The song is about the falsities of capitalism. But in our eyes, ‘capitalism’ is the extension of our human behaviors, of lust, jealousy, greed, and self fulfillment, in a market environment that, in most cases, have very little constraints. It is an amplification tool, in some cases. And as well, in many cases, shows the kind of evolutionary animals that we become, or desire to become.
In life, the ‘negatives’ lie in bed with the ‘positives’, all the time. Even when you are the most ultra-wealthy, there’s something in your life that gets under your skin. Vice versa, of course, it is the same scenario for an ultra-poor with definite difference in the ‘kind’ of daily problems.
The gaps in social and economic statuses around the world is wide and as deep as the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean.
But as the depths of the trench is deathly scary, the Oceans are as vital to all life-forms on Earth.
So, we live with this fact.
So, we live with ourselves – our limits – our deviance – our shortcomings.
Tread carefully, for life is full of land mines.
Tread delightfully, for life can be a good thing.
Start fresh. From where you are now.
