A kinder loving world (Lyrics)

You lavish attention on any glittering eyes

Another transaction, with insecure prize

Tinkering the systems to bring you success

Rendering the rest, powerless

 

And you hold over me

Such a terrifying power…

But we are getting wise

Starting to make allies…

 

Together we will mould

A kinder loving world;

You’ll have to face the tide

Because progress is on our side

 

The small get smaller, until they disappear

But you keep on growing, competing with your peers

You live in a world where injustice is fair

The instability you bring goes beyond compare

 

And you hold over me

Such a terrifying power…

But we are getting wise

Starting to make allies…

 

Together we will mould

A kinder loving world;

You’ll have to face the tide

Because progress is on our side

 

Persistent, persuasive, you’re a living myth

How can you face eating dinner with your kids?

I’ll no longer let you…

Cajole me too

 

Together we will mould

A kinder loving world;

You’ll have to face the tide

Because progress is on our side
