To be honest, I'm not sure if there's much use writing this
I don't know what I expect to achieve
But at some point, we have to sit down as a species
And think long and hard about where we go next
How much grand posturing before we think maybe we need a change?
How many people die before we start acting our fucking age?
Do you really need to listen to me sing this shit in a song?
I can't be the only one who thinks society just got it wrong
Don't analyze it
Just be complicit
Don't overthink it
Jut be glad you're in it
Glad you're with it
Reap the benefits
Use the buzzwords, foxcus on the lower class
It's much easier to sell you something if you never ask
villify the social movements, mock their leaders, mock the poor
Make sure everybody knows which one of us you're working for
We're spiraling it seems
200 years of broken dreams
They came for you, they'll come for me
Wait and see
Your silence dooms the ones who lack
The ability to turn their backs
And I don't know
I don't know how you look in the mirror
