Indian Style

They sell their spit as rain
we revel in our shame
the rebels outta settle
on where to shift the blame
the divisionary game is
the way they entertain kids
when they get you where the brain is
praise Jesus and the famous
humans are the strangest
form of coward and courageous
we worship gods and nations
looking past each other on our space ships

A Hollow Cost

If you got something to say you might as well save it
my counter point is your face in the pavement
I tire of talking to pacified zombies
who speak of economies and winning the lottery
who thinks God hates sodomy and babies shouldn't die
who thinks humans grow wings and live in the sky
who thinks evil men live in the core of the earth
who thinks the core of a man is his financial worth 
who thinks anymore is the real fucking question
we parrot opinions and ignore the lessons
accepting blessings because they're needed
we're fatter than the ego we're feeding
we're becoming the lesser of more than 2 evils
hundreds of millions of guilty ass people

A Symptom of Arrogance

The questions we don't ask are the ones that we're made of
like why they painted Jesus white and made him betray us
Are the people in charge the ones we're afraid of?
What do they do with the money after they rape us?

Build satellites to silently tape us
psychologically they spit in our faces
push us around, tell us to be gracious
No wonder we're all fucking racists
the rich all have the same colored faces

So protesters grab your torches
and set fire to the fortress
they don't want war, they just want worship
it's all about that keep you poor shit
when you can't afford the cost of living
you must burn down the fucking city

Well Dressed

It's how we grieve like death's unimpressed
It's how we live like there's a monetary cost of success
It's how we breed like it's the answer to our sadness
It's how we read into the lies that brings us madness 
It's how we leave like breath from a chest
out into the world to become everything unseen
If this was a dream I think I'd never sleep again
Too many demons for me to comprehend

I trust you
to know the difference
between a judgement and an inference
when I look the other way
while you're expressing your opinions

My desire is to slander
your one way path to danger
slap the shit out of a neighbor
to remind them you're a stranger

I trust you out of habit
in the hopes it's worth the practice
last time I got my ass kicked
I learned nothing's truly classic

My hope is
when we both kiss
there's explosions out of focus
we burn hot where the smoke is
smoldering beneath the roses

in short

to contribute
to compromise
to not just not lie
to tell the truth when asked why
these things matter
we need look no further than the way things are
to understand the importance of honesty
because honestly, there's not an honest thing
about the way we conduct ourselves
there's no honor or nobility
we have the means but lack ability
to consider the consequences
of living so selfishly
as a species we'll be reaping
the fruits of no savior
there's no redeeming this type of behavior

Lost in the worth of the moment
loss in the worth of a vote
I tend to words like the worst
kind of food in your throat
what's worse than a world
with the illusion of hope
a knot in a rope
with no suicide note
what's worse than a world
with the illusion of hope
a thought so absurd
it ruins the joke
