All you've ever known

A little boy can't sleep
His eyes are turning red
He's scared of the monsters under his bed (Monsters)
What this child doesn't realize is those monsters are just fantasy
The real monsters are you and me

You're told you're good when you act with manners, but your Ps and Qs don't help world issues
You're told you're good when you act with manners
You wanna be good?
Do a thing that matters!

When you're born to a cult, you don't know you're in one
It's not your fault
It's all you've ever known (All you've ever known)
All you've ever known
When you're born into a cult, you don't know you're in one
It's not your fault
It's all you've ever known (All you've ever known)
All you've ever known

A little girl is dressing her cat in lace
She puts Mother's makeup onto his face
She never hurts an animal
She'd never dream of that
But what she doesn't realize
Is that makeup's tainted with lies
It's been rubbed before into innocent animals' eyes

You're told you're good when you act with manners, but your Ps and Qs don't help world issues
You're told you're good when you act with manners
You wanna be good?
Do a thing that matters!

When you're born to a cult, you don't know you're in one
It's not your fault
It's all you've ever known (All you've ever known)
All you've ever known
When you're born into a cult, you don't know you're in one
It's not your fault
It's all you've ever known (All you've ever known)
All you've ever known

We grow up so trusting, like the animals we pet
We grow up so ignorant
But these lies we must forget
Even the most bizarre will seem normal to you
If it's all you've ever known
All you've ever known

You're told you're good when you act with manners
What really makes you good is when ya do a thing that matters!

When you're born to a cult, you don't know you're in one
It's not your fault
It's all you've ever known (All you've ever known)
All you've ever known
When you're born into a cult, you don't know you're in one
It's not your fault
It's all you've ever known (All you've ever known)
All you've ever known

The makers of the things you own
Own you
It's all you've ever known (All you've ever known)
All you've ever known (It's not your fault)

So scrape off your makeup
It's not your fault
And tear off your bra
It's all you've ever known
Untie your burqa
And show who you really are
Show who you really are
Show who you really are
Work less robotically
It's all you ever are
Play more creatively
Do things that matter
There's no reality to be found on TV (All you've ever known, all you've ever known)
Realize the lies, take back your life (All you've ever known, all you've ever known)
You are not a clone, so stop acting like one (All you've ever known, all you've ever known) (It's not your fault)
Realize the lies, take back your life (All you've ever known, all you've ever known)
You are not a clone, so stop acting like one (All you've ever known, all you've ever known)
