Money's puppet

lyrics & music by Jessica Kutzscher

You can’t compare my life with yours
My life’s more exciting than yours
You get up early and work till late at night
Your job swallows you whole

You feel important, indispensable
And no one dares to disagree
Listen, don’t kill yourself just to make ends meet

I bet you just care about yourself
Everything you do, you do it well
You’re money’s puppet arrested in this world of consume
The more you win, the more you lose

Who knows how long we can stay here?
Maybe this is our last day
Why not enjoy what we’ve got?
Don’t feel guilty, don’t be afraid

Oh life’s too precious to waste
I hate this spoilt society
Money rules this satiated world
I’d rather beg than lose my identity

I bet you just care about yourself
Everything you do, you do it well
Genius is fine in this global jail
You’d commit suicide, if you failed
You’re money’s puppet arrested in this world of consume
The more you win, the more you lose
