1-5-13 Society and Greed

So much of our life is made up of wanting.
Coveting. Wishing. Hoping. 
Never being happy with what we have.
Filling our sadnesses with material items.
Buying our own and each others love. 
Sometimes nothing is everything.
And everything is nothing.

It’s a mystery to me
We have a greed with which we have agreed
And you think you have to want more than you need
Until you have it all, you won’t be free

Society, you’re a crazy breed
I hope you’re not lonely without me

When you want more than you have, you think you need
And when you think more than you want, your thoughts begin to bleed
I think I need to find a bigger place
Cause when you have more than you think, you need more space

Society, you’re a crazy breed
I hope you’re not lonely without me
Society, crazy indeed
Hope you’re not lonely without me

There’s those thinking more or less, less is more
But if less is more, how you keepin score?
Means for every point you make your level drops
Kinda like you’re startin’ from the top
And you can’t do that

Society, you’re a crazy breed
I hope you’re not lonely without me
Society, crazy indeed
I hope you’re not lonely without me 
Society, have mercy on me
I hope you’re not angry if I disagree
Society, you’re crazy indeed
I hope you’re not lonely without me

  1. Nice song. All this unmindful consumption to feed negative feelings. May we all find our open, compassionate hearts filled with our own love. ps I posted a song also, about feeling safe with others:)
