Behind the iron curtain secret doors
lie broken and twisted ideals that litter from my floor
It's not that I don't hear you shouting in my head
It's just a noise that deadens me
Compounding my indifference

I need you now like I need a hole in my head
I'd give you my sympathy
But the space behind these black eyes is dead
It's not that I don't hear you screaming in my face
It's just a noise that deadens me
Compounding my indifference

Lay your head down
Lay your beautiful head down
Can the worm turn inside me like a wheel
and shut the door of my sensitivity to the way you feel?

I hate your country
I hate this new religion
I hate your politics
I hate your lack of kindness
I hate what you've become
And so it seems that green has become the new red
Void of all human empathy

My head tilts in mock fascination
As I pull the legs off this poor squirming creature
But I will grow and take my filth into an unsuspecting world

You can't tell me what to do
The school's no longer in control
The parents twitch like wrimp wristed puppets
You and your liberal ideas - what fools!
Just a rebel without a clue
