Like a law of nature
The more time that passes
The more that red number grows
And as a result, the higher the ceiling goes
I’m told we must live in this skewed reality in order to maintain a standard of living
I’m starting to think that’s just the American mentality
Just look at our society
Pretending things are a necessity when in reality they are empty luxuries
Credit cards. Big houses. Fancy cars.
It allows for a façade
And we love to haphazardly take it on
I skim The Good Book for answers
The truth is
I can’t defend the way we live
I can’t defend the way I live
Why do I take more than I give?
Why do I crave more things?
Why do I always suffice the enemy and deprive morality?
It’s the shadow of greed
