I have been to a place
Where criminals are given awards
And politicians slide through revolving doors
Where talk of the rule of law
Becomes a tool in tug of war
And leaders become bidders in the stock exchange
At the expense of the poor
 
I’ve been to a place where they send people to the moon
While others become prophets of doom
A place where every omen warns
Of the coming counter-storm
But still the gluttons gorge, dull and swinish-eyed,
Ignore the rising tide
 
I have seen selfishness blind and ignorant
And greediness become the passion of crime
Humanity! Humanity!
The truth is still to be challenged 
By all who seek justice
 
I have been to a place
Where the golden calf rules
And the poor pay more
While the rich have it all
Where truth is scourged 
And honesty purged
And silence rules behind every door
 
Foundations crumble
And in the distance, I hear rumbling
The fall of Rome
Humanity! Humanity!
The truth is still to be challenged 
By all who seek justice
