lyrics

You go to work at six in the morning.
You hardly see the sun.
You spend your day locked away,
staring at your watch.
You need this job to provide you
with a life that is so pristine.
You know you’d be happier working less
but your used to nice things.

Well, I don’t see how you could need
all of the shit stacked up inside your room.
Could it be that your self esteem
is wrapped up in recognition of fortune?
How is that enough for you?

It seems to me that
we’d be more fulfilled
If we knew we were contributing
to the collective good of the ant hill.
It’s in our nature to want to labor
to help our colony survive.
And every flavor is doubly savored
when a meal is shared amongst the tribe.

And that is why...

I don’t see how you could need
all of the shit stacked up inside your room.
Could it be that your self esteem
is wrapped up in recognition of fortune?
Watch your wealth as it piles high
above the people starving on the street.
You could feed every hungry child
if you could just give up what you don’t need.
Fight the urge to live like a king.

For every pair of new shoes
stand directly on
the neck of someone under you.
Every king needs his pawns.
So though it’s not wrong
to want...
Every pair of new shoes
stand directly on
the neck of someone under you.
Every king needs his pawns.
So though it’s not wrong
to want...

Watch your wealth as it piles high
above people starving on the street.
You could feed every hungry child
if you could just give up what you don’t need.
Your fancy cars.
Your diamond rings.
Just give up what you don’t need.
Fight the urge to live like a king.
