Escaping the influence of societal greed

Elevated insight So clear Bright surety Releasing the grasp of kaleidoscopic obscurity Accepting any false judgments Microscopic impurities They are just contemporary deceits Don't let them become your present day defeats Don't feel compelled to let your life be kept discreet You have the power to disagree combating the issues of the common least Questioning the integrity of cosmic longevity You find that the truth isn't always so heavenly You may want to give up But there is no giving up gently Escaping the influence of societal greed I can't always be what you want me to be You must fight Fight hard and soft And persevere till your knuckles bleed Till there's nothing left but the will to be freed Impassioned by the spirit to live Tightening the rope Till there's isn't any give But to look in the reflection And be able to forgive Staring into our own eyes This isn't the way it’s always been But this is the time for your journey to begin
