Committed to a life of slavery
in the factories
our own hands have built,
where we must work
twice the graft
before gaining the goods
we've already slogged to create.

To consume
all things material,
stand above
human compassion,
as we compete with our fellow man
in the bid for a stronger position.

In our ruthless
search for prosperity,
we become the tools
of our own oppression,
forming the backbone
of a society that thrives
on mass division.

From enslavement...
To obliteration...

    General Commentits basically about materialism and how people work long and hard and slave themsleves aways just to earn a higher place in society while pushing people aside *freinds and family* as you climb the ladder. and locking emotions away.
