Based on Bhagavad Gita Chapter 16, Text 12

The Bhagavad-gita (16.7-20) describes the mentality of the godless materialists who ruin themselves and those around them by their inordinate infatuation with temporary things. Their tragic life-story can be summarized as cry, vie, lie, die, fie.

Cry: Being enslaved by their innumerable and insatiable self-centered desires, they live perpetually dissatisfied, forever craving, worrying and crying for more. (16.11-12)

Lie: Their uncontrollable and irresistible desires drag them into ignoble and immoral actions (16.12)

Vie: Their moral blindness makes them ruthlessly competitive and abusive towards whoever comes in their way, and they delight in scheming violence and even murder (16.13-15).

Die: All their materialistic scheming is abruptly terminated when they run full speed into the dead end of death. (16.11)
