Chorus

You in your fancy

Material world

Don't see the links of chain

Binding blood

Verse 1

Our own ancestors

Are hungry ghosts

Closets so full of bones

They won't close

Verse 2

Call it upward mobility

But you've been sold down the river

Just another form of slavery

And the whole man-made white world

Is your master

Chorus

You in your fancy

Material world

Create in your own image

A supreme god

Verse 3

Your virgin mary

Your holy ghosts

Claimed to be pure of heart

Have hands that are stained with blood

Chorus

You in your fancy

Material world

Don't see the links of chain

Binding

Find Love!
