It's another day with a schedule And another million morons Do what they must I can't do it 'cause I hate it These flaccid dreams Job, spouse, kids, house All that's left is to die I can't live like this
Mirror Image 02:32
I look at you and I have to laugh You're not yourself, you're someone else I think of you and I shake my head Now you've just become what you once hated Why don't you wake up, wake up and look around you Before reality passes by and floats right past you I used to like you, back when you were yourself But now you're living your life trying to be someone else You hate them for the clothes they wear It's how you live, not how you dress Your false front is fading fast And just like them you can't confess What you gonna do, what you gonna do when you get older And your fake friendships start to die The truth is kinda funny when you think about it And your sorry past is hard to hide
Foul stereotypes, heroes and foes Degrade their gender, put on their shows It's time for us to let them use their heads Rob them of their senses, leave them in the dark False hope for a system that will leave it's mark Time now for the machine to give up fascism's legacies It's time for us to break their chains Creeping death & masquerades, join the legions of a corrupt crusade Ties to trivialities of lies and deceit until the walls crumble downward
Invisible 02:23
This is not self-glorifying This is not about conservative education This is not about uniform efficiency This is from the soul This is life and love, and health And the natural chaos around us Let me become invisible with the colours of the earth Fuck the coins that lead to pillows as you grow old and give in My tatters and scars are there from living, not glimpsing
We are your rulers You are our slave-bots We are your leaders You are our little droids You will do everything that we tell you Or else you'll die 'cause we are your saviours We are your government Go ahead resist us and you'll die We've got a name for you, it's the mega-dead You'll die for us 'cause that's what we said You are expendable Care nothing for your lives or for your families All we care for is our money Hide in our offices while you bleed And we'll give you a number When we need you, you'll come to your masters We are your rulers You are our slave-bots You will do what we say in order to get paid Do it for the money You will die working in a factory Can't you see, it's not a life worth living Living for the government But we do this everyday when we know that it's wrong
Myomniverse 01:03
By a brief moment, like a caption of a candle dripping wax I see the look, like a connection of realisation A single grain can mean as much as an omniverse As long as I can make the connection twice My flame still burns until I come to a conclusion, then it dies like day becomes night As if my hard breath of air was the west winds blowing, I smile with content; inspiration.
