To The Hill

from Failed State by The Ugly Facade

lyrics

To keep the children eating fear
Like it’s a superfood
To keep the instincts trauma-clear
To cauterize the mood

To swallow every little thing they say
to change your destiny
To end up here seems like the furthest place
from where we thought we’d be

I can run I can seek without finding
I can fall I can fail without trying
I can make it to the hill without climbing

Breaking news:
faking truth
making millions on abuse
influence of flimsy views
Fluid wake of
Make it great
Make or break
Make her break her
Make us wake up
For the sake of
No escape from
Degradation
Generational
Erasure

There is no higher holy noose
To hang the scapegoat that we choose
Met with bureaucratic silence
Or threat of autocratic violence

I know that I will receive what’s given
I know that I will arrive where driven
I know that I will fall on every ear and no one will know my name

I know it’s not about me
But it could be
But it should be

Sometimes I am god
And sometimes I am
And sometimes I am
The wizard of
The wizard of
The wizard of Not
No shortcuts on the serpentine road

I can run I can seek without finding
I can fall I can fail without trying
I can make it to the hill without climbing

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
