Look, these places are disappearing. What exists
remains despite everything else. We’ve invited
everyone who observe no rules they recognize.
In backwards familiarity government and their corporate
buddies decide everything then demand we exercise
our vanished rights as citizens. And the worst
amongst us take advantage enacting racist ploys
in how they annoy like tattletale children. You
did it so now we are doing so without any care
or caution about how this destroys the present. Old
ideologies and gods rule over greed and stupidity.
This, our civilization, stays immature in its denials.
Only in the small places have the best ever thrived.
False ideas of democracy, fairness and corrupt concepts
threaten an identity already awaiting renewal. Wherever
we went and go we march in as conquerors under a flag
that challenges: we enforce the selves on which no
attention survives at home. Absent real truths put into practice,
the world and disenfranchised shout hypocrites, lies.
There has been no good direct towards the true prize,
the treasure tarnished, the costumes a disguise for the
camouflage of deceit: still we persist in passive defeat,
drifting into a war being born in the realization
the enshrinement of old ideals holds us hostage to bankrupt pleas.
