We're faded reflections of the perfect life,
Defining our lives by what we buy
Our humanity's at stake with each purchase that we make
It's obvious that we don't care who we forsake
Is nothing too sacred? Is everything for sale?
I'm trying not to let it get to me
I'm resigned to find why our lives are in decline
We'll be strangled by the goods on which we rely
It's contagious--The sickness that is spreading
Why do we seem to be forgetting everything but blind desire?
It's contagious--The lifestyle that's displayed
I'm continually amazed how out of touch we are.
