Domesticated Debt

Living good in a certain way
Never show your real cards
So the naysayers can never say

Living a little less now than earlier before
People start to notice a change of pace
Eating crumbs off a delinquent floor

Living bad now and off the taxpayer's dime
Bills formed a mountain of domestic debt
Materials own your freedom and kidnapped your time
