Oh this injustice
Unconsidered crime
Simple betrayals of the greatest kind

Why is it that you, that you told me
That all the things that I’d enjoy
Would only withhold me

(Here it goes…)

Keep on striving don’t you stop
Keep on climbing till the top
If you’re not swimming, then you’re sinking
There is not time for higher thinking

Prosper, Succeed, Conquer, Obtain
Accomplish, Produce, Become and Gain
Beauty, Health, Fortune and Fame
Cuz this will be the only way

Cuz there’s no concept of enough
We don’t care whose throat you cut
Keep on serving your plate’s not full
What are you doing resting fool?

I took it all as innate
And the expectations became ingrained
So it began to serve as my salvation
Therefore any moments rest
Was time not spent being the best

Suddenly all you taught me to achieve
Took over my life and got the best of me
Stuck obeying the cycle


But I’m not stupid
How long did you think you could hold me down?
But so much is clear and everything’s lucid
Now your fables, your fables, they mean shit to me now

Self-loathing and self-deprecating
Looking in the mirror incessantly hating
Everything I was and everything I wasn’t

I had done all you said to a tee
Still I couldn’t find a way to be happy
It wasn’t till the day I was met with the brunt
Of not earning what made my life significant

Suddenly all you promised became an illusion
And I found clinical depression in this confusion
I was driven insane


Supposed to
Have to
Need to
Me too
All the things that we will bleed through

Forward
Upward
Another mile
All you said would make us smile

Thrive
Acquire
Wretched liar
Wonder why we turn to ire?
Think you’ve got us by the balls
Think you’ve got us chained to walls?

I had to let it go
Cuz it was tearing at my soul

Obsessed questioning
Makes this beg for wreckoning
And I won’t hold this back for you
Cuz I will duke this out with you
Your fables that once frightened me
Now they have enlightened me
your ideologies
I know what to believe


Look who figured it out
Look who’s laughing now
