Profit Prophecy

Prophet’s name was stolen
Appropriated
For the sinful and the wicked
Tool for gluttony

Prophet’s name was stolen
Appropriated
For the sinful and the wicked
Fuel for gluttony

Prophet turned to profit
When the prophecy was lost
As the great abyss was formed
Between worthiness and cost

And those who stole the prophet’s name
Whose business is loss
Are consuming all using their slaves
The workers feed the boss

Prophet’s name was stolen
Appropriated
For the sinful and the wicked
Tool for gluttony

Prophet’s name was stolen
Appropriated
For the sinful and the wicked
Fuel for gluttony

It’s simply fundamental
That profit unabated
Will leave the world an empty husk
The darkness satiated

The light will only shine
On a desolated land
Illuminating only death
The ace in Devil’s hand

The only way to counteract
React step back go slack
Stop struggling to slave
For those trinkets that you lack
Stop to help another with the burden on his back
Stop to help another with the burden on his back

Charity is sanity
In a world all gone to hell
You can hear its virtue ringing
Like a master crafted bell
And when those peals they move you
And in your heart you’re feeling well
Look to the sky
To God’s good eye
And this feel free to yell

I will tend this world
Which you have sent me
Because I know this world
Is also more of me

No more shall I take
Than what I truly need
To live to love and to believe
In our mortality

Prophet’s name was stolen
Appropriated
For the sinful and the wicked
Tool for gluttony

Prophet’s name was stolen
Appropriated
For the sinful and the wicked
Fuel for gluttony
