a web of debt we hope to spin
its silky surface tempts us in
and when built, we’re trapped and with no escape
we build our riches of despair and hate.

the banks they lend and the banks they take
with a mortgage on your life, you pay
crying: “let me spend all that i don’t have”
they let you spend much more than that.
