Blanketed in darkness 
Hatred is your shield 
Hurting one another losing all free will 
Listening to the voices that lead you all astray 
Your eyes are shut in darkness no brightness in the day 
Money is the prize for selling out your soul 
Fame is your new wife that holds you when your cold 
Now you're just a puppet, spreading out lies  
Watching as all goodness slowly starts to die 
Those who see the truth will never lose there sight 
Enlightened with the true one we'll continue on the fight

    Yes indeed... I don't think I could ever have that much money and not help out someone in need....
