Third world nations living under constant threat
The price they pay for the luxury we get
Wars for profit we allow our leaders to wage
While pouring out their lies
From every newspaper front page

Austerity in wealthy land
It’s theft on demand

Species are dying are dead and now extinct
And even now we are still afraid to think
Of all our waste and all of our extremes
We’re still afraid to go of our dreams

Soon there won’t be anything left to prize
Our dreams will evaporate before our eyes
The third world vision on the TV set
Will be the only future our kids will get

Living in a financial trap
Health and welfare close to collapse
The future’s in the grasping Hands of those who live by

Theft on demand
