+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ LYRICS For the first time in history we won't be better off than our parents We are the first generation that will not rise above the last But let's not mix things up, define the fruit from your labor You're taking quantity over quality, you're talking apples and oranges
Let's sort out means and ends Cooking and facebook friends Let's set this straight Wellbeing is the greatest good and wealth is just a gate
It's time, change the standard How can we measure life if we don't understand it
Change those birthday conversations, stop boasting your shallow success The red herring known as GDP is what you're gonna tell your kids?
It's time, change the standard
How can we measure life if we don't understand it It's time to change the standard How can we measure life if we don't understand and learn to set our priorities straight
If “more” equals “better” and if billions are the new millions, then we need a new “better”. What's most important in life? What does it all come down to? I'd say a nice mix of physical and mental health, the right people around you and some material stuff to maintain that situation. Isn't it weird then, that our wellbeing is being measured by economic standards, the GDP being the most well known? We're only looking at the means, not considering the ends. It's hard to quantify the level of “right people around you”, but we should be able to do better than the GDP. Maybe we can start to include indicators that bear in mind the condition of the societies we live in, the human, animal and environmental rights and the ever crucial veggietomeathamburgers ratio?
