Karma's not your servant

You can't believe in Karma
After all the things you've done
And you can't believe in justice
If you think that you have won

You can't blame those around you
Or say you had no choice
And you can't say it was all their words
When they came from your own voice

Don't preach about the eight folds
with a sly grin on your face
Claiming you have found enlightenment
Like it was some kind of race

Karma's not your servant
To call in times of need
Karma looks into your soul
Recording evil thoughts and greed

You can't escape your Karma
or change the things you've done
There's no place you can hide now
And there's no place left to run
