture
in oppressor's hands

Let me go engage
In another trade
make it fast;
be celebrate
be honoured,
be recognized.

My finger will loot treasures
my hand will cart away reserves
the bigger my booty,
the many my titles.

My people applaud dishonesty,
Do not ask reason why.

My finger will loot treasures
my hand will cart away reserves
the bigger my booty,
the many my titles.

It sure is a messed up world.
Yet out of this feeling of hopelessness. The fact that their greed is seen so clear and dispised. Goodness will overcome this vile act of evil..
