lyrics

Take the time that you’ve spent, thinking of the things that you possess.
Gather all that you can. Save, collect, you know what you still need.
Now we are what we own, philosophy has taken a backseat.
Gather all that you can. Save collect you know what you still need.

We’ve tried to, subscribe to a richer life.
We’ve tried to, subscribe to a richer life.

Take the time that you’ve spent, thinking of the things that you possess.
Gather all that you can. Save, collect, you know what you still need.
Now we are what we own, philosophy has taken a backseat.
Gather all that you can. Save collect you know what you still need.

All this pretense does not make sense.
(This is an obsession, fueled by foolish, young minds.
We’re learning a lesson, brought about by time.
This is an obsession, fueled by foolish, young minds.
We’re learning a lesson).

We spend all our money on things we don’t need,
Because it’s in fashion and we live through our greed.
Through all our pretensions, we cloak all our fears,
Using ostentation to impress our peers.
And yet we feel empty, why are we so glum?
And yet we feel empty, why are we so glum?
And yet we feel empty, why are we so glum?
And yet we feel empty.

Impressions, and all our values faked.
Assertions, we do not give we take.
And you’ll see that all our minds are closed.
Our whole lives, so easily disposed
Impressions, and all our values faked.
Assertions, we do not give we take.
And you’ll see that all our minds are closed.

Our whole lives, so easily disposed
Our whole lives, so easily disposed.
