They’ve sold you the dream
At a price of minimal cost
What does it really matter
About the soul that you’ve lost.
Oh, they’re master sellers to be sure
The best that’s ever been
They’ve got the smoothest little technique
That border jumps the truly obscene.
You see, what they sold you
Is the biggest lie ever told
On a worldwide scale of epic measure
What could possibly be more bold?
It was the perfect dream, wasn’t it?
No consequences, no downside of any kind
They told you to open your wallet
And shut off your questioning mind.
Which is what you did, wasn’t it?
You questioned nothing along the way
You smiled stupidly and nodded your head
You had nothing intelligent to say.
You bought all of the pretty toys
That they waved in front of you
Your lust for all things possessions
Just grows and grows and grows.
Deep down, you knew it wasn’t right
But you’re too weak to be brave
You couldn’t give it up for anything
Not even if it means an early grave.
This is what’s going to happen, you see
You can’t stop it with lies, denials, and delusions
This way of living without a high price
Has been the greatest of all human illusions.
So, grab up all of your worldly idols
And hold them with pride and distinction
They’ll all mean so much in the end
When the time comes of the great extinction.
