It climbs higher and higher
The price of gas at the bowser
Threatening the world economy
I can’t understand, for the life of me

And the wars rage on
Waiting for a messiah to be born
To usher in the kingdom of heaven
Put an end to all the sufferings in the land

Governments continue their governance
Lovers continue their romance
Oligarchs and corporations shed their masks
take a leading part in the governing tasks

But the overawed simple villager
now finds out the truth of the matter
For under the guise of religious sheepskin
Lurks beasts that devour souls of his kin....
