Gold and silver sparkle like the sky,
Arm yourself with the intense weapons thrown you,
The tongues of men and the speeches of the rich,

Lips and hardened hands,
Build walls high and march the borders,
Trap yourself and your kin in the mind,
The smooth-sided abyss of time,
The yells and shrieks of those above you,

Technological advances to provoke pride,
Wars to provoke confidence,
Death to reveal shame,
Crime to satisfy authority,
Great leaders and weak followers,
Wise wanderers and scholars ignored,
Young children stripped of hope,
Old men to die of insanity,
Society shines with neon and glamour,
As our world dies.
