I have really been enjoying the recent Delirious? release, "Kingdom of Comfort". Maybe enjoying is not quite the right word. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I have been convicted by their latest project, particularly by the title track, "Kingdom of Comfort"
"Save me, save me from the kingdom of comfort where I am king from my unhealthy lust of material things
I rob myself of innocence with the poison of indifference
I buy my stuff at any cost a couple of clicks and I pay the price cuz what I gain is someone else's loss
Save me, save me from the kingdom of comfort where I am king from my unhealthy lust of material things."
I wrote a while back of the disease of Affluenza that we in America tend to suffer from. Myself included. Read it here.
Just last night I found myself angry that I had inadvertently let my government issued TV Converter Box coupons expire. I missed the fact that they expire after 90 days. It was an $80 mistake. I was mad. I am ashamed! How could I possibly be mad about something like that when there is a Global Food Crisis taking place, that is right now plunging an additional 100 million people on every continent into hunger.
Save me, save me from the kingdom of comfort where I am king!
