They lock their doors and close their blinds
Filling their television minds
Afraid to even look outside
For fear of ever judging eyes
Feeding on every single lie
Not once gazing at the sky
One can't help questioning why
They lack introspection to look inside
Outside, the planet wheeps
Echoing through the empty streets
Screaming beneath the concrete
Her warning we do not heed
Burdened by the media fleet
Beating us down into our seats
This serenade to soul's defeat
Gone is any want to be free
This is your life passing you by
And yet you want to run and hide
Mother, why do they lie to me?
Why do they want me too blind to see?
Why do they run at the sight of me?
As truth erodes, so goes society
