You were conditioned from birth / A model citizen you are / Your hard working instilled values are going to get you far / Stepping over those in need / The problem here is big / Humanity fueled by greed and resembling pigs / Trying so hard in school / For something just out of reach / You'd sell your soul if you just could succeed / And I think / Are you wrong? / Product of the new century / You've known no other path so you hold tight and believe You're simply dying to compete / You won't ever admit defeat / We all need something to believe Abducted from the playground / Spewed into the real world / With no former experience just following the herd / You wear fake innocence / Along with all the rest / Your pecuniary values are all that we've got left

    General CommentIt means to me that there is hope, there is a great awakening appearing in the world. i can see it thru the known speaker, and it makes me wonder of all the unknown thinker... we really are on our way for a great world, in peace, justice, living into a universsal truth :o)
    Because it is as we realize that we are on a path made on unworth ideas such as being better than other humans, succeeding at school... it is never going to make me feel in peace with me... but wizely, we can see that it's nobody's fault if it is like it is, this dark time that we are facing now, as we ignore some people needs, letting them poorand using them too... it's part of uor evolution, us, humanity, and the more we are wanting, and thinking that it can be an other way, with other value, the more it becomes possible, the more we get closer to our own utopia,, the reality that evolution tend to.
