Choral piece, what happens when you take the path of greed.


Higher than the Angels
Written by Krysti Subieta and James Gibson

Two roads diverge on the path we follow
A choice of winding dirt or the highway
To the right there are no walls in sight
And to the left there gleams a golden city

If everyone is in it for themselves
We need to be as well, so

We take the path
With greatest wear
As it seems to have the better claim
The path with promise of billionaire
A life free of longing and despair
Over time we climb to our castles in the sky

Voices sing a chorus
It's echoing below us
We may try to tune them out
but so many voices cry and shout
“You’re higher than the angels will fly!
Your're higher than the angels will fly!
So who is gonna save you now?
From the loneliness inside you?”

Your friends are all fake
They will use you till you make a mistake
and they will laugh as they watch you fall
When you’re above them all
who is gonna catch you?

The path leads us on
It seems the best choice
Until the oppressed emerge to fight
Only then will a desperate voice scream out to mourn not to rejoice
Who must die before the greed accepts the blame?
I said who must die before the greed accepts the blame?
