How I feel about dull, derivative people who try to emulate one another, like a herd of cattle headed towards a cliff.

There's gotta be a better way 
There's gotta be a way to freebase someone's soul 
Take it in and suck it down and cough it up like so much smoke 
Then take another and another and another 
Repeat 
Freebase everyone 
All those same-as-me-and-you fuckers 
People with no personalities 
People whose identity is taken from a person whose identity is taken from a PR executive whose identity is taken from a college course which is taught by a man who reads it from a book 
You know who they are because you see their face in every face 
Knowledge is power, but attaining it is poisonous 
So be fast 
Inhale the venom 
Spit it back out 
Repeat 
Burn these fuckers up quick, before they get a chance to keep talking, keep rolling 
Puke them up, move on to the next one 
Repeat 
No need to drag it out 
You'll get bogged down in superfluous details 
Rituals will drag you under and drive you mad 
Cabin fever in your skull 
And that's when they've got you 
Their hands clawing up through the mud waiting for stragglers 
Like living, breathing land mines 
A drowning person will cling to anything or anyone to survive 
Even if it means dragging you down 
Even a drowning rat knows what floats and what doesn't 
And everything floats down here 
So just smoke 'em if you got 'em 
And baby, we got 'em
Put the lighter to 'em 
Take what you need and get the Fuck outta Dodge 
Rip and run 
Smoke 'em up cough 'em up spit 'em out 
Repeat 
Before they get you too
