We have been indoctrinated.
Taught to look away,
Spoon fed what we’ll think
then told what we will say.
“Let’s be friends, for we’re the same
-if you aren’t with us
then you are to blame.”
With one foot in the gutter
and a second in the grave.
Life’s a one trick pony
with two broken legs....
Society’s it’s own addiction
feelings matter more than facts.
No junkie wakes up the next day
and has leftover crack....
So painful when all all the good times
are reduced to memories....
the corruption is in our food and water
even in the air we breathe....
Indoctrinated?....when did it begin?
Stick and stones
May have built our homes
But fire will always burn them.
What’s that you say?
“These fuckers seem above the law?”
-Aside from weapons I can’t touch them at all?
....violence seems to be about the only way
that anybody makes any difference these days....
Keep your hands and feet
inside this ride
-Not A Written Rule-
....but it’s strongly implied.
Best drink this kool-aid
(it helps wash the mind)
Don’t look too deep
the truth is painful to find
You see - this black pill wins everytime....
So take your turn and get in line
Slave to the machine/Cog on the grind
Or you can swallow the pill/lose your soul
Once you taste this truth you can’t unknow....
....It takes a real fucked-up world to keep snatching defeat from the jaws of victory....
