FFS

FFS (J Neo Marvin-Davis Jones)

Living in a box
Dreaming of wide open spaces
Found a place to land
Found your psychic homeostasis
Keep the lid clamped down
While your eyes betray your fear
No one ever tells the truth
About anything at all around here

Keep your mind shut down and expect me to shut up
You keep your mind shut down and expect me to shut up

Question time is over now
Excuse yourself, your brain is full
Everything you know
Has to fit in the right sized bowl
School’s out forever, man
You don’t need no education
Things are really bad out there
You’re better off not changing the station

Keep your mind shut down and expect me to shut up
You keep your mind shut down and expect me to shut up

Put the blame on me
For putting on those special glasses
See things as they are
Point it out and lose your access
Façade of a brand new normal
Shut your eyes and call it tradition
If you’re wrong about everything
You’ll always have a secure position

Keep your mind shut down and expect me to shut up
You keep your mind shut down and expect me to shut up
Well, it’s too bad for you, ‘cause we’re not going to shut up
Yeah, it’s too bad for you, ‘cause we’re not going to shut up
Here, have some noise.
