Because You're Worthless

We live in a climate of greed
We live under the clouds of envy
We live in the shadow of the pricing gun
All around us actors and models order us to buy this
and live like that
They remind us that if we don't possess more our lives
are empty
That we are basically worthless beyond the value of
the numbers in our bank accounts
That we are here just to accumulate
That the purpose of our very existence is to consume
Possess and consume, possess and consume, possess and
consume
The silent, hypnotic corporate mantra
That is the soundtrack to our frustrated and obsessive
lives
We live in a climate of greed
We live under the clouds of envy
Our lives are governed by jealousy, ruled by anxiety
Always wanting more, never being satisfied
If we could just own that bathroom our lives would be
perfect
If I just had that car everything would be ok
If we could just possess that dress the numbing,
gnawing emptiness
That reminds us of the utter pointlessness of life
would go away
A life sentence of consumer addictions, shackled to
the ruthless, irresponsible whims of advertising
executives
Dragged along in their relentless personal slipstream
Their desire for us to own more and yet more shit
Piling up mountains of possessions, fields of crap

(We live in a climate of greed
We live under the clouds of envy
We live in the shadow of the pricing gun
All around us actors and models order us to buy this

They remind us that if we don't possess more our lives
are empty
That we are basically worthless beyond the value of
the numbers in our bank accounts
That we are here just to accumulate
That the purpose of our very existence is to consume
Possess and consume, possess and consume, possess and
consume
The silent, hypnotic corporate mantra
That is the soundtrack to our frustrated and obsessive
lives
We live in a climate of greed
We live under the clouds of envy
Our lives are governed by jealousy, ruled by anxiety
Always wanting more, never being satisfied

Possess and consume
