There was a time when the mega-rich understood they had more than enough money to live privileged lives and still benefit society. They built hospitals, libraries, schools and better homes for their workforce. Vanity projects with a social conscience.


CH: I’ve got some spare change in my pocket
I’ve a mind to build myself a rocket
I’ve made too much cash to care for the human race
So I think I'll take a joyride into space

We are the kings of industry
I can have anything I see
There’s nothing on this earth that I
can’t buy that’s why I want the stars up in the sky

We’re in the club of billionaires
We insist you buy all our wares
We charge the earth and you all pay
Today that’s why this smile is wide upon my face

We are the captains of this ship
You don’t get lifeboats when it sinks
We tell our lies and spin our tricks
It’s economics to keep you at each other’s throats for profit

The Earth looks pretty way down there
So sorry you can’t breathe the air
We own the water and the land
It’s grand. One giant leap for me and my kind but not for man
