A Good Thing

Communications breakdown – no one listens what they’re sayin’
In denial as gods are playing out their games
Total systems failure across the board the lights are flashin’
The dealers are all cashin’ in their chips it’s time to go

Back home the shadows are still silent under beds
Occasionally we wonder if it was all in our heads
Memories flicker brightly voices slightly telling lies
And they still don’t hear the cries

Living in excesses – pushing all the limits
To destroy the excuses – time will tell
If it was a good thing
If there’s more to this than meets the eye
At least that’s what I want to do while I can

Absence of reason – they will rule by confusion
So no one can come to a conclusion of their own
Destruction of innocence – it’s their way or none
Teach you to be dumb brainwash your mind it’s what they do

Government corruption devils in disguise
Well practiced in the arts of telling the prettiest of lies
Memories showing images of what they wanted me to know
I can see it clearly it is time to go

Living in excesses – pushing all the limits
To destroy the excuses – time will tell
If it was a good thing
If there’s more to this than meets the eye
At least that’s what I want to do while I can
