More people

More people live
Near to the womb
Than live close to the edge
More people give
Thought to their doom
Than the taste of success
More people try
To live in gloom
Without any success
More people cry
Fear of the tomb
Than can welcome their deaths

More people live
Than ever have died
Yet still we do wrong
Trying to do right
Yes
More people live
Than ever have died
Yet still we believe
In sacrifice
