Into Piles

What in the world are we doing?
Who are we trying to beat?
It seems like we live our lives running,
as if we are losing our seats.

We never stop building up towers.
We never stop spinning around.
We never stop piling up into piles
everything that we’ve torn down.

Is it that we are pursuing
happiness, like the old phrase?
Or are we chasing the concept of such
blindly straight into the grave?

Somebody please in all honesty
look me right square in the eyes
and tell me the lifestyle we base it all on
won’t ultimately lead to demise.

It’s happened throughout all of history,
each nation eventually falls.
So, history repeats and we all lose our seats...
chasing happiness into the wall.
