Lyrics

MATERIAL MADNESS

Music and Lyrics by
McKinley Williams

You can run with the seasons
but you cannot hide
from material madness
your life is on the line
You've danced with obsessions
you could not define
now material madness
has got you in a bind
my oh my

CHORUS:

Material madness...
a tragic twist in time
You can see it surround you
as dreams and hope
gets left behind
We talk of faith in humanity
but refuse to pay the bill
It's a zero sum reality
this icy world we're running to

There's a daily disaster
in these unstable times
With material madness
and the earth's resources in decline
Still we plunder what's left
and pay the debt no mind
with global avarice
and the blind leading the blind
one more time!

CHORUS:

Material madness...
a tragic twist in time
You can see it surround you
as dreams and hope
get left behind
We talk of faith in humanity
but refuse to pay the bill
It's a zero sum reality
this heartless world we're running to

Who can offer the reason
for this sad decline?
Material madness
in every culture throughout time
Like a beautiful rose
that gets ripped from the vine
Material madness
We're running out of time

CHORUS:

Material madness...
a tragic twist in time
You can see it surround you
as dreams and hope
get left behind
We talk of faith in humanity
but refuse to pay the bill
It's a zero sum reality
this heartless world we're running to

Look at the lost souls (repeat and adlib)
