Root of All Evil - lyrics

Show song Facebook

The economies of greed
Strengthened by the politics of fear
And the division among the masses
Used as a tool for domination
Root of all evil
Root of all evil
While the one-percenters get wealthier
Millions don’t get enough food for the day
State policies are rigged to the benefits
Of those who own most of world’s money
When eight richest ones possess the same wealth
As the bottom 3.6 billion people*
This is no longer just a matter of inequality
We know the system allows this to happen
Worshiping Mammon along with its demons
To strengthen deeds revolving around greed
Money and power, forming evil coalition
Where cruelties start, and decency ends
Root of all evil
Root of all evil
Who are they to ever claim of possessing every right
To exploit the beauty that has been given to us?
All they do is to venture into the heights of corruption
Taking all the resources so future generations will be left to die
Time of destruction has begun
Watch the downfall of the empire
