Materialism is getting worse and worse
Seems to be our society that develops this curse.
Creating things in our lives that are unnecessary
Not buying the upgrades makes us real weary.
The newest version is old the very next day
What’s the point of getting it anyway?
This want to always be up-to-date
Has our priorities really up for debate.
With such high expectations people’s feelings get hurt
Little kids on the playground constantly needing to be alert
of what they wear, what the say, what they brag about next,
And makin’ sure your house guests don’t seem perplexed
About why you don’t have five sports cars in the driveway
And why your outfit is SO last May.
It’s amazing cause as the standards get higher and higher
I seem to slowly push away from this ludicrous desire
I don’t want no bells and whistles, just a real chill life
A small house, a couple kids and to be a good wife
No second wardrobe, second house or the newest iphone
Just appreciation for what I have and a real humble home.
