An attempt at writing a song with screaming weaved into it. The song covers society's misconceptions and tendency to punish those who are different, whether they mean to or not.

Old fashion lobotomy to rid me of this obsession.
Take that pick and stab me right between the eyes.
Suture up my conscious with a staple gun.
So pretty drowning in my blood.
I don't remember when this jacket of straps,
was put on to constrict my thoughts.
[A room of padded dreams,
to medicate my sleep.]
I'M JUST A BRAINWASHED VICTIM OF SOCIETY'S MISCONCEPTIONS!
I CAN'T GET FREE OF THIS PLACE!
IT'S LIKE A JAIL WITH BARS PLACED ON YOUR FACE!
I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS!

They make your decisions with a remote control.
The subliminal messages just didn't penetrate,
the thickness of our psyches.
So here we go with the trend,
fake emotions with smile rendered perfect.
[We live here in the mental hall,
only because they've lost it!]
I'M JUST A BRAINWASHED VICTIM OF SOCIETY'S LIES!
I CAN'T GET FREE OF THIS PLACE!
IT'S LIKE THE ADDICT'S FAVORITE PLAN!
I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS!
FUCKING TIRED OF THIS PLACE!

The government is sweeping out the people who start the revolutions. We are taught it's wrong to be different. That we shouldn't put up a fight unless they flick that switch they tells us to commit suicide and murder for their own selfish needs!
I'M JUST A BRAINWASHED VICTIM OF THE GOVERMENT'S IDEAL RACE!
I CAN'T GET FREE OF THIS AYSLUM FOR THOSE WHO BREAK THE RULES!
I WANT FREE OF THIS PLACE!
I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF THIS!
FUCKING TIRED OF THIS PLACE!
OF THEIR FACES WHO LOOK UPON ME LIKE A CIRCUS ATTRACTION!
I'M TIRED OF PEOPLE BECOMING LOST IN THE RADIO WAVES OF THESE
LIES!
