Lyrics

Greedy Minds

Written By: Caley Watts

With tired eyes I say no
You had your fun then took a bow
You played your games then went away
And now I'm left with
An open door but there's no house, we are sinking fast but dying slow

Oh no

Legend has it she was robbed
Broken hearted now she sobs
They sweet talked her then took away
Don't you make the same mistake
Keep your treasures in your hold
They bring sorry with their gold

Oh no

The water is black, the sky red
Greedy minds minds once said
Our lifestyle we won't negotiate, you'll just have to sit and wait
Until we've got what we thirst for
Of course you matter but we come first, boy

Oh no
