The Lyrics

I have come across some rather interesting 2020 statistics regarding US suicides, divorces, people under 30 living with their parents, employment, and labour force participation. Consider this song as one expected outcome of these calamities. One that lacks a purpose to be become self-sufficient, whether the opportunities exist or not, does not create a blank check for violence. Anyways this is from the Pieces Of You album cut.
(Verse 1)
You put your mask on, and join with the crowd
You’re always thinking that’s right
And I walked passed the buildings
Never knew graffiti as, part of the layout
You’re branded the delirious one with
Black shirt and cardboard signs
You were culturally cancelling, because it aligns
You brought the guillotine, for a scary scene
When others success makes you upset

(Pre-Chorus 1)
Well in case the cops are absent
In case the cops have quit
This is our life burning before you
This is me not having it

(Chorus)
These foolish crimes will tear our land apart
And your mindless rage will make me depart
You’ll make me depart

(Verse 2)
You’re always lacking in your history
Facing all, that white guilt, like Fahren,-heit 451
The literature which remained
Marx had taught you
You learned Trotsky, and you’d tweet to your comrades
As I stupidly paid your expense
There is no merit from your facts
Facts about hate crimes, facts about wealth
Facts about all fams needed for a kid’s health
I saw in the tool, shed full of rope
Somewhere there’s a statue, pulled away by
Some dope like you

(Pre-Chorus 2)
Excuse me
Think you have limited your narrative scope
Narratives from MSM
Narratives I cannot cope

(Chorus)
These foolish crimes will tear our land, will tear our land
Will tear our land apart
And your mindless rage will make me depart
You’ll make me depart

(Outro)
You put your mask on
Join with the crowd
You’re always thinking that’s right

(Instrumental Fade Out)
Not looking for laughs on this one.
