Music: Lawrence
Lyrics: Van Lanen

Uneducated, self-taught
The story of demise
Self-realized through the experience
Of torment in this life
A strength attained
To never settle for an acceptance
Of “that’s just the way it is”

So young
So innocent
So much love stripped away

With each passing day
Exposure to the wicked ways
And the cure of illusion, which I could never accept
So here I am more withered, but stronger than ever
Every moment of each day we’re fighting for our lives

With no desire to decipher accurately
An explanation of reason
Left with only the instinct of a being
Who knows what must be done

I’ve been there; I fucking lived in the dirt
Had my face smashed in by steel toed boots
And the first of kin

Stared down the barrel
The barrel in my eyes
And barely escaped
Escaped with my life
Felt the cold sting of inhumanity first hand
Where the fuck were you?

Deep within my every cell
Lies pathological
Epidemic of domestication
The colonizers have become
Colonized themselves, throughout

I will not fall into their lies
I will not fall into their lies inside of…

A twisted mind
A twisted heart
Born of a twisted culture
Lifelong torment the consequences
Of coming to acceptance
With this veracity
It will make you cold
And unforgiving
