Drop courage every time I grab for me.
Stomach gods rumble and growl.
Slave to hunger, bind the free.
And At the center of it all
a malnourished juvenile psyche crawl.

Another and another and another
One for myself, one from my brother

Codify this want and go forth in stride
Break with decorum, stuffed and fried.
La la la la all the while, We lied.

Take and gather and pull it close
Keep stomping, grabbing, and take
Look how fast it goes.
And At the center of it all
a malnourished juvenile psyche crawl.

Give it up, force it, no matter the cost
Push it further, keep going we ain’t lost
Your own enemy, double crossed.

More than we can enjoy in three lifetimes
still feeling poor and committing crimes
Against humanity, hear them chimes?
And At the center of it all
a malnourished juvenile psyche crawl.

Another and another and another
One for myself, one from my brother

Codify this want and go forth in stride
Break with decorum, stuffed and fried.
La la la la all the while, We lied.

Primal thirst takes the day
Primitive lust powered sway
Careless want and play
Humanity’s commodified way
Conscience collapsed, all feels fray.

Let’s buy in bulk and then eat some more.
Carry every damn thing out the door.
And at the center of it all
a malnourished juvenile psyche crawl.

Codify this want and go forth in stride
Break with decorum, stuffed and fried.
La la la la all the while, We lied.
