Self-soothing and self-improving, but not long 'til we start shooting.
Trained to be insane and punished for the same.

Consider this a withdrawal of my own
Where the fuck are we after two thousand years?
What have we become?
Just some cavemen with guns,
Almost like life is a game and we do it just for fun.

Disable your brain and make your move to insane.
Just do your fucking job and you won’t be the one to blame.
We are always the ones to blame.
I want to live free - no masters, no gods.
Stay young until I die but somehow that’s odd.
A purposeful facade suppressing who we are.
They ruined freedom so I am going to shut it down.

Progress is less than gradual when we are still killing each other,
Seems like we will go a full circle and end up back in trouble.
I'm going to stand tall above the oppression, above the hate.
Stand firm on my own two feet,
I know it’s hard but I am going to carry my weight.
Fuck ignorance, I’d rather be the invisible man,
And stay the fuck out of their master plan.
Live my life, the way that I am supposed to,
As a human, not as a fucking drone.

Everyday, I look around and I see what we value and it boggles my mind.
I can’t participate anymore,
Shut it down!
