lyrics

So why are we presented with
A synopsis of our existence in words?
Describing the tip of the iceberg
Who cares about the history of what floats in these waters?
The axioms that power the ships to harbor

Release the pressure; indulge in this information age where we seek
Constant relief from these worn-out recipes of cultivated fear
Through abridged stories, knowledge here and now in a blink of an eye.
Never before have we been so addicted to lies

Let's think of how knowledge is shared
What's omitted and retained
How fact can be no more than fiction
Does truth scream out or is it shaped?

Waiting patiently for your
Latent thoughts to infect your mind
To recognize that we're sold lies
As truths you love, you love to buy

So now that we know, turn a blind eye in dismay
Eat up; drink up anything, to drown out this relentless bitter taste
Logged in between, a soiled rock and a hard place
