Is This Not Enough?

Don’t you want to ask these people who take so much from us; don’t you want to ask yourself? Why do you need so much?

Is this not enough
This blessed sip of life?
Is it not enough
Staring down at the ground?
Oh, then complain and pray for more from above
Ya greedy, little pig

—Dave Matthews, Pig, Before These Crowded Streets
