Deceive Your Perception

Strange vibes as our lives lie in the balance
Disconnect, yeah, come correct
So en-lies the challenge
Keep your piece of mind behind the blind shut tight
No light shinning in
Pretend to control what we all can't comprehend

See them people on the street
Well they ain't got no food to eat
The best you can offer is your prayer.. Saying

Oh lord, please let me succeed
Permit me to kill what will not bleed
On your knees you wait
For fate to deal your hand
How comforting the thought of another life
Well i wouldn't fucking bank on it

Everyday i believe
Everything and nothing

Spoon fed twice, i been hypnotized
Let my subconscious dance with ignorance
Consumed some time stomaching synthesized
Ideals of nature but emotions run wild
Killing some, wounding more, but captivating all
To perceive the deception and ignore the call
Of the material, ignorant, militant mind
Who can you trust when everything goes awry?

Oh doctor, help me please
I'm paranoid as hell
My mind's got a disease
Diagnose, right me off, fill prescriptions and our heads
Apathetic propaganda, we've become the living dead
If we blindly follow
Do not taste simply swallow
The desired effects
Fuck that. Let's reject it!

See them people on the street
Well they ain't got no food to eat
The best we can offer is our prayers.. Saying

Oh lord, please let me succeed
Permit me to kill what will not bleed
On your knees you wait
For fate to deal your hand
How comforting the thought of another life
Well i wouldn't fucking bank on it

Everyday i believe
Everything and nothing
Everyday i bleed
Everything and nothing

Fists in the air
Guns in the ground
Hearts break like sound waves
On the ocean of love

They're deceiving our perception
We gotta perceive the deception
