Started in pursuit of happiness
Then came endless days of work for debt
As he looked up to the hypocrites
Heard the things they say but soon forget

Saw the sociopaths with their corporate cards
Blowing smokescreens with their liberal cause
Said he never would be one of them
Oh how slowly it crept into him

As it clouded up his conscience
He got caught up in the objects
Of G-R-E-E-D

Now a big fish in a bigger pond
Swimming with the sharks that brought him down
To the cesspool of his confidants
To the parties with the debutants
Blast the right-wing from his velvet tower
Then he gives himself to happy hour
Says he never would be one of them
Oh how slowly it’s becoming him

As it clouded up his conscience
He got caught up in the objects
Of G-R-E-E-D

He can’t bother with a conscience
He’s too busy at the office
Of G-R-E-E-D

G-R-E-E-D

He can’t bother with a conscience
He’s too busy at the office
Of G-R-E-E-D
