It’s Everywhere You Want To Be

Pave the world, wrap it in plastic
An entire nation living beyond its means
Slaves to product, serving its whims
We seem to dance and dance
But the strings encircle our necks
Macabre puppets, human marionettes
So slide the card, kick the chair
Maybe you can take it with you

    I would change the title — too similar to the taking back sunday album/song/lyric

    A sad, but realistic take on society. Very good.
