​Consumer

This song is by Focused and appears on the album The Hope That Lies Within (1995).

We're all living in selfishness
And not caring about others lives
But we only want what we want
This greed right in front of our eyes

View our worth, is out of control
We see it and just keep taking
This world becomes more valuable than love

It haunts our world and we cover our eyes
We buy to our hearts content to fill a void
Now, I will relent, it won't go away, no, it won't go away
This image you want, it will take your life and you will pay

Our society teaches consumption is the only thing
Get rich quick scheme
Take the goods while they're cheap
Dwelling in a material world

We drown ourselves in growth and purchase these lies
It's in our greed, our greed right in front of our eyes
The media pushes beauty and sex as acceptance
To wear a mask or a condom and fool yourself

Buying into this growth, we kill the image
If this is how to be accepted? Then I will have no part

It haunts our world and we cover our eyes
We buy to our hearts content to fill this void, yeow
And I will relent, it won't go away, no, it won't go away
This image you want, it will take your life and with end, you will pay

We drown ourselves in growth and we purchase these lies
It's in our greed, our greed right in front of our eyes
This media pushes beauty and sex as acceptance
You wear a mask and a condom and fool yourself

It won't go away, no, it won't go away
This image you want, it will take your life and you will pay
And you will pay

Our seven seed is shot down, all this products and progress
We cover our eyes, try to ignore, it all falls away
We always seem to be just turning away and anticipate inside
The exactness or have the part

Our society teaches consumer consumption is the only thing
And get rich quick scheme is the only way
Take the goods while they're cheap and they keep selling and selling

Dwelling in a material world
We drown ourselves in this growth and we purchase these lies
It's in our greed, it's in this greed, right in front of our eyes

This media pushes beauty and sex as acceptance
We bore ourselves, five minutes growth, almost kill the image
Is this is how to be accepted? Then I will have no part
And this wealth can never be more valuable than love
