Priority Disorder

Keeping up with the Joneses
Tit for tat
Caught up in competition
"You got this? I'll get that"

Let me 1up you
Everything an attack
"Whatever you do,
I have to fight back"

Destroying ourselves
Breaking up our homes
Pride over love
Ending up alone

The things that define us
Are the things that we own
The the things that we've done
And the things that we've shown

Driven by jealousy
Feeding our greed
Filled with envy
Eyes glow green

Superficial materialism
Behavior obscene
Prioritizing what we want
Above what we need

Green With Envy

Keeping up with the "Joneses" leads nowhere-
You discover quickly that Life isn't fair!
Be content with the Life that is your own...
If you have what you need you shouldn't bemoan-
Not everyone can be a millionaire!

Addiction

Addiction

What is my purpose
I am a person of value
yet I'm so worthless
Keeping up with the Joneses
is it really all worth it?
I don't think so!
Everyday is the same
I know I shouldn't complain
I have nothing and no one
and no one to blame 
but myself!
Honestly, I'm tired of it
of always being alone
seems nothing makes me happy
My only solice is in a bag
or wrapped in plastic
How pathetic!
I guess you could say
this is the life of an addict
this is my life and I'm an addict
Addiction is something that 
just happens,
no one ever really plans it
Please forgive me!

Crooked crooks, babbling brook

In this crooked chair i sit
at this crooked table
at this crooked desk
and write my crooked thoughts
looking out the crooked window
out onto the crooked crooked street
thinking about how crooked the world is
when suddleny is top and realise
the crooked people arent crooks
everything is crooked
crooked jails
crooked hospitlas
crooked business men lawyers and politiicians
crooked churches crooked steeples
crooked believers crooked people

it was perfect perfect and crooked
crookedly perfect
perfect people
perfect houses
perfect airplanes
and perfect yachts
perfect make me sick 
keeping up with the joneses
perfect white teeth
perfect bodies
perfect hair
perfect health
thwey werent crooked?
were they?

croooked like me?
crooked like them crooked in a world full of rooked people and the crookedest 
thing to do was to stand straight
and make a show of it!!

whose going to replace all of this crooked ness and turn this beautiful now?

UNIQUE

I met a young woman, she was unique but found it a bit hard to speak.

She said,  because people think she's a freak, she had no support from her friends, they were too busy calling her a geek.

She was so tired of her life being critiqued, it was making her weak and life to her was looking pretty bleak.

Well, your life is yours, you don't have to sneak, at your life just take a peek, when they look at you they see mystique and you are more precious than the most valuable antique.

Where as keeping up with the Joneses is what they seek, only havoc on their lives is what this will wreak, for what they think they see is really oblique which is why they keep finding themselves up a creek.

Again, your life is yours, you were made unique you just need to spend time developing your technique and please, don't freak when you go on your winning streak and become chic.

Be Unique, Devolope Your Own Technique.

A no answer machine

A no answer machine


Our basic instincts are to find love and run through the woods.
From the tree’s we climb down to walk like a man;
No longer on all fours.
Now we do not need to give thanks, for the food we have;
We deserve to be full.
All beautiful art fades eventually,
As we all become too dull.
	

No more to say…
I let it all just slide away.
Nothing will be relevant on the final day.
Keeping up with the Joneses;
Mobile phones are diseases.
Conversation is dead;
Only speak if it pleases.


Couple’s councilor, I could not manage to go.
So come or go, or let me go, if you think that I would care.
Love is not amazing anymore,
I would say it is just so, so.
Why would I bother speaking to you, when you are no longer there?


Phone on silent;
She is a no answer machine.
No reply necessary;
The end of the dream.
