Toxic gains
Economic raise
Society's dying rage.

Collapse of the system
End of the line
Black gold
In our bank tonight

False truths
False lies
Monetary suicide
Make a withdrawal tonight

Unexpected crash
– bull sh** –
Been in the plan
Since time began

Toxic gains
Economic raise
Society's dying rage.

Illness of the sand
From the Pharaoh
To the serfs
of the land

False gold
False gods
Devils among us
High within the hierarchy

Commercial Treason
The outsourcing of man
All his talents
Undermined

Toxic gains
Economic raise
Society's dying rage.

Talent show of greed
Show your best
Gotta be wealthier than the rest.
This is our creed
Blown aside and we die
Diluted Insides
Overblown effect
Straight from our media outlet

No funding
Lack of expense
Commercialism dead till the end
End of the world

Toxic gains
Economic raise
Society's dying rage.

Everyone else who has commented seems to love this, but...eh, personally, I can't really see this as a song...you know? A poem, sure, but...nice variety of words, though, and interesting rhymes...

i like the fact that it isn't a topic most people write poetry about. it's a lot easier to write poems about love and nature than about the economy. amazing job! brava!

I like ho u used three lines repeatedly throughout the poem. it gave it emphasis. i aslo love the ay you placed and paired ords to better portray your message. It was hard not to understand the significance. well done!

I like that you obviously thought about the lyrics before you wrote them. Good work, and I respect that your lyrics aren't about love or desire.
