Barely any virtue left in this city of vice,

its grip all consuming, traps us like mice.

 

People scurry by day and by night;

rushing along, just hurry, take flight.

 

No time to pause for then we may think -

that our lives are so empty, just bottomless pits.

 

So by night lets escape, lets run from the terror.

Consume all intoxicants that money can buy,

legal, illegal, well – no one really minds.

 

And all to just dumb down the endless pain,

for no one is really happy in this mindless game.

 

Elites hide away in their ivory towers,

look down at the ‘plebs’ to them we must cower.

 

Onward and onward the city consumes,

wealth, lives and our souls too.

 

But look closely, deep into the eyes.

Maybe you’ll see what I see:

there’s no happiness in so many lives.
