"Symptoms" as written by and Alanis Morissette....
A missile sent today
Killed only 3
The rest were saved
They're far enough away to not really feel the direct effect on me

They caught him today
Based ridiculously
On his race
They weren't sure
He even did it
But they needed a random face

All these symptoms symptoms are simpler cuz
I've had moments in my life when I've contributed by believing
We are separate
We are separate
Disconnected in this unity

He won today
Smug self-satisfaction
On his face
He blew the others
Out of the water
He said and was glad
They were disgraced

All these symptoms symptoms are simpler cuz
I've had moments in my life when I've contributed by believing
We are separate
We are separate
Disconnected in this unity

He stole what he could
He only had minutes before he'd be caught
He justified every penny taken by blaming the gap between the rich and rich not

All these symptoms symptoms are simpler cuz
I've had moments in my life when I've contributed by believing
We are separate
We are separate
Disconnected in this unity
Separate we are separate
Disconnected in this unity
