Take a look around
Open your eyes to your modern day
And tell me it's okay
Tell me it's okay


If you think the world outside
Is immortalized and all is fine
Take a look again
And get back to me


If you think 'cuz you're American
That you will automatically win
And that it's okay
Tell me it's okay


You're not in danger for your life
So you can hide, from the missiles going off outside
And it's all okay
Tell me it's okay when it's not


Break them down
Look behind the things that you've been thinking
Break them down
Time to see through fodder you've been eating
Break them down
If you give a damn about this world or your life
Then you will start to try


Can you negate, that someone hates
You based on your class, sex, preference, or your race
And that it's okay
Tell me it's okay when it's not


For the blood that spills on someone else's bill
That you've unknowingly signed your name
Tell me it's okay
Tell me it's okay when it's not


Ignorance is the hardly the way
Apathy's a masquerade


Break them down
Look behind the things that you've been speaking
Break them down
Time to see through prizes you've been seeking
Break them down
If you give a damn about this world or your life
Then you will start to try


With so much left to evolve
Transcendence seems far off
When we've hardly moved from A to Z
It's not impossible, even as hopeless we all make it seem
Let's end all this disconnection
Fast forward pseudo-progression
Believe we can find a way


Break them down
Time to bandage all the things you're breaking
Break them down
Time to give back for the things you've taken
Break them down
If you give a damn about this world or your life
Then you will start to try


It's a ticking bomb
So if you're thinking that you're gonna get away
With sitting on your ass
You've got another thing coming…
