Once A Place Of Natural Beauty

Once a place of natural beauty for all to be enjoyed
Due to the financial greed of developers the park has been destroyed
Most of the trees shelter for the ringtail and brush tail possums have been cut away
It is an ugly sight that I do gaze upon today.

Huge mounds of earth and clay dug up by bulldozers an ugly sight to see
The destruction of natural habitat for development does seem all wrong to me
The birds and tree dwelling animals need every bush and tree
The financial greed of the wealthy few give rise to Nature's poverty.

The money hungry developers they do not understand
That you render most of the local wildlife homeless when you take from them their land
That in their fights for new territories many of them will die
These are known facts I speak of and facts do never lie.

Just mounds of earth and white clay where beauty did reside
Most of the birds and animals who lived here through dispossession would have died
The destruction of their natural habitat to extinction only lead
For many of Nature's birds and animals losing out to human greed.

Selfish Social Climbers

Selfish social climbers with an eye on greed,
Dig themselves a bigger hole to get and deceive.
With it getting deeper.
That hole they dig is wide to get...
Deeper.
But the teasing of the greed they can not seem to leave.

Selfish social climbers with an eye on greed,
Dig themselves a bigger hole to get and deceive.
And it gets bigger.
That hole that's dug they dig for them,
Gets deeper!
And the cheating with the greed deceives their need,
To feed.

Impressed with a false success.
Those selfish social climbers with an eye on greed.
With a wish to just charade their best.
Those selfish social climbers with an eye on greed,
Addressing only themselves and their selfish needs.
And digging bigger holes from them they will never leave.

Deeper.
Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Getting deeper in a hole,
To expose their roles.
And getting deeper...
Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Getting deeper in a hole,
To expose their roles.
And getting deeper.

Impressed with a false success.
And doing it with selfishness.
Those selfish social climbers with an eye on greed.
Digging bigger holes from them they will never leave.
Just to address their confessed selfish needs.

Deeper.
Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Getting deeper in a hole,
To expose their roles.
And getting deeper.
Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Getting deeper in a hole,
To expose their roles.
And getting deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.

Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking.

Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking...
Deeper.
Sinking.

Those selfish social climbers digging deeper.

To Mat Hyuin

Fell greed begot by man, by men in numbers
lost control of themselves, became wasted
needed to fill the fell void, the darkness
in twisted desire, seeking without thinking
thinking without caring, without compassion
grinning to grow beyond the individual
striving towards a green light called dollars
Dollars become numbers, become control
Control our lives, take away our spirit
Numbers, so contemplated, become control
green light turns greed to control
lost our spirits in the mathy green light
gave it up for control, for responsibility
lost the spontaneity, lost the caring
gave it up for a better life, they said
then turned the better life into making math
math was numbers in green light,
copulating with greed, carressing greed
taking greed and growing, losing sight
perpetual motion of growth, of stagnation
where the dream shrivels and dies
where the germs grow and grow, and infect
now the whole pond smells, stinks of filth
no more insects grow and fly away
only the germs grow now, without compassion
devouring, eating, less and less they became
trying to fill up, ate one another to grow
became empty and wondered why they stank so
lied, told one another it was a good smell
and they could grow without thinking again

In Loving Memory: Mat Hyuin
Father, Sister, Mother, Brother - Lost to us before his time

Selfish

Selfishness is an infested disease
This is my statement this what I believe
They pretend others don't exist
Spreading like an incurable cyst
But it is only them in their presence
They only care for I
And their fat pocks lined with their revenue
Are they blind to others?
Greed, greed, greed
That infested greed,
And there's many more they breed
Once upon a time

Selfishness and greed sat upon the wall with a dime
Thought and pondered about that evil crime
They asked amongst themselves, what does God hate the most?
They came up with a cunning plan against the holy ghost
They plan was to kill for their pockets to fill
Their master plan took an effect
They didn't notice yet
Seeping through their bones
Leaking in all five zones
Of their body
Thinking their plan was solid
The effects were kicking in

Then a deep sleep came upon them
The whispers shouted, condemn, condemn, condemn
The voice of the negative energy spoke
They laid still, reality gave them a poke
Fear overtook their bodies
A loud voice uttered
"Bones fractured
Your aim will be in vain
Your self-serving will amputate you
Your wealth will decompose your flesh
Until there is nothing left
Your possessions will lose value

This is your testimony, this is your truth
What would you choose
To go about your plan or get out while you can? "
