Too Late To Change

Sometime at an early age a strange call beckoned you

It urged you on to selfishness and told you what to do

It taught you the word trust was just a tool that you could use

To manipulate your target make them do what you would choose

And still the call kept haunting you as you raced toward the end

You went through life with blinders on, no chance to make a friend

The call that you had answered is the one that's known as greed

It's tempting lure of empty wealth is one few fail to heed

Too late to change, too late to change

Just like a lemming you're blind to your fate

You fail to question until it's too late

Too late to change, too late to change

Driven by something you don't understand

Your lack of compassion is killing our land

It made you poison once clear rivers, raze forests to the ground

So you cut your expenses at the expense of those around

You did not care your every touch brought sickness to the land

The only green you care bout is the kind that you can spend

Somehow after all this time you make it to the end

And stare into that darkest void that longs to be your friend

But something deep inside of you resists the need to quit

You realize that only emptiness resides within the pit

You realize the harm you've done and what could yet come true

The crimes that you've committed and what you still can do

The goals you once held dearly now seem very strange

Your new found care for mankind shows it's not too late to change
