tell me can the hateful chain be broken
production and consumption define our hollow lives
avarice lead us across the ocean
toward a land that's better
much more bountiful and wide
when will mankind finally come to realize
his surfeit has become
how much is enough to kill yourself?
that quantity is known today
as we blow ourselves away
is there anything so sure?
rapacity, tenacity, capacity for more!
like a dog that feeds until he suffers
the infirmity of
is brought on by his selfish cure
