Euphoric Paranoia And The Embrace of Conspiracy

Believe what you want to
If that's your prerogative
Prognosis is dire here
Your outlook's so positive

Your optimist viewpoint
Sees life through the rose-tint
So blissfully unaware
Despite all the evidence

And I'd turn my head
If I thought it would help
While being force-fed
All the lies that they sell

We know very well it won't…

It still hurts to see them soldier on
And where's the right when everything's gone wrong?
Where's the rhyme, the reason to the song
If you don't know the words, you can't sing along

Broken verses, horde by hearses, and the widow's tears
And those heartrending cries that assault your ears
Asphalt, whooping cough, and the waning years
If you have never been seen how can you disappear?

Bite back the retorts
And cover up all your tracks
You can't share your thoughts here
So it's best to proceed with tact

Distorted agendas
Why won't you surrender?
The protocol mandates
You return to sender

So give back your soul, luv
And give up your dreams, too
Who said you could have them
Your emotions will bleed through

Do you want us all to see?

It still hurts to see them soldier on
And where's the right when everything's gone wrong?
Where's the rhyme, the reason to the song
If you don't know the words, you can't sing along

Deterred dreams, unraveling seams, and the suspicious eyes
That peer through you, that see through you and your suspicious mind
Through endless dark you've stumbled, searching for elusive light
If no one's looking for you how can you expect to hide?

Whatever they told you
Whatever they said
It's best to forget
And go back to bed

Whatever you've seen here
Whatever you saw
It's simply illusion
There's no proof at all

Whenever you think
Whenever you do
Best be aware
We are watching you

Watch which lines you cross
Best watch where you step
'Cause we're right behind you
And records are being…

Kept…

It still hurts to see them soldier on
And where's the right when everything's gone wrong?
Where's the rhyme, the reason to the song
If you know the words, better sing along

Broken verses, horde by hearses, and the widow's tears
And those heartrending cries that assault your ears
Asphalt, whooping cough, and the waning years
If you have never been seen how can you disappear?

It still hurts to see them soldier on
And where is right when all is wrong?
Where is logic, what's the song
If we don't know the words, we can't sing along

Deterred dreams, unraveling seams, and the suspicious eyes
That peer through you, that see through you and your suspicious mind
Through endless dark you've stumbled, searching for elusive light
When everyone is out to get you, there'll be no place to hide….
