Man! Oh, man,
earth breeds no feebler beast than thee
strange how your beauty has gone
your world is deaf to hope, deaf to its death
destitute of honour, deprived of genuine love
greed gags you down to the deep
honesty queries at what you say,
hardened fortitude shields you from disgrace
but, you defy all odds to escape from this hell.
Man! Oh, man, you’ve ceased to be man,
you’ve become a demon!
Why let your heart gnaws at what it knows
why let this world frown?
