Description:


A babbling statement on American conformity and...what's it called...desensitization. That's it. The spacing's weird on here, it doesn't look anything like this on my computer at home...


An Apocalyptic Endeavor



I:
I wander down the street, but nothing is the same
(I stood there and watched as the sewer went up in flames)
Got the suspicion, the sneaking suspicion,
that the world is coming to an end again.

II:
I want to head to work, but I'm not a scab.
Sir Death just hit that bus so I'll probably take a cab
But I hit the beach and the sea's dark red.
Well, I wasn't that much of a swimmer anyway.

Refrain:
"What's wrong with me?" I yell, and everybody
thinks I'm mental.
Oh, well--that happens.
Can you really sit and stare as it all comes
crumbling in around you?
It's just another lapse
(a temporary lapse of)

III:
Judgement takes the crown, and chaos takes the reins.
Every one of my thoughts makes me wonder if I'm insane--
A single stand-out thought, and we're as good as dead:
is it just me, or is the whole world sick in the head?

IV:
A couple shootings south, meeting Third and Main
There's some punk kid's car doing ninety in the wrong lane
Lucky that his plates were set in the right place;
Otherwise the police might've had a few words to say.

Refrain:
"What's wrong with me?" I yell, and everybody
thinks I'm mental.
Oh, well--that happens.
Can you really sit and stare as it all comes
crumbling in around you?
It's just another lapse
(a temporary lapse of)

--judgement.

  Desensitization? You've hit a subject close to my heart. Why? We exist in a self-advocating society in which the most powerful man in the world is completely unable to spell his own name correctly.
You know I'm not one for music, so I just thought I'd leave something on the lyrics. Man I'd like to meet your Muse someday, it's so direct, and in-your-face.

  Wow! this is an important statement. One that is often overlooked in everyone's attempt to have fun while the world still turns. If their type of fun is driving 90 in the wrong lane then they need the mental examination, not those of us watching with our eyes bulging at the ability of people to continually amaze us-and not in a good way.

I often feel that if any more bad happens to this earth God is going to smite the world. Although I look forward to that (seeing as I will be gone cause God will take His sons and daughters off the earth before smitting it), it hasn't happened yet. The violence continues to worsen, so much that i wonder if we should be bringing children into this evil world or if we should be barren (but that's another topic entirely).

Anyway (back on topic) I feel this really holds true and I love the way you come out and say what you mean w/o holding back!

  If you're going to take the time to read it, COMMENT! I am sick of you people skimming through something then going on about your business. After all, you want comments on your stuff, right? NEVER READ unless you intend to COMMENT.
