​Puritan

This song is by Wait In Vain.

Imprisoned by desires, shackled to possessions
What can't be lived without will leave us without
We aspire to the standards set by the elite

Temporary happiness for our permanent toil
Poisoning and burning the fire that has been set and there's no way out

Progress, erect, despoil
Build a better tomorrow and destroy today
Indulge, devour, waste
We'll take and take until there's nothing left
Tomorrow abandoned for the needs of today

As luxuries that promise freedom choke our lives and become our oppressors
We get caught in a cycle where having more is valued over being more
Tell ourselves we are nothing when we have nothing
Take all that we can, knock down all in our way and continue to

Progress, erect, despoil
Build a better tomorrow and destroy today
Indulge, devour, waste
We'll take and take until there's nothing left
Tomorrow abandoned for the needs of today

Man will conquer new lands and take all that he can
Harvesting indigenous lands to give into today demands that he feels are his birthrights
Survival of the fittest Will serve as an anchor that will drag us to the bottom
Signs of a world collapse ignored
We continue to consume
Until we are consumed
