"Selfish" as written by and Stanley/lukather Lynch....
Ashes to ashes
That's how it ends
(You go from) heartache to heartache
As you make amends
(Just) bigger and bigger
But two steps back
You want something from nothing
And you're so exact

You think you're a rich man
Now you misbehave
You're not a free man running
Just a comfortable slave

So selfish
You got more than you can use
But you still don't see
You're so selfish
And you're running out of room

Deeper and deeper
As you forge ahead
Higher and higher
But you've been mislead
Harder and harder
You grind the stone
Faster faster faster
Till you're skin and bones

Too much ambition
Without relief
That ain't heaven
But it's what you teach

So selfish
You got more than you can use
But you still don't see
You're so selfish
And you're running out of room

The world was made in seven days
Your heads are bowed to Gods in praise
Civilized man can only be saved
When courage and wisdom are finally raised

Who's got the answer
Give me the cure
Don't rush to judgment
Until you're sure

So selfish
You got more than you can use
But you still don't see
You're so selfish
And you're running out of room
