Excessive Individualism Is Killing America

We live alone and die alone

Reaching for moola

More and more

Moola

 

It’s so

Overwhelming

I don’t know what to do

Let’s bury our heads

In the sand again

 

You hide from me

I run from you

 

We all live in castles

On our own plots of land

Forever stretching liberty

With no guiding plans

 

Social ills still growing

Isolation can’t always be blamed

Cause’ we’ve got new machines

To keep us all entertained

Entertained

 

You hide from me

I run from you

 

Driving cars across the states

Moving from house to house

Sorta like traveling salesmen

Always changing routes

 

I’m not sure what is stable

It’s not something I see

It might be nice

To recognize

Our human family

 

Human family

The whole race is one family

 

Sure

Many out there

Are generous when it counts

But I was

Hoping to share a life

Not just get helped out
