View the world through a broken lens,
stick by grudges and never forgive.
Mind static distorts perceptions,
enabled self destruction.
What are the thoughts running through your mind,
life is easy and everything's fine.
Try to keep the path against the grain,
finding solace in something that will never change.
I want to set the world on fire,
but instead I sacrifice my desires,
to the ones that keep my pockets empty.
And I'm not moving.
At what point to we forget,
the ideas stuck in our head?
of conditioning and feeling regret.
23 years knowing the world isnt right,
but your family tells you thats just life.
Not my life.
Bound by the past, and doomed to repeat
lives dictated by memories.
Conscience weighed down by a hundred years,
the past and present ring in my ears.
We've been cursed by routines,
thinking how will we eat.
Cursed by past lives and monotony.
Seeking a way out but bound by the chains,
dead with a heartbeat, nothing will change.
Finding the way out begins with the knife,
six inches deeper will save your life.
Drain me of light.
Are you worth what you can sell?
Have you sold your soul to hell?
We waste half the time we're awake,
the other half too lethargic to live.
I don’t know the slogans,
Don’t shake my hand.
My allegiance doesn’t belong to man.
I want a breakup of rules and safety,
anything that gives us identity.
