just like they wanted, there's no feeling coming over me
just like they taught you since you learned how to crawl
and though i always tried to never point a finger,
this town is forcing my own hand.
with my back to the wall
i see these kids who want a head-start in the rat race
lay down a couple grand to say they've been to school
where they find sex and drugs and hierarchy and alcohol
and no education. and they step right into the role.
shall i go on?
shall i go on into the night with nothing left to scream, or fight
because it knows me all too well?
i think about my neighbor, how he used to come over here
play video games and listen to pearl jam's "ten"
ten years later he's in the army and he's over there
he came back alive but days are black they sent him oceans away again
i'm old enough to know the pain is just politicized,
that's all it ever is to those that want control
we're just the eggs that they keep breaking for their omelettes
and then they swallow it down into a bottomless hole
shall i go on?
shall i go on into that night with nothing left to scream, or fight
because i know it all too well?
i know that place inside that rolls it's eyes and heard it all before
right now it needs to hear it even more until we find a cure
for that place inside that says with a sigh, "it'll always be this way."
right now we need to hold it to the flames, because we're all to blame
for that space inside that sets its sights on someone else's goals
right now we need a brand new set of rules found deep inside the soul
of that place inside that wants a life and can't take it anymore
right now we need it like we never have before.
