The Influence of Currency


Money, money, money.

Yeah, we all want a piece of it.

Hell, maybe not a piece, but a whole sack of it.

Once we have it, we’re probably contented… Probably.

But you see, that’s not the case,

‘Cause once we grasp it, things start to change.

We feel more powerful & in control.

We feel stronger than anyone & we’re invincible.

We feel higher than the average Joe.

We suddenly have the rights to discriminate John Doe.

We essentially become better than anyone else.

Unless they have a bigger pay-cheque & more furniture on their shelves.

We now have the audacity to mock people,

Just because they’re earning little.

We now think we’re cool & fancy.

Just because of our expensive clothes & jewelry

Oh man, look at what money has done.

It’s got all of us crazy, each & last one.

We now work for it like it’s a necessity.

Well, it’s a necessity due to its functionality.

That’s why we steal & kill for it.

That’s why we betray everyone for it.

Because of what money is for,

Some would willingly become a whore.

I don’t blame us for going to such length.

I understand its value & also its strength.

I know it has the power to change me & you,

But that’s something we shouldn’t let it do.

Unfortunately, that is what’s happening.

A paper, telling us what to do.

It’s a reality which is very disturbing.

A reality we can’t see ’cause we’re too busy to.

We’re too busy to notice

That it’s deforming our being.

It’s corrupting every ounce of our dignity.

It’s corroding every last inch of our humanity.
