lyrics

after all,
it's the 21st century and we subsist in a world of extremists: fanatic, apathetic
(you should never just be either, but a bit of both or neither one would
be permissible).

when one's more apt to like and follow life than seek accomplishment out for oneself -
how do you find identity, know who you are?

that must be what makes it so easy to not care when our privacy is compromised.
we hand it away willingly ( I should say enthusiastically )
in ribboned parcels
of narcissistic status updates, ostentatious selfies, and haphazard gasconade.
we don't even know what it is we're giving away.

we disregard the threat swarming above us.
too busy primping for a night of tindering and fapping
to be bothered by wasps stinging with intrusion,
eyes in paintings moving,
tapped bedroom conversations.

it's an arduous task
acting with conscience in a world of approval seekers,
the stop at nothing opportunity takers, and the end justifies the means
personalities.
nobody wants to care that big brother and any others with power (money)
can view/sell/trade/kill us - without looking in our eyes.

but I offer resolution: seek approval from within,
nurture an identity, expand your mind by asking questions.
don't let your eyes caste themselves aside
seek alternatives that don't hide
behind terms & conditions.

take back the sky, take back the wires, take back your lives.
