Feeding Frenzy
Lyrics
Escape the outside world
And its harshness
Surrounded by nice things
That can't love us

There's something new this year
That we'll adore
Enlightenment attained
Once we own more

The feeding frenzy
Come and join the queue
Consumer culture
Leaves us all consumed

In search of self-worth from
Our possessions
We crave to medicate
Our condition

The feeding frenzy
Come and join the queue
Consumer culture
Leaves us all consumed

And who do we fool
Surely no one but ourselves
The spending stampedes
A signal that we need help

Our wants are redefined
So we need them
The shopping mall the shrine
Of our religion

The feeding frenzy
Come and join the queue
Consumer culture
Leaves us all consumed
The feeding frenzy
Come and join the queue
Consumer culture
Leaves us all consumed

Spent too soon
Spent too soon
