Lyrics from the band in my head

Verse:
Remember when common sense prevailed?
Somehow, some way, these days it's failed
Remember when we could climb still-higher?
Now it's engulfed by invisible fire
 
Pre-Chorus:
You laugh at reality, I laugh at you
I cry tears at the stupid things you do
 
Verse:
Nearing the bottom of water so dark
The beast has left his narcissist's mark
Swamp bottom littered with high ideals
This is how decline looks and feels
 
 
Pre-Chorus:
You laugh at reality, I laugh at you
I cry out loud at the stupid things you do
 
Chorus:
Welcome to Horrified, the end of the line
Surrender your principals and you'll fit in fine
Welcome to Horrified replaced the city on a hill,
Contracting ideals leave a view to a kill
 
Verse:
Right turn at delusions so many believe,
Colors the reality that so many perceive
Water from the swamp covers the facts
Cling to the shore with the end at our backs
 
Pre-Chorus:
I laugh at reality, I laugh at you
I cry out loud at the stupid things you do
 
Chorus:
Welcome to Horrified, the end of the line
Surrender your principals and you'll fit in fine
Welcome to Horrified replaced the city on a hill,
Contracting ideals leave a view to a kill
 
END

Nice lyrics. Do I detect a bit of snide sarcasm in there?

Very nice, what genre of music will the lyrics go with?
Rock? Hillbilly? Jazz?

Thanks, S. B; as I used to be in a metal band and wrote lyrics back in the day, that's the kind of band I envision when I pen these
