about

Jenga Society
Drewett

I feel numb
if indeed I feel anything
I feel overcome
by a total lack of surprise
I walk with a gait
that is ignoring everyone
as people dash back and forth
in front of my eyes.
Well these streets are filled with and infectious rage
coming together to self-immolate
Everyone’s best interest has shot up in flames in an instant yeah.

Well now we have a problem
because society’s a shame
It’s been compromised by the ethos of
I shop therefore I am
and it is wrong
don’t you know that it’s wrong
oh yeah you know that it’s wrong
don’t you know that it’s wrong
Well cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching
cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching
cha-ching, cha-ching, Kujenga society.

I’m heading for home
I ignore the destruction
as I feel like the damage had already been done
The building blocks, of our humanity
Had been skilfully removed as the money ran out
Now our leaders live in Ivory towers
and use their statutory powers
to rob us of the wealth in our communities yeah

Well, the question is are we tottering, are we still waiting to fall
Does a final piece still need to go
Before they bury us all
And it is wrong
don’t you know that it’s wrong
oh yeah you know that it’s wrong
don’t you know that it’s wrong
Well cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching
cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching
cha-ching, cha-ching, Kujenga society.

Well cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching
cha-ching, cha-ching, ching ching
cha-ching, cha-ching, Kujenga society.
But it don’t look big to me
‘cos as far as I can see
we’re living in a Jenga, Jenga, Jenga , jenga, jenga society.
A Jenga society, Jenga society
