Humanity is conformity
Conformity is society
Society is this reality

The faces that saw me
And the angles that warned me
They told me to run
And dispose of the gun
I could have escaped
Be gone with no trace
Instead I just stayed
Within societies gates

Cos I can run but I can’t hide
And I must justify
The way I live my life
Until the day I die
I live within these gates
I cannot go against
So I must see it through
There’s nothing left to do

They said I was crazy
And they called me a fool
But words cannot change me
And my respect for the rules
I may be part of the system
But if I could rule this land
The rules would be different
But I am just one man

So I wish I was under a tree
Far away from society
Where the only truth in me
Is the soothing sound of my own entity?
While my other voice is free
It expresses words of plea
To return to a stable form of reality
But I’m inside of that tree
That tree is inside of another tree
The perplexity is infinity
So I will just chill with a spliff

I can run but I can’t hide
