Fool the old

Indoctrinate the young

Lies bought and sold

Spun - Flipped upside down

Hot becomes cold -

Smart to dumb

Need to do as you're told..,

The future going to be a lot of fun.

Clinging to every breath

Go numb and succumb

They say there is certainly nothing worse than death

But now desires upset - they cry

Searching for that fountain of youth

They try and try..,

While everyday, pray

For that paradise in the sky

Get sick and think to realize

Forget what the good books say

Too many fears to satisfy


Go get high, deny and comply - the superficial glorified

Cause there’s nothing worse than death

Except, and just to clarify -

Answer the what and why -

And that would be.., To never die.
