VERSE 1
Too busy for kindness
Hope keeps passing by
We’re justified by freedom
Too caught up in time
Trading off all values
Boost the bottom line
He can’t think of this y’all
Until he’s lost his mind

BRIDGE 1
Holding on to what’s here
Then told to trust ‘fear of losing’
But what’s owned
When the cost of one’s soul amounts to what wit i’m using
So what’s owed?
We’re under control pursuing some weird illusion
But what’s known?
We’re making these choices where lives are someone’s exclusion
And what we’re choosing means we’re all losing, we’re losing

Living just for having
Surviving on surviving
Just how much more do we need before we’re happy?
Will you stand for something?
Or keep chasing more?
Working just for living
Surviving while we’re thriving
Just how much more can they take before we’re happy?
If you don’t stand for something
Well then don’t put more for the less
It’s more stress for the rest of us

VERSE 2
Taking with no giving
Natural law defied
Conflicts orchestrated
Problem goes untried
He keeps craving power
They just want their pride
But neither one can have it
All part of the design
