Paying the fees (revised)

I'm staying low
maintaining and yearning for peace,
in these empty streets
still complaining and burning my trees
paying the fees
dreaming of a moneyless Earth,
wishing for a simpler way of life,
for a state a mirth
to trigger a rebirth to see what this life
is worth without dependency on "wealth"
which causes us to forget
everything else even our health..

It's our obsession with money
which has us acting funny
and in the midst of this addiction
we face constant affliction
staying stressed
life's a mess..
so distracted
staying stuck in our minds
running amuck
continuously confined yet
we're awestruck by illusions
remaining blind..

Unlucky is mankind,
we can't unwind, never finding
what we search for
or fantasize endlessly,
we're stressful
and crawl on through this cesspool
that is civilization.
