You say this world is going down,
So stand and speak your mind.
Yet you sit there with your eyes to the ground,
And watch it all go by.

You say you want to make a change,
Yet preach to silent walls.
Sloganize at center stage,
Or say nothing at all.

Swathed in grease, and cannabis;
A leach on society.
Naught but a trifle that none shall miss,
Like a cesspool by the sea.

So, sit you there and mourn this life
In silence, day by day.
Just leave me out of your ignorant strife,
Cause I'll be someone someday.
