Homo-Consumens Lyrics



Lyrics to Homo-Consumens
Homo-Consumens Video:
Obey the established
Born, consume and breed
Chained to a lifelong mortgage
Satisfy your material needs

Wish what you can't have
And don't need
Only to seem superior
To climb up the hierarchy

Null individuality
Stand out pretending to be…
Believe in a god or not
Born, consume and die

Aware of this cage
We live in
One more day
To avoid reality

Patterns were given
Take what you need
Shepherd of the system
For empty fulfillment

Living ostentation
How miserable do you feel?
Show thy life above
Your capacity.


"Modern society creates a type of man whom I have earlier called the homo consumens -- the consumer man whose main interest becomes, aside from working from nine to five, to consume”.
[Erich Fromm]
