Oh, say can't you see
By the light of the dark
That they whither, they fear, and they try not to starve?
I ask: do you hear
From high in that lap
The screams of the many who've finally snapped?
Oh, how can't you feel
In the pits of your hearts
The pain that your mountains of greed once did start?
I suppose bills have blinded you
The coins took your souls
And where black hearts should rest
Now, there are holes
The green of your eyes, now blackened with need
Was absorbed by the endless money and greed
Now you spit on the poor you claimed once to love
But one close-nearing day, you will find them above
The suffocating grasps drowning them in a stream
They'll swim up to you, they'll sing and they'll scream
As they tear out your throats as they burn all your money
"Oh, say can you see?" they will ask you so bluntly
