You’re scared of going hungry

You harvest more than you grow

You think you need more things

These things, you buy, buy and throw out

You scared of earning less

Than your neighbor or your dad

You think you need more jewels

More jewels and gold to be glad

How much do you need?

Say, how much more?

How much do you need?

What’s all this for?

Help me to get this

You think you need more money

So you work day and night

You think you lack affection

You spread your love out

You think you need more space

So you got yourself a bigger home

You think you need more freedom

With freedom, you’ll end up alone

How much do you need?

Say, how much more?

How much do you need?

What’s all this for?

Help me to get this
