The people of the West

The people of the West
They struggle and they strive
They watch the big container ships
Into the port, arrive

The people of the West
They build and they destroy
You seen their cities growing
Right up to the sky

The people of the West
They work hard all the day
To keep the wheels of progress
Moving down the way

And some are more important
Than others in the land
And some rise right up to the top
While others sleep in the sand

The people of the West
They live and die all day
They fight upon the battlefield
Without a reason why

The people of the West
They live a life so strange
They try to make it better
But nothing ever change

And some have business success
And some of them get beat
And many find no help at all
Without the mark of the beast

The people of the West
Consume more than they need
The deserts grow the ice it melts
As discontent it breed

The people of the West
They try to beat the drive
They try to climb to success
They try to win the prize

The people of the West
Turn to democracy
They put their trust in science
And that it sets them free

While the icecap melting
With the weathers change
The people of the west
Become the people of the strange
