What I can't live without

Money and Greed,
Things people think they need,
But when you're all alone,
And it's you and the reflecting sea,
You're lost because of the mindset,
That lingers like the pollen that causes you to sneeze,
But me,
I can't live without self happiness,
I can't live without knowing I can prosper and learn from the nastiness,
Of a world that's dead set on schadenfreude,
And lives for the oppression of loss and booze,
This world is based on wants but never on needs,
We're planting all these drills but never planting the seeds,
We're killing our land, and for what,
Paper trees?
Cause the way I see it happiness is all that I need.
