Fenced in like cattle
Made to graze on each others hearts
My world fake enough to part
Forced fed that we were dead
Before you pulled us from our early graves
You'd bet your soul

No one
Snapped to the weight of this
You'll know
What the weight of instruction is

Is this too much for you to take?
All this disappointment?
Well, I'm a lot like you
Where's your stature
And your valor
While you kill your children
Line them up by their bedsides
By their bedsides

No one
Snapped to the weight of this
You'll know
What the weight of instruction is

Intensely
Dream of new things
Far away from you
And your curse

You'll fade out
Lonely
You'll fade out
Lonely, lonely

You'll fade out
Lonely
You'll fade out
Lonely, lonely

I guess I will go where you want
I guess I'm a taste of your words
Your children are losing their faith
I guess I'm a taste of your..

Force fed that we were dead
Long before you pulled us from our early graves
You bet your soul
Wear your stature
And your value
While you kill your children
Line them up by their bedsides
By their bedsides you'll die

No
We'll leave you nothing
Watch the words you say around me
Falling away
We'll leave you nothing
Watch the words you say around me
Falling away

No one
Snapped to the weight of this
You'll know
What the weight of instruction is

I guess I will go where you want
I guess I'm a taste of your words
Your children are losing their faith
I guess I'm a taste of your words

    General CommentI think this is about how we teach each new generation to be capitalist predators. BUT again, that's just my interpretation. :)
