lyrics

Lets be honest- we've got our delusions.
Fragmented, disjointed, tongue-tied with excuses
Someone else's life, their story their home,
Replicate their despair for lack of your own,
So rewire your heart just to keep it in time with false isolation, solace in shorter lines,
from the answers that haunt you to questions you never ask,
Go ahead, stay stupid, life is burning up fast,

Yeah I'm wired on no sleep and vague ideals,
And I won't be a victim now
Fuck playing victim

Your shock value is old, your self-centred voice,
Be brain dead or stand up - you're spoiled for choice,
In your easily-led drunken grandiose you are ripe for the picking by all we oppose,
Your selfish indifference is akin to hate,
As the camp expands I'll make a Vrber escape,
I may not stop all the trains or the death of these lands,
But with a twisted grin I will do what I can.

In these absurd days I look up to you,
In these violent times we won't live long enough to see them through,
But you then contort your face to make the mask of hate fit just fine,
It takes a life for some to learn that when you deal in oppression you are repaid in kind.
