LYRICS:
Imbalance
Adaptation
Equilibrium
Repeat

Always chasing
Never ending
Hedonic treadmill
Full of deceit

Always dreaming of obtaining something you desire
It doesn’t matter how hard you try because the feeling you get will be what you had prior
Oh, right back to square one
It’s a trap that swallows us whole
Although we might think we’ve won
Hedonic treadmill devours us all

I am the king of my own suffering
I do this to myself
In time I’ll come to realize
The constant chasing leaves me empty inside

Imbalance
Adaptation
(Always chasing)
Equilibrium
Repeat
(Never ending)
Hedonic treadmill swallows us

All you can do is try to catch the high
That keeps getting further away
In time you’ll come to realize
The constant chasing leaves you empty inside

Imbalance
Adaptation
(Always chasing)
Equilibrium
Repeat
(Never ending)
Hedonic treadmill consumes us all

Overstimulated for a moment then we’re doomed
'Cause we’re desensitized by all the fucking shit that we consume
And it’s a problem but not one that we’ll be able to solve soon
Not even after we are in our tombs

I have bouts of pleasure and joy but they are short-lived
Momentary sense of fulfillment but then it’s gone and expectations rise again
And then I’m back to where I

Started at the bottom tried to rise to the top
But nothing changed and I realized that I had to stop
Because I burnt myself out and I thought I would drop
Hedonic treadmill won again so I had to step off

You started at the bottom tried to rise to the top
But nothing changed and you realized that you had to stop
Because you burnt yourself out and you thought you would drop
Hedonic treadmill won again so you had to step off
