lyrics

VERSE 1:
We live in a world filled with thieves
Who lie and steal from "the least of these"
Leaving them alone to starve and freeze
While sitting safe and warm and free from disease.

CHORUS:
So God save the suffering wealthy
For they don't know they're in need
They swear up and down they are healthy
Completely unaware of the greed
That;s killing them, that's killing me
That's kiling everybody

VERSE 2:
The burden that they bear is easy to disguise
But hard to recognize with my afflicted eyes
'Cause I am just like them, oblivious to pain
Content to just pretend as long as I am entertained

CHORUS:
So God save the suffering wealthy
For they don't know they're in need
They swear up and down they are healthy
Completely unaware of the greed
That's killing them, that's killing me
That's kiling everybody

BRIDGE:
And I am too concerned with my own comfort
When I use what I think I've earned
To pay for what I think I deserve.

CHORUS:
So God save the suffering wealthy
For they don't know they're in need
They swear up and down they are healthy
Completely unaware of the greed
That's killing them, that's killing me
That's kiling everybody
