Steal or Borrow (by GalaxyRat)
There is never enough food for all the hungry mouths
in this small, banged up town.
We can choose to steal or borrow,
will we do it today or tomorrow?
It fights in your mind against the hunger for the first few days,
when you beg the Lord your soul to take.
If you die and there's still food
You'll be doing the town good.
Less mouths to feed and less complaints and muttering
yet much more suffering.
We launch like angry wolves when we do get
food, and then we rip
it like wild animals.
It won't be long til we are cannibals.
Will we steal or borrow
today or tomorrow?
Your morals hold strong
as you hold on.
But hunger causes even the purest hearts to turn,
and one day they will learn.
