The environmental police drive pick-up trucks,
and I can't buy happiness at ten bucks an hour,
but I think Lady Luck might be about to change.
Word is, she's freshening up in the shower.
Further empower what's already quite overgrown,
tune into the radio, become a part of the drone;
that's the essence of society, at least the way that I was shown,
but my sense of propriety has long since been overthrown
by a syndicate of dedicated indicators
educating empty-headed haters like me.
Across the country, punks are vindicating one another.
Somehow, somehow, we set each other free.
Ladies and gentlemen, I'm here to entertain myself
but also you.
Oh, Hades, some sentiment has stained my selfish heart,
it's something new.
A hybrid by-product of a mind sucked dry
by intellectual vampirism and coffee shops
can find a home amongst its fellow homunculi,
can still dance to bridge the schism when the music drops.
I see you shouting from behind your cardboard "For sale," sign,
and I think "Hey, your predicament ain't so different from mine."
Soliciting explicitly and paying the fines,
we're all just waiting for the planets to align
so we can elevate our current state of Suburb Simulator,
trade it up, counter-incarcerate whatever holds us back.
Around the world vies a new breed of personal space invader,
those who oppose will be remembered for getting off track.
Tangential hexes fill my repertoire,
"the plan," is but a tertiary measure.
Experimental drugs made me see stars,
but stars alone could not remind me how to treasure.
