  • How we spend our days is how we spend our lives,

  • and we all spend it spending. We live to consume, we consume to live,

  • and our desire for more is unending.

  • Whenever I get paid, I just can’t wait to spend it,

  • it disappears so quickly and I’m left to mend it,

  • I pretend it will all be okay, to give a week’s wages away in one day.

  • But we try our best, still money seems to go,

  • weve been told many times that money doesn’t grow on trees,

  • But it’s a disease, the elephant in the room,

  • it’s the big bad wolf that’s making us consume.

  • They get more money, if were regular buyers, so they manipulate our needs,

  • and twist our desires. They are liars, a shady institution,

  • where they create a problem and sell us a solution.

  • They will use fear, so we buy things we don’t need,

  • say youre dying, youre ugly, it’s all out of greed.

  • They mislead, make you buy things that wont last,

  • planned obsolescence should be a thing of the past.

  • Theyll do anything to trick us, try and take our money captive.

  • Sell us happiness and sex appeal, and ways to be attractive,

  • so we go out and buy it, and fill our lives with clutter

  • only we still feel the same, but with money in the gutter.

  • It’s a cycle, of perpetual spending, a disposable culture with no sign of ending.

  • Were pretending like theyre our own choices

  • and ignoring the fact that we can hear voices in our heads.

  • It’s Consumerism, banging at our door. Saying our lives should be better, that we

  • should have more.

  • But were just as bad, we shouldn’t pass blame,

  • were all part of the same money game, But theyre winning, and we always lose,

  • were giving them our money because we join the queues

  • of people, all keeping up with the Joneses, buying the latest and the newest, but what

  • no one shows is it’s difficult to make ends meet,

  • when all these temptations are thrown at our feet.

  • But I have a solution, which youre welcome to ditch,

  • it’s hard but it’s worth it, Spend LessLive Rich.

  • As simple as that, just tune out the noise, Take in what you have and appreciate the joys

  • of living, without being told what to buy, or else youll always want more, until the

  • day that you die.

  • It’s a struggle, living day to day, trying to stay afloat when your worries weigh

  • you down. Youre in your overdraft, you have been

  • for years, Everything you own is being paid in arrears.

  • And it’s tough, you don’t know what to do,

  • you cant control your money when money controls you.

  • You need help, but you have too much pride, youve used up all your credit and your

  • cards have been denied.

  • You could get a loan, but that’s not the way to wealth,

  • when you borrow money, you rob your future self.

  • Ask for help, think ahead, no one wants this stress,

  • you may need money now but later youll have less.

  • What you earn doesn’t matter, only what you save,

  • you can spend what you have, but don’t be a slave

  • to the system, they will find a new way, to numb the pain that you feel when it comes

  • time to pay.

  • We had cash and cheque, then onto chip and pin,

  • now you keep hold of your card when you buy anything.

  • You don’t feel it, when your funds go in a flash,

  • just try and go a week where you only pay cash.

  • Then you will notice, as your stash runs low, the wage you work hard for, how you just let

  • it go.

  • Think of those in the world without shirts on their back,

  • when you see clothes in your closet that are still in their pack.

  • Realise you have what you need, when your money runs low,

  • And the voices on the TV start telling you to throw,

  • Things away, to buy the new version. They only want your cash; they don’t care

  • about the person.

  • So take control of your money, and take control of your lives,

  • saving money isn’t boring when you start to realise

  • what it stands for, the choices and the freedom, the security of those pennies in the times

  • that you need them.

  • You see true wealth isn’t in the numbers to you name,

  • It’s in knowledge itself, and the experiences you gain,

  • It’s about the priceless, and the things you cant buy,

  • Like memories, and loved ones, and feeling that high

  • When you realise, that life’s full of free gifts,

  • When you live in the moment, and forget that money exists.

  • Now, I am not saying don't spend your money,

  • It's yours to do and do as you will.

  • But saving is rewarding, without giving your future self the bill

  • So spend less, live rich. Don't be defined by what you own

  • Make your life more memorable. They're queuing days for a phone.

How we spend our days is how we spend our lives,
