Purposely vague meaning, make up your own interpretation
Fuck the World

At the time of evolution, I stayed a monkey
With the caffeine-fueled late nights, feeling like a junky
I’ve been off to a fresh start every other year
Can’t keep up, keep living in fear
Keep missing meds, my own fault I can’t sleep
Like a red state baby born without a heartbeat
I keep waking up angry, borderline deadbeat
Psycho with a razor blade, time to make my wrist bleed
Schizoid pick-up artist feeling like a loner
Can’t tell the difference is it dysfunction or disorder
Or am I just trapped in a world in pain?
Is it really me or is society insane?

Preachers pushing dogma, getting us to heaven
Politicians selling crack at the 7-11
12 year old kids whoreing out to make ends meet
40 something mothers can’t get off of the love seat
In a nicotine dream where I was king of the world
I kept popping pills to feel more like a girl
Desperate to fit in, always lacking confidence
Finding solace in bottle burning up my esophagus
Resting easy on a welfare check
Alone at last, time to go to bed
Nightmares convince me to believe in evil
Is this really satan or is it just people?

Life is worth living as I’m still believing
No prayers said for sinners and heathens
Fucked up loser, go ahead and kill me
Castrate with pills cause young kids thrill me
So far, so good, staying clean
It’s hard for a pimp and harder for a love machine
Too young, too sick to die at my age
Too smart to keep living on minimum wage
Society’s reject, moral minority
Cat in a dog pound, man in a sorority
Sick in the head but properly medicated
Dangerous to others but safely sedated
