Deceitful lie
Alibis
Bullshit opportunist with a disregard for fall guys

No collar crime
Stolen design
Spineless snitch
You can’t see beyond your own eyes

Conceited time
Hoarding flies
You’re so vain
The shit on your nose worn with pride

Absent mind
Covert disguise
Shit shining timeserver
You’d fuck your own mother just to get a bit ahead of the calm

This separation
This disconnect
This is more than ignorance
This is more than disrespect
“If not for me who would it be?”

And still we close our eyes and drown ourselves in apathy
And still we cover our ears and pray to god to cure disease

Redefining what wealth is
Redesigning what success is
Who gives a fuck who you are?

    My InterpretationI think this song is about the effect of capitalism on humans, and how our society conditions people to think. How people are trained not to care and to just 'have faith and pray'

    For me, as a socialist, it is a very powerful song that speaks to me about the true effects of capitalism and our society today.
