lyrics

restrict our vision, symbol of desire is a self made prison
cell block except they made you choose
so your conscious brain doesn't register the abuse
I got a thorn rope wrapped around my lifeless arm
Obama's porn-hope never really worked its charm
I guess it's lucky I even lived this long
the world the way it is back and forth ping-pong

South African mines, rape pillage plunder colonial mind
it might be your paradigm, it can't be mine
the hollow men lead us in the land of the blind
footsteps in the vacant halls, people with faces like painted dolls
grim reaper now and my flesh a mask
and I'm quite a bit deeper than the standard task
pacified violence, chorus of gestapo by Molly Cyrus
handguns brought to you by Mickey Mouse
a glory hole shaped like Tinkerbell's mouth
hand grenades are like apple pie
the god that they worship the pyramid's eye
bazookas shoot footballs out
radiation farms where missiles sprout
grammar school they tell me up is down
and next thing that I know I'm underneath the ground
survival upstairs now is the name of the game
I got to stay aware yeah if I want to maintain
balance on beam like a high rise gymnast
medicine death is a prime time privilege
turn on tune out, switch the broadcast
our time right now, anthem of outcasts

restrict our vision, symbol of desire is a self made prison
cell block except they made you choose
so your conscious brain doesn't register the abuse
I got a thorn rope wrapped around my lifeless arm
Obama's porn-hope never really worked its charm
I guess it's lucky I even lived this long
the world the way it is back and forth ping-pong

can not tame the lion in me
the United States government is lying to me
got an AK pointed at what's spying on me
got a right to pursue my own liberty
yeah fuck the bullshit every step is free
my mind is my most precious property
heavy chains, slaves to wealth
tell the church man go ahead and save yourself
locked up, raped in the asshole
Solid Rock Church got the cocaine cash flow
take the mask off, expose the lies
justice they speak of a clever disguise
never really know til you got handcuffs on
but when you know then you know from that moment it's on
never going back, why would we anyway?
card house crumble from structural decay

restrict our vision, symbol of desire is a self made prison
cell block except they made you choose
so your conscious brain doesn't register the abuse
I got a thorn rope wrapped around my lifeless arm
Obama's porn-hope never really worked its charm
I guess it's lucky I even lived this long
the world the way it is back and forth ping-pong
