about

Greed focuses on the greed for popular acceptance, not greed for money, but for power over others.

lyrics

The world is not enough for me
To me every vote counts, and I only hope to please
We're begging or we're sucking up, but always on our knees
I require your desire, your love is what I need
But I can't get enough, more than gluttony it's greed

Find me bugging like a fiend, not fronting I'm being real
What I'm itching for with greed is nothing you see or feel
But mentally you can sense it, on guard like you're fencing
Pause like you're pensive, calm and collective
Try and be sensitive, this tension, it can haunt ya
Try to please 'em all and then you'll form a fame monster
And now they don't want ya, the advertising company'll flaunt ya
Then hang you out to dry like dirty laundry
To hide ya. Getting big money, it could harm me
Because you think it's phony that the label pays an army
To say my shit is dope, when you know it's cut with industry
But not having you love my music it could be the end of me
Like puddles with anemones, my flow is full of energy
Clown fish are punch lines so your ears be friends with me  
And now this is crunch time, that you hit play
And if you say you think it's wack I think my lifetime drops a day
And my heart skips a beat beat
I catch up and bustle begging kneeling at your feet
Then you say I'm not your style there's other fish in the sea
But I need every monkey in the barrel to be loving me
Yeah you could call me greedy, a sinner 'cause I'm needy
My heart pumps pride but my jugular is bleeding
Love is all that heals him, your desire he breathes 
Everyone must love me I must be all your only precious...greed....

To me every vote counts, and I only hope to please
We're begging or we're sucking up, but always on our knees
I require your desire, your love is what I need
But I can't get enough, more than gluttony it's greed
Every person that I know, every atom that I see
The world is not enough for me
G R double E D for L O V E
The world is not enough for me

Don't tell me that I'm wrong, you said I had to dream
I grew up in the era of the digital screens
With digital means for networking the globe
I never feel private, why not try and take control
I do not live in fear, but with very high goals
I see everyone as perfect so I have to have their souls
I take them by them telling me they like me, that's it
Shouldn't this inflated ego pop soon? I'm a prick
I'm a dick, I'm a trick, I'm a mutherfucking monster and shit
I'm a jerk, I know, and you like to be called bitch
So the disses get a flip, and you think you're getting love
Thats fine hunny, 'till you get a bullet tip shoved
In your tummy tum tum, survive by any means
Me wanting all you love, see it's imbedded in my genes
But just because it's science dosn't mean it isn't real
I deal with what I hear and smell and taste and sense and feel
And I want it, I want it
I'm mystified by existence, and she flaunts it
We on it, we on it
We sell ourself till you've known it and you want it
And I want it

To me every vote counts, and I only hope to please
We're begging or we're sucking up, but always on our knees
I require your desire, your love is what I need
But I can't get enough, more than gluttony it's greed
Every person that I know, every atom that I see
The world is not enough for me
G R double E D for L O V E
The world is not enough for me
