Our species squanders evolution
Hardwired hate and jealousy
Excess and poverty are all too common
Disappointment a global theme
Endless battles are caused by different gods and unlike flesh
Progress equals footprints on the moon

Our first mistake was when we crawled out of the sea
into a bright green paradise now turning gray
(Opportunity - Opportunity for cruelty)
Never pass up a chance to ruin someone's day

Broken promise
Infidelity inverts a smile
Civil warfare
Familiar enemies stacked in a pile
Wrong convictions
Primetime TV
Self indulgent tragedy
Sadomasochistic opportunity

World leaders attend lavish banquets
Subjects scrape by and sacrifice
Technology is racing forward
while character drags years behind
Charity is a status symbol
Just like frivolity and greed
Might makes right
Price makes might
One day a red sun breaks the cycle, and sets us free

Our second error is when we crawled down from the trees
Picked up a rock and smashed the face of paradise
(Opportunity - Opportunity for cruelty)
Never ignore a chance to fuck up someone's life
