We Choose Our Paths

We all go about, our daily lives
Trying to do our best
All worried and stressed
We can't fail, we can't fail
No smiles or happy thoughts
We're consumed in our doom
We don't care if we're about to lose our integrity
Sometimes you have to lie to win
No smiles or happy thoughts
We're consumed in our doom
We're at the point that we'd break
Somebody else's love
Just to gain our own pleasure
Our own devious smiles
But nobody smiles anymore
We're all consumed in our doom
Luminosity no longer exists
For even if we have a spark of light
It's taken from us from someone else's anger
Someone else's hate
The world, crumbling within our hands
As we let the poor suffer
Drown in their tears and pain
We let them starve
We cause the wars
We let the bombs fall
Because of our greed
Our lust of power
While others cry, plead, scream
For an escape from their nightmare
Not knowing they're truly awake
Blinded from such hate
They don't know any better
They've been fed the fabricated truths
As we all have
