"Mr. Greed" lyrics

Mr. Greed

Mr. Greed
Why you got to own
Everything that you see?
Mr. Greed
Why you put a chain
On everybody living free?

You're hungering for his house
You're hungering for his wife
And your appetite
Will never be denied
You're a devil of consumption
I hope you choke
Mr. Greed

How do you get away with robbing?
Did your mother teach you how?
I hear you got away with murder
Did you do your mama proud?

Mr. Greed
Why you got to take
More than you can ever use?
Bring them to their knees
Isn't it enough
Just to win
While they lose?

You bring no honor to the game
You feast upon the blood and pain
But the bones you hoard
Can only bring you shame
There's corruption in your path
Be that your epitaph, Mr. Greed

How do you get away with robbing?
Did your mother teach you how?
I hear you got away with murder
Did you do your mama proud?
