Same

One by one I am killing my emotions To save myself Keeping hold of my devotions Liberate myself Of disappointing expectations Reminding myself Of self preservation Cause the game it doesn't change It's always more of the same It will chew you up and spit you out Until routinely you're insane For balance is happiness Balance is pain Wrapped up for years In consolidated chains And it's always just the same Two by two They march on ever forward Together to the end At least until divorce court I am finding it all disturbing This constant state of discord This misery and pain Is troubling to the core Cause the game it doesn't change It's always more of the same It will chew you up and spit you out Until routinely you're insane For balance is happiness Balance is pain Wrapped up for years In consolidated chains And it's always just the same Frame by frame The images keep repeating Don't change that dial Please remain in numbered seating It keeps you satisfied While on your blood they have been feeding Sold yourself to fear For you feel your time is fleeting So the game needs to change We cannot allow it to be the same We must find the strength within To choose life over wealth and fame For balance isn't happiness And balance isn't pain It's the natural disaster It's the drought ending rain Lest it all be just the same
