I have a t-shirt made in Australia
The word decadent is written across the front
I like to wear it because it reminds me
That the way we live in this country is

Decadence everywhere I look I see
Decadence just take one good look at me
Who’s working hard behind the scenes
So you can be so I can be
Decadent in this land of decadence?

I have a suspicion that in China
And places like that life is not so easy going there
I hear the work is duller
The factories hotter
The hours longer
And the pay they say does not compare to our


Well I’m not saying you should take a vow of poverty
I’m just suggesting that you think before you buy
Cause when that trumpet sounds and we line up before our maker
How you gonna look your Chinese factory brother in the eye?

In your decadence…
