The Greed of Lesser Men Lyrics
The wrongs of others against me,
Shall not inspire me to act in kind.
I will not morally bankrupt myself,
Because of a culture built on lies!

I will not let the greed of lesser men,
Reduce me to a thief,
But the things that you would covet,
Aren't even things you need.

A petty race we have become,
That we would steal from others,
It's immoral, but it's easy,
Click of a button.

You never took anything from me,
So why would I give a damn?
It's not so much the act itself,
But what it means for man.

It's a sign that in our core,
We're broken,
When given the opportunity to fail,
We do in droves.

When you decide to take from them,
Who cares if it's right or wrong?
The moral code you claim to bear,
Is suddenly gone.

Your peers all seem to do it,
And I suppose that makes it right,
Because it's easier to lower yourself,
Than it is to stand and fight.

If you don't believe we're worthless,
Then you know we can do better,
Let's push towards a better us,
And see mankind unfettered.

It all starts here,
With me and you,
We will look back on ourselves with pride,
Until the end, no compromise, we'll see this through.
