i was raised to believe the lie
born to listen and die
beast in a cage no escape
opinions a packaged meal
well fuck that for a laugh
i’ll tear this city in half
the world ends when i’m dead
until then, until then
i’m here to fuck with the man
so stand the fuck to the side
or try your best to behave
forever lost not complete
new homes make tombs to defeat
no class just towers and shackles
on bleak streets

i would see change done
progress worth more
than a plastic resort
trapped in a landslide
buried under fucking cement
in this devil may care town

i’ll play the victim until
your act is fucking revealed
the vicious life that you've led
only the furnace reveals
unaccustomed i am
to all of your plans
still i smell the decay
see the pointless tirade
you use distrust as a blade
as well your faith a shield
you act the hero too late
it leaves a fucking distaste
at the roof of my mouth
i’m fucking calling you out
you sleep like a child while
bleeding out the veins of my town

doubting myself no less deserved
the chance that i’m taking
the difference i’m not making

at peace with what I've become
wastelander under the sun
