This life is a plastic wrap
This life is a plastic wrap:
A bubble of conformity
Governed by such apathy
That leads to a spinal tap.
The latex screen screams
It's voice vile prosperous
Tells us we have no choice
As long as we live the dream!
So stuff our ears with money,
Text our comments in alienation
And forget about the fracking bomb.
We serve our time in a shell.
Prisoners of the mainframe
Seeking the 15 min’s of fame,
Not knowing the walls of hell.
The monster “I “screams mean
And we so ignorantly bow
As we serve this fake empty now
Not knowing the real scheme.
So stuff our eyes with sex games Te
Tell our fears to dead computers
And lie about the fracking bomb.
Its all coming to a sick and shitty end
The world the sky and the stars
And all that was once in cars,
Is ripped in boils of blood and the bends.
Are our plastic lives are simply lies
That we promote through cardboard boxes
Which we then flog on sad golf courses
That exist to just wash away the sky?
Can’t we really hear the spirit cry?
Or shall we stuff our mouths with products
As we blank our darkest fears to us
While we lie about the fracking bomb.
