I Am Thankful

I am thankful for my job
I am thankful for my benefits
I am thankful for a warm house
I am thankful for a car
I am thankful for my wife
I am thankful for my kids

I am thankful for all the food here 
On this table
At Thanksgiving time
Thank you, God
I am thankful
I am thankful
I am thankful
I am thankful

Here I am saying I am thankful
And everybody on my Facebook is saying the same, ‘I am so thankful’
And I’m kind of joining the crowd
Because I want to be positive-thinking like everyone else
And I would look ungrateful
And negative
If I talked about my dissatisfaction in life

But I’m dissatisfied
There, that feels so much better

All these people saying they are thankful
Are like under a spell
“Be thankful, be satisfied
Don’t strive for anything more
Be complacent
Be passive
Be dead, you zombies!”

Fuck it
I am not thankful
I am dissatisfied with my boring-ass secure life
Satisfaction is death
I want to strive for something better
I want to stay alive
