Capitalism is to turn nature into commodities
And commodities into capital
The live green earth
Is transformed into lifeless dead gold bricks

But every empire triumphant In that heartless way
Plants the seeds of its own destruction

Empires are welded together
With deliberate deceit
They are built upon
The Sword, The Whip, and The Gun

But every empire triumphant In that heartless way
Plants the seeds of its own destruction
