Epiphenomena

What to save and what to spend
Time and time and time again
Capital showing signs of growth 
While you and I wonder what we're worth

Oppression and depression are cause and effect
The same is true with greed and neglect
Indicators of a scope that's out of focus
But when blur's all you've known it's hard to notice

Manipulative monopolies and coercive cartels
Give out free information to promote what they sell
Until posters plaster every surface you see
And you're never quite sure just who you should be

See what face comes up when you flip a coin
Don't think about the disc on which they're joined
Does the subject or the object hold the value
Does illusion or reality guide you

What to save and what to spend
Time and time and time again
Capital showing signs of growth 
While you and I wonder what we're worth
