Title: Selfish Idiots

Selfish idiots walk the street
Stepping on the ones they meet
They spend their days with eyes shut tight
Don’t hear the screaming in the night

Selfish idiots waste their time
Concerned only with ‘me’ and ‘mine’
They ignore the ones that are lost and scared
Don’t seem to know, don’t seem to care

Selfish idiots despise and hate
Always concerned about running late
They don’t stop to take a look
Don’t see the dying, don’t give a fuck

Selfish idiots are totally blind
With pointing fingers and narrow minds
They don’t care to sympathise
Don’t open their hearts or open their eyes

Selfish idiots upon their wall
Killing time before they fall
They feel safe they feel secure
Don’t think they’ll ever need a cure

Selfish idiots cry in the night
Finally realise they’ve wasted their life
They were blind and now they see
Don’t they deserve our sympathy?
