You think it is so real
As you hold it in your hand
That little weekly paycheck
That helps to live within this land

But it is just illusion
To fill your pretty head
Helps to make you feel safe
As you lie sleeping in your bed

But, as you lie there dreaming
You cannot understand
Why it is you no longer see
The moonshine upon the land

Its only for this reason
Corruption and Holy Greed
Have stolen the soul af man
And brought forth poisened seed

Like a broken glass
You hold within your hands
Filled to the top, so caustic
Love of money ~ poisens love of land

These corporate halls you wander
Lost and empty day to day
You cannot seem to remember
How, as a child, you once did play

And so the story goes
As fumes float down the halls
Each and every one bows down
To the plaques upon the walls

They cannot fathom moonlight
Shinning upon bright blue sea
They cannot imagine playtime
Essential for you and me

Bow to this corporate god
Give all your loyalties
Pay not attention
To you family needs

Lost in a stupor
Families die one by one
Children in the streets
Holding, instead of faith ~ a gun

And on and on it goes
With none to stop and ask
What exactly is the reason
We all hide behind this mask?
~Tammera
