Trapped inside my mind, Relapsing overdrive, I thought that I could handle these sequences, But my will was used against me, Through this algorithmic dementing. I took the bait, And by the time I changed my mind it was already too late. A taste so sweet, Who would've thought that something so dull could cut right through me. Minutes feel like hours, Each hour makes me weaker, Inanimate deceiver, No end seen, no relievers. Thoughts turn into patterns, Forgetting all that matters. Falling through the rift, I'm plunging, Chemicals have overrun me. When I could see, This suffering, Made me feel like I was losing.. My sanity, My dignity, But you still wouldn't hear me. Looking at me, Nonchalantly, Acting like it was nothing. If it were you, Instead of me, You would know that I wasn't bluffing. Terror, So close to slumber. A vocal attempt of resurrecting, A downward spiral never ending. Relief, To live the next day. Despising the decisions I've made, Feels like I'll never live the same. I know that hell was my savior, Exonerate myself, I dug my own way out. When I could see, This suffering, Made me feel like I was losing.. My sanity, My dignity, But you still wouldn't hear me. Looking at me, Nonchalantly, Acting like it was nothing. If it were you, Instead of me, You would know I wasn't bluffing. Now I can see, You're dead to me, Cut you out cuz you're toxic, Destroying me, And all my things, A presence so obnoxious. Claiming to be, A friend to me, Now I know all the symptoms. A cycle broken, I won't fall victim to the algorithm. Feels like I am stuck in this remission, Actuality, it feels so different, All of life had changed in just an instant, I'd lost a part of me I'd never given. I'd never give in. When I could see, This suffering, Made me feel like I was losing.. My sanity, My dignity, But you still wouldn't hear me. Looking at me, Nonchalantly, Acting like it was nothing. If it were you, Instead of me, You would know I wasn't bluffing. Now I can see, You're dead to me, Cut you out cuz you're toxic, Destroying me, And all my things, A presence so obnoxious. Claiming to be, A friend to me, Now I know all the symptoms. A cycle broken, I won't fall victim to the algorithm I found my own way out

Landscapes painted with glamorous delusion. Idols are blinding, like staring into the sun. The more we see, the less we're catching on. Heavy pockets, Choose the topic, Cut your losses, It won't kill you to hit the off switch. Media is killing us, By thrilling us, Stuffing skulls with this useless knowledge. Mandates taking on the shape of suggestion, Man caged in himself without any question. Our ignorance is what they're founded on. Inner conflict, Fucking stop it, Cock or drop it, If you shoot aim at the right fucking target. Killing brothers, For another, Crying mothers, Losing sleep over the son that loved her. Step up, Stand out, There's so much strength in numbers. Wake up, Get out, From a life that's spent in slumber. What's life worth trapped inside a prism? Will we succumb? Will we break free from this control mechanism? Find the solution, Stop the pollution, Break the illusion, Come to conclusion, See the intrusion, End the drought, Just use your mouth, And words will sprout, It's our god damn right, To let it out. We were all born to be free, We were not born to live a scheme. Taught to suppress our dreams, We are a masterpiece. Step up, Stand out, There's so much strength in numbers. Wake up, Get out, From a life that's spent in slumber. What's life worth trapped inside a prism? Will we succumb? Will we break free from this control mechanism? Control mechanism.
