We crave for power, land and for food
Desire flaring as a wildfire is not so good
To build the roads forest are mowed
We want roads to be fancy and broad
No minds are genuine, no heart has love
People are selfish throughout the globe
I fear the people, their tongue as sword
Relent to get oppressed, oppose to get warred.
Next-door neighbours are strangers
Plea for the help, in need or in danger
Through the window, they will ponder
Shoot video, instead of help they could render.
We desire a bicycle, then aspire a car
On to the Ferrari and then to a plane
Fulfill our desires with money we save
No time for family, we work as a slave
Ugly or beautiful, brilliant or naive
Poor or rich, coward or brave
Craving for wealth is an inner plague
Crave and crave until the day, we reach the grave.
