The pride is taking over

(Hahahaha HA! HA! HA HA! Hahahaha HA!... HA!...) x2

~Tormented, agonized scream~
Haha, look at me! Can you believe I made this?
Haha, look at me! I am the most noticed
Haha, look at me! I am the favorite
Haha, look at me! I'm better than you

Hahahaha

Haha, look at me! My fame has unfurled
Haha, look at me! Could life be any sweeter?
Haha, look at me! I've traveled the whole world
Haha, look at me! I'm the next Justin Bieber
~Tormented, agonized scream~

To care for no one else, except ourselves

The greed is getting to you!

~Tormented, agonized scream~
Haha, look at me! I visited Las Vegas
Haha, look at me! I made an easy million
Haha, look at me! I've got my own tour bus
Haha, look at me! I have the best stallion

Hahahaha

Haha, look at me! Check out my giant mansion
Haha, look at me! I've got my own statue
Haha, look at me! My money's growing expansion
Haha, look at me! I will never thank you!
~Tormented, agonized scream~

Chorus
Guitar Solo



~Creepy, grumpily, evil RAP~
Bridge:
What you're doing to yourself is your own concocted venom
Killing you a little more for every time you give in
Feels like you're in a never ending state of ever growing plenum
Every growing heavy step you take; feels like you're retinned
It's time for you to change, or forever be in this growing torment
Every day that passes you the streams of punishment grow brighter
All the times you try to please yourself you smell your failure vent
Every breath you take the air around you feels a little tighter
~Creepy, grumpily, evil RAP~

~Dieing scream!~
Pride and greed!
Gluttony
Forever be lost in thee
Pride and greed!
This envy
In agony; eternally
~Dieing scream!~

Like heavy metal for the virtuous. It's alright to let things out, but don't let things bring you down.

Excellent write about Pride and Greed, Henry. I love that this is a song and really wish I could hear it song. My own voice cannot lend to it enough to make it ring well for me, but that takes nothing away from your song, just my bad voice *laughs*

I like that it's religious, and I like how it's understandable. Now if I heard it as a song it might have been a little to repetitive for me, with all the Haha, look at me!s.
But, you have a gift with relating to the world it seems, and seeing things how they really are. I think you did a good job, I do like it.

Last year Oil companies made biggest profit ever. Killed off a great sea. Pay off the fool's who will learn oil goes to the bottom and will kill the sea off completely one day of animal life. I like this poem. Pride and greed is the goal of this world. The sad part. The poor countries will be took with the rich countries when all fall apart. I like the description and the purpose of this poem. A outstanding poem. Thank you.

A very good song that is to be played to the whole world. People should understand this poem. Are you going to play it into a song? That would be awesome.
