Left the herd

I never really enjoyed being with the herd
Sitting back watching i always preferred.
From within my mind I learned to find.
What makes us tick and what makes us turn
What makes the fire within us burn.
People are stupid it's easy to see
Yes I include even me.

We're told what to think and what to buy
If we don't fit in then we should die.
Lying to yourself and lying to your brother
All these lovers that is cheating on each other.
Into their shit I never bought 
I'm still in shock it's been purposely taught.

They needed to make you this vein 
Just a bunch of zombies without a working brain.
You started loving objects instead of the people
Why can't you see, you're all just sheeple.
Day by day to work you'll run
When do you ever think or have fun.

I know for a reason we all must live
I just hate only the poor ever give.
Surely you all must see the celebrity hypocrisy.
Drinking champagne while sat in a castle
Giving a speech on hunger isn't really a hassle.
