This is a song about trying to tap into whatever it was that the people we've killed as a society were onto...


jesus christ and john lennon were both fighting for peace and humanity just in different ways cause one had a taste for LSD and rock and roll but we killed them both I guess that's what you get for preaching love to a dying world I wish I had the courage to assassinate hate I wish I lived life with the devotion of a saint or the conviction to just do what I say but my life is a paradox a satirical play where the lead role is a hypocrite who's intentions are great but his actions are more toxic than chips of lead paint and the drama is so gripping the crowd squirms in their seats hoping for resolution but there's no guarantee so they go to intermission and as they drink their tea they discuss what might happen in the upcoming scenes and they pray that things will turn around one-eighty degrees and that the lead will save the day with an introspective remedy mahatma gandhi and martin luther king were making headway everyday nonviolently but we don't know how to let it roll so of course we had to go on and kill them both I wish I had the courage to live without things to denounce all my possessions and pursue only dreams to step outside the boundaries of societies schemes and to always tell the truth even when it's frightening but i've never met anyone that lives life that way and I don't know where to start and I don't know if I'd be ok and the more I think about it I don't know anything but I pretend that I do and I usually get away with it which leads me to believe that this whole life is just a game and you would win or you could lose it doesn't matter either way cause in the end you'll just be dead and all of you that's left will be how you affected the others and how that'll affect what's next malcom little x and mister harvey milk were hardly short of visionaries so we talk about them still but when you preach of truths that folks aren't ready for that's when you get killed cause our society is ill and I hold my self accountable for how the world is today even though i wasn't here for everything that made it this way I come from people who were I've come a very long way and I've come too far to give up and walk away every flaw in man is present right in my brain and if I can't change myself how can I change anything? I have a world of resources right before my face so I have no excuses and there's no fucking way I can allow myself to check out and keep living this same charade something's gotta give something's gotta give something's gotta giveI think I gotta change!
