satisfaction 04:44
you’ve got the confidence that you’ve got nothing to prove she’s got the obviousness of all of the eyeballs in the room i closed my eyes, said yes to the prize, and gritted for my smiles i fell in line and sold my lies but then the sky it turned to dusk, that’s when it hit me i can’t get no satisfaction why can’t i be me? a spring in your step can really take you across town i’ve got my permission slip i open every door around check my credentials they say, this man he walks alone check my referentials they say, no one fucking knows so just let go i ditched my kids, my wife, and freed the cat that I named dave i bought a bike and a tank of gas and set off for something strange chemics ease all the days before nights before lights are fluorescent and small chemics ease, chemics ease, chemics ease, chemics ease can’t we see it doesn’t got to be any one way at all i can’t get no satisfaction why can’t i be free?

have you come to the day when everything changed all the things you were told all your faith and beliefs black is white and the saints are thieves all the characters stayed the same, but the names had changed they have changed the names have changed so you lick your finger, for the winds direction but the response is silence, and the day meanders but your eyes are open and your rage wants spoken do you claim it as mine, or hide between the lines? can you open your eyes, to see their disguise when we’ve all but spoken, i think the words are broken it’s such a beautiful hell, i mean we live so well careful on your way out, careful on your way bad karma for a life of doubt, bad karma for a life of doubt can you turn it around, will your voice be sound cause i’m over this, so are you coming with? truth be told, i can’t feel old so do you wanna wait, or do you wanna escape? do you wanna escape? escape? so you give it your best, and you try for the test but their language is boredom, and your mind is so sordid so do you swallow it, or do you sell their shit? do you claim it as mine, or hide between the lines?

it’s more than plausible for them it’s deniable cause we think it’s certifiable but they’re so damn reliable guilt free genocide rich people for climate change the richer you get, the sooner it comes it’s what they call, a win win where do we put the poor people once we don’t need their labor it’s an inconvenient problem to have it’s an inconvenient truth, but not for them guilt free genocide rich people for climate change to say it was the plan all along, well we can’t give credit, but they’ll sell you it mother nature’s a mysterious one don’t you think, can’t you wait to meet her? it’s an inconvenient problem to have it’s an inconvenient truth, but not for them you told me that we’d be okay you sold me but still garnished my pay put the pedal to the metal is this your wish? pedestrians walk at their own risk you told us that you were fit to lead but you just led us for dead put the pedal to the metal is this your wish? pedestrians walk at their own risk

fun police 03:22
check your phone, check the tape, check your attitude come on over we can fix your altitude no i’m sorry the rules they are not cool and yes it’s true they’ve turned you into a fool it’s inhumane, I know you know it too we can find your soul, off your knees, get outta the pew who made you the fun police did you always wanna grow up to be a narc? did you always wanna grow up, did you always wanna grow up? can you say that you’re having a good time? but you could just be confusing yours for mine i know it hurts but we’re all just trying to be good a few less rules, could maybe help if you could cause it’s inhumane I know you know it too we can find your soul, off your knees, get outta the pew i’ve got a secret, well not a secret, but it can’t be said enough there’s no boundaries, but your boundaries, say out loud all the ones you hate i don’t need your country lines i don’t need your sexual repression i don’t need the church’s stance they’re all just ideological infections

enemies 04:57
what are you waiting for, when you leave it up to them? i don’t wanna watch, and i don’t wanna see i don’t want my eyes to be only the glare of the screen i’m not gonna be your voyeur i’m not gonna pay for your luck i don’t wanna be your voyeur i’m not gonna pay to watch you i wanna live to be free i wanna shout, and spread my disease you can sit and hate if that’s all you believe but i’m gonna be the enemy it’s like a social anxiety curse you’re not the first, and it brings out the worst it’s like an orbit around the sun it hurts to stare, cause you’re never there all of the cynics know, choose the martyr over the saint cause every time we’d rather kill you than leave you alone what are you waiting for, when you leave it up to them? i wanna live to be free i wanna shout and spread my disease you can sit and hate if that’s all you believe but i’m gonna be the enemy

burn burn 03:53
can you tell me why, you keep it all inside can you take a pause, to see the fog so let your eyes adjust, until the voices hush are you a soul, or a role? choir choir the beautiful liar the church bell rings, it’s under our skin fire fire, to the highest buyer burn burn, but we never learn when they ask us why, we’ll start with a sigh could we see the smoke before everyone choked? debt to our eyes, fixed on the prize history’s only rule, history is cruel you know everything that I see you know everyone that i wanna be you know that I need it more than you i’ll read the words from your mind, we’re through but for now, Ill be cool i won’t be so loud, only your fool because my confidence, lacks of lack of confidence now now now, I’ll prove my worth i’ll take everything that i see i’ll give it to you my bride to be cause the kids need things, and then the kids need kids just tell me what next, can we consume?

vansanity 04:54
in the night i go to the trees and i beg, i beg and plead we wanted it, we got it every branch i ask it why why here, why hear in the in the sky? we wanted it, we got it every man, every man for himself your identity is just vanity, every man, every man for himself my anxiety seeks tranquility, every man, every man for himself smiles and eyes all lacking brevity, every man, every man for himself we can’t see it doesn’t need to be every single man every man for himself in the day i stare till i’m blind calculating in my mind we wanted it, we got it the intervals of fluorescent color every single bit, worth less than the other we wanted it, we got it every single man every man for himself we wanted it, we got it i’ve looked around town, you’re nowhere to be found but the streets have your name, why aren’t you ashamed? you know it’s wrong, but now we need a new law you justify your greed, you say it’s them or me you always need it all, you made it one big brawl power money and fame, why aren’t you ashamed? i don’t wanna know, how far you would go so just admit it to me, that you’re a fucking sleaze every single man, every man for himself why aren’t you ashamed? you’re just a fucking sleaze
