What’s going on with the world today?
What’s going on with man?
Why in the name of all that is right?

We’ve taken our sweet liberty
We’re free to pollute and to waste all the earth
We’re rich and we’re wanting for nought
We need take no care for the misery found
In the weak, in the poor, or the bought
We live in the moment – with caution to wind
And sail on a decadent sea
For this world, and its wealth, and its beautiful things
Was created for, ME! ME! ME!
