What happens when the wealth is gone, is spent
Because we all buy the wrong metaphors?
We give the world democracy through wars
And live it up on what the future's lent.
We try to make the world resemble us
And guiltily condemn ourselves for all
The things we never did. We want to fall
Together, throw our pasts under the bus.
We face the certainty all this will end --
The arrogance in us will soon collapse
So we can humbly face our ignorance.
The sudden social shift will surely send
Us into chaos. We'll redraw our maps,
And in our new society, we'll dance.
