Presented like a product,
placed in a black box.
The promise of salvation,
is enough to make us watch.
There is no thought,
and there is no concern.
We can't retrace our steps,
across the bridges that we burn,
but we're content to be
getting what we're getting for free.
So we lock our chains,
and we throw away the key.
-But the free comes at a price,
that we'd rather not think about.
The free comes at a price,
we'd rather not think about.
Well we don't think much
about much these days,
so the chance of that happening,
quickly fades away,
into another haze of emotion,
another blur of product,
far from any pretense,
and removed from any context.
But nothing really seems
to be in context anymore.
We sold our integrity.
-And now we are the whores,
with our blue plastic checking cards,
and silicone implants.
Our pre-constructed world,
that has all us trapped.

[Chorus]
(and) All we are...
is a tool to be used to pay
for someone else's rent
a profit gain of 23%

(and) All we are...
Pieces of paper to be torn into shreds
a small piece of capital to be worked until our death


Salvation in consumption,
is an absurd way to live.
Products as religion,
is too much to give,
So we fill our lives with useless items
to make up for ourselves
And we fill our heads with excuses
to justify our wealth.
But the greed that fuels our consumption,
seems to be accepted,
and not just as a fault,
but as a trait to be respected.
How we got to this point,
is a question without answer.
We can blame it on TV,
but we set the standard
-All of this hypocrisy,
just leaves me more confused,
expecting something more
When I should just be amused
-At the pettiness, the irony,
the ignorance, and abuse.
The individual twines we braid,
into one collective noose
'Cause at the age of 24,
you can't expect me to accept
That the standards of humanity,
could possibly be less
All we ever wanted
was to be something more than this
All we ever wanted
was to be something more than this!

[Chorus]
