Fill your pockets full of greed
And watch them overflow.
Losing sight of what you need.

Selfish men live by no creed,
Only what they know.
Fill your pockets full of greed.

Own trees so fruitless without seed,
No point in where they grow.
Losing sight of what you need.

Gluttony to pet and feed,
The lowest of the low.
Fill your pockets full of greed.

Stay the course and take the lead,
Dragging more below.
Losing sight of what you need.

A grave mistake, you have agreed,
No excuse to show.
Fill your pockets full of greed.
Losing sight of what you need.
