How much are you worth?

Faceless men and countless women

Strive for a piece of the action.

Dead inside and unforgiven

Consumers of capitalism.

 

'How do you do?' becomes 'What do you do?'

Humans now valued in salaries.

Property ladders and snake-like gurus

Charm like Parisian galleries.

 

Self-made men and silicone women

Parade their acclaim and their status.

The world we have chosen is hollow and frozen

No wonder our children will hate us.
