lyrics

They were picking up the bodies on TV
when I caught a reflection of you and me
staring back at us while frozen on the screen.
Crank the white noise and pretend
that we’re asleep
that we’re asleep
dream dream dream dream

They were separating families carelessly
under the guise of protecting you and me.
Jailing innocents, no hope of being free.
Crank the white noise and pretend
that we’re asleep
that we’re asleep
dream dream dream

They were lining up the unsuspecting teens
for a violent moment of celebrity.
Golden bullets blessed by lobbyist money
Splash a tidal wave of blood into your stream
Weaponizing what’s left of your empathy
Trapped inside a void that zeroes out the screams
It’s not a dream
It’s not a dream
It’s not a dream
It’s not a dream
It’s not a dream
Not a dream
Not a dream
It’s not a dream

The only framework capitalism can thrive in is dystopia. Fuck all the fakers acting like they’re interested in hearing us when we yell, “Hold accountable the architects of hopelessness and neverending violence!”

They’ll be like “whatever, idiot” and fuel their brand of power incorruptible like it exists. Saintly fronts in a system that rewards only the greediest.
The only endgame for capitalism is dystopia and we know all about but we just don’t know what to do.
What can we do?
What can we do?

“Nothing more to see here y’all.
Good night, start heading for the exits.”

FUCK VIOLENCE.
