Lyrics
The hate among men
That comes from the wanting of gold
Destroys everyone - young and old

When men reach the end of the chase
And find that their life is a waste
They find their gold was in their chances
Now there's no new chance
No second chance
No new chance

When hate rules men's hearts
A strange kind of justice prevails
