lyrics

[Verse 1]
Seeing money permeate our society
A man-made drug got us playing "get as high as me"
It's like our brains built receptors
To signals overriding emotions that would connect us

We are still subscribed to the concept of race
Though in human taxonomy it just doesn't have a place
But it's cool, cause divide and conquer always been a staple
In history as a tool, to keep me and you as slaves

It gets subtle when we think we are awake
Putting stock in disinformation we hear on the waves
Or read on the web, poorly researched articles appear
To debunk facts long proven, believe what you want

As long as you don't point a gun at those who disagree
But since we'd rather be right than be at peace
Out goes the ratchet, another man splattered on the floor
Over whose fairytale should be the law


[Hook]
It's like that, and uh
Put the money in the bag, give it to back to the, banks
Living every day in fear of being broke
Helping other people stay rich, you'll never get a "thanks"

It's like that, and uh
Put the, pieces together, check facts and you'll see
Every ideology becomes a cult to divide us
Feuding over what it is that we believe


[Verse 2]
What's your life like? Apart from the moments you post
To bait either admiration, envy or some of both
So you met a famous guy and by taking a pic
With him, you boost your self-esteem like it's making a difference

Insecurity's a doggone plague
When in public people calling for a safe space
Just to evade the scrutiny at large -
Levelled at them everyday anyway, grow a hide or go in hiding

Never been fond of PC, no surprises
Life is hectic as it is, find me where the quiet is
And I don't have an angle on shit, I'm just biased
Like everyone else, though much less so in private

Can't stuff me in a box, tryhards attempt though
Denying it and hate to be reminded
They better learn to spell 'fore they're throwing the book
Do like the average phone user and shoot yourself in the foot
Go to Norway...


[Hook]
It's like that, and uh
Put the money in the bag, give it to back to the, banks
Living every day in fear of being broke
Helping other people stay rich, you'll never get a "thanks"

It's like that, and uh
Put the, pieces together, check facts and you'll see
Every ideology becomes a cult to divide us
Feuding over what it is that we believe
