Lyrics

nothing comes easier than madness
in the world today mass paranoia
is a mode not a malady I'd like
to watch a thousand cable
channels but there's nothing on
and my high speed connection's
monitored daily by the pentagon
these things are seldom what
they seem I'm not inclined to
enjoy my dreams won't go away no
peace and no friends we trace
the mortal edge to state the
obvious this world is perilous
for us no sense and no guide
ain't it beautiful to be alive I
won't resign before the struggle
ends so I'll
construct a sound defense we are
the prey and culture is the
predator I'm running out of time
where conditions are positional
shadows of doubt cast
reluctance and depravity there's
got to be a way to overcome this
grim reality these things are
seldom what they seem I'm not
immune to dispondency there's no
way there's a signpost on the
corner and it keeps everybody
safe we were all made in the
shade and your mothers in the
kitchen where she's patching all
the cracks in the wall we never
had a care in the world too much
to sacrifice (no shade) it's
hard to recognize (no light)
traps and compromise (just black)
obscuring deadly alibis (and
white) It's combinational (my
plans) the pressure so intense
(and designs) when I construct a
sound defense (no way) nothing's
plainer than the madness in the
world today (no sign) I must
conceal myself and steal myself
and break away (no grace) I'll
seek initiative in matters that
are black and white (no sense)
when I construct a sound defense
