As acres of wildlife become prime property
& battles across the world increase
millions starve as some feast
& merchants of death
dance for prosperity

||I dunno. In every age there've been prophets of doom, but somehow humanity survives.
||Survival is just part of the issue.
||We've got to achieve a higher standard.
||(shrugging his shoulders) Who needs an altruistic head trip? Most people only care bout dare own ass.
||The whole planet is part of our ass.
