    Lead by bridled frustration, a self induced sedation
    Hollow Conservative class, letting dreams pass.
    Wishing the ideals were real, a message we could feel
    But censorship suffocates and the meaning dissipates.

    Still striving for balance, oil in its gallons
    Directing a world where commerce is hurled
    Like a trophy of leisure, hobby governments endeavor
    While the poor keep dying and buyers keep buying.

    Empty shells with faces, stand in their places
    Filled with propaganda, another mans slander.
    Blind by acceptance, only learn via past tense
    Hungry for leaders who blanket and bleed us.

    False rights provide assertion, superiority exertion.
    Covered in invisible labels, relying on fables
    Social conscience is abstract, morality was a cutback.
    We are freedom on probation, another newspaper nation.

    Dissolved in our indifference
    (Contrary to belief)Submission is no defense

      This reads like a rap song. It presents the reader with a picture of stifled expression. I agree with Twila that it needs more punctuation. I'm not sure I completely understand what the author is saying. It has great rhyming throughout.

      It just so happens I was listening to Rage Against the Machine's, Calm like a Bomb, when I read this. If these were song lyrics they'd fit nicely with the song. I like your "Social conscience" presented here, some of your stanzas don't add up. However, if you added puctuation it would make those ideas whole thoughts.
