Recklessness knows no age
Im a beast in a cage
A slave to the rage

Assholes on a pedestal
Refuse to make a change
Different people, 
The bullshits the same

Narcotics increase thinking range
I wont blaze, but ill drink 
Til the drunk evil gaze
Pierces your soul again

Fuck it, and mankind's divine sense of reality

Standing in line
Waiting to die
And no one wonders why
We call this life

Work til the lifes sucked right out of us 
And now remind me why
I live the outline 
Of American life and how its supposed to be
To achieve prosperity?

If we dont follow the guide lines 
we are shit on and assighned
The adjective of an anarchist parody

Like our forefathers say, fuck the government that treats its people like enemies
Living a false sense of security
A dangerous thinker is how our leaders refer to me
Revenge is what i want on the people that gave up on me
My rebel and defiance is the Goddamn curse of me.

A desensitized generation of immoral apathy
At a young age kids are controlled by a pharmaceutical brain washing tyranny
Losing themselves until driven to insanity
Gunning down their peers because they saw it on a tv screen
And marijuana demonized even though its therapy
Bringing people a stable and positive sense of reality 
But sometimes the only way out of this life of hilarity 
Is a bullet to the temple, sadly the anticipation brings clarity.
