We stand idly by, we turn a blinded eye
Our brains, they are so clean from repeated cycles in the spin machine
We march to the same beat on the same well-trodden street
Strangers to each other, but well-known to our big brother

Be listless, lose your aim; go sell your soul for fame
We've ways to measure success here and it has little to do with character
While some struggle to survive; a fight to stay alive
You're more concerned with celebrities than you are with your own family

It makes me sick - I want no part of it
Bring me back to Earth and start my heart again beating
I resign from the roll, forget everything I know
All the lies they told to me to keep me from screaming

Believe what they report; belittle them for sport
Entertainment for humor's sake, but do NOTHING to enact a change
We watch on the cold screen, decipher what this all means
Removed from our humanity and grasping at traces of sanity

It makes me sick - I want no part of it
Bring me down to Earth and start my heart again beating
I resign from the roll, forget everything I know
All the lies they told to me to keep me from screaming

It makes me sick: I've become the hypocrite
Reunite me with my soul and start my heart again beating
I quit the whole routine, this joyless monotony
A silenced, gaping orifice tries to keep from screaming, screaming, screaming, screaming!
