People yearn for peace through the night When they can only see by inferno light A flame that engulfs the world But begins in our hearts We've been tainting this pearl From the very start
When ****** is part of their plan I honestly attempt to understand But the tears I hate flood my brain When fears create blood and pain I'm willing to lose my agency As long as they don't aim at me
We bang our heads on the wall Until they roll on the floor They built a ceiling so we'll fall So we can't reach the door I am no longer the man inside the estate When I'm disenfranchised by the state
So I'm pushed to society's outskirts For the people with whom I flirt And my perceived net worth But where one society ends another begins And they all claim that I've committed sins So I wander around Just not inside towns Where the bullets fly like the accusations And productivity drains all inspiration
I live in the remote wilderness now I hoped things wouldn't be so loud I hear drum beats in the distance They're explosions killing infants But there's nowhere else to turn And my lawn is starting to burn Must I deal with the chaos colossus Or could I continue playing possum? Must I stare into the fiery abyss To make it onto heaven's list? Must I return to the mainland To experience my final stand?
I will wrest sovereignty from them I will rest in poverty until then But I would rather have less money Than subtract family members They say you draw more flies with honey But all the flies die in December
