lyrics

Well is it safe to say that the state is taking over? Keep a chip on your shoulder, apathetic when you're older. Go to school and buy a diploma. Even if you don't listen well, you can get that middle class white collar prison cell.

People bleed to get you what you 'need.' We've got a system full of venom that abolishes freedom for some. You've got to run the gun, pay a lung just to see the sun... Already done, see? Put away your humvee. The way we're living isn't given to treating each other humbly. Come see everything I'm doing. I'm improving. We've got too much movement so I keep the music soothing. Life passes like a bullet, catch it in your teeth. I'm gonna write down every word that I'm beneath. In the right town, I'm gonna walk around in my nightgown, ask Virginia Woolf to put the light down, right now.

Skinematic: I'm adament for the Vatican manakins. I'll forgive the management of the mass shananigans and i'll ask the sanitary to ration medicinary cash and I'll send them all to Nashville cemetery. Every last one of y'all's asking to fall facts, skin and all that's gonna haul ass down the hall.

I speak to minds unlimited. At times, I'm ripping it. a fine line, isn't it, when rhymes are different. I'll find time listening to rhymes that are infinite but mine have a kind of time line that limits them. Listen in, because I'm smoking the pot that I'm pissing in and now line thiefs find me and ask if I'm with them then. My attention is exhausted from falling off from those on ridilan forget them then. I'll find a different school for little kids, walking a route between withdrawn and beligerent. I'm fitting in and the sad part is that I live with them. I've stopped picking my friends, now I'm inventing them. Their lives collide with mine at very minimums, and I scoured the world to find my synonyms, so f@* off.
