We spend our time chasing money,
And all that money can buy us;
By their trinkets do we define,
Value the worth of those around us!
We spend our time chasing degrees,
That confers on us validation,
By those whom we seek to impress;
Knowledge is not a consideration!
We spend our time praising freedom,
And all that lip service entails;
While imprisoned by the baubles,
That keep us captive and enthralled!
We spend our time on our gadgets,
Whose feed is controlled by someone else;
We feed our brains with all that junk,
Which is designed to keep us entrapped!
We spend our days, our entire lives,
In this state, hypnotised, held in thrall;
A collective brain controls our fates,
And that brain is certainly not ours!
What we focus on is religion;
What we pray to are our Gods;
What we chase all our lives we become;
Man makes his Gods, and they in turn make Him!
