You Don’t Have To Stay Addicted
We’re stuck like stones, under seas, each of us is a junkie
Fevers rolling over us, each wave, a snarling monkey
Overseers too, came in swarms, bearing crosses and disease
Those that saw riches, copious crops to seize
They brought cargo of entitlement, and seasick horses
They brought technology of glittering terror to fortify their forces
They brought new names for sacred space, they brought strange commands
They tracked, trapped and traded, inventing ownership of lands
What turns the Earth inside out is that beast on your back
Enslavement is bought repeatedly with sensory attack
The neurons in your brain snap on, dopamine flows in streams
Nicotine, sugar, shopping, …obsessions on glaring screens
Think. The Triangular Trade depends upon dependency
Tobacco. Sugar. Whiskey mash — all gave the West ascendency
If we cannot connect and overcome, we’ll continue to self-medicate,
Today’s slavery is insidious. Arise and activate.
See? The masters, have addictions — not least — to almighty buck
And this is our way, to flee or stray, escape. Get unstuck.
Wake. We’re addicted to toxic stuff, from fuel, to drugs, to food.
Wake. Release from ownership. Let the monkey be subdued.
