We're on a quick, sick rampage
Wining and dining
Drinking and driving
The Recklessness of the Upper Class
Since the Upper Class have a seemingly infinite amount of money, no rules, and no punishments, they can “rampage” on the world.
Like the wealthy in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, this crowd can get away with activities that would otherwise be inexcusable. Their constant partying conceals their true unhappiness because they live in a world without relationships or legitimate connections with other people. It’s about immediate gratification, fun, and constant first impressions.
They don’t have really any respect for life because there’s no reason to live it (“drinking and driving”).
