The Lyrics

This is uncomfortably close to what I actually live with - i.e. the cops come because you're dressed for comfort and not for style. (Comfort: dark baggy clothing, earmuffs, *ski goggles* (they work better than dark sunglasses and feel nice when it's cold and blowing outside) and a knit hat to cover your thinning hair from the cold)
The sport of reaction, in the crossfire you're a target,
Knife to the throat, every one of them is violent,
You bought their rubbish, and you're tryin'
And when you fail, they say you're lyin',
No matter what you do or how you score,
Failure to conform is named an act of war,

That warfare is everywhere. You can't find shelter here,
Urban, country, suburban, nowhere.
Brain-numbing drip, they got you surrounded,
Crushed, molded, the dogs - you're hounded.
Stimulated fashion drama, Politics are so Obama,
Questioning minds are thought a bore,
Failure to conform is named an act of war.

You'll find no shelter here, Normal people are everywhere.
You'll find no shelter here, Normal people kill when scared.
You'll find no shelter here, Normal people, hatreds glare.
You'll find no shelter here, Normals present, so beware.

Employers demand clon'ed fools, team-players are empty tools,
No need to make a mind that lies, remake the world in warp'ed guise,
Swine keep you calling the score, seeing difference calls for war.

Plant the seed, concoct the waste,
Becoming the image needs just a taste,
The insolence of difference, just make it gone
The crematorium's sanctity smells like hell,
And the murderers whitewash, mindless filler,
And speak of failure as a need for a killer,
Movie-tone propaganda makes for trauma,
No one thinks, just pure reaction drama,
A dream denied tonight, today replaced by gore,
Failure to conform is named an act of war.

You'll find no shelter here, Normal people are everywhere.
You'll find no shelter here, Normal people kill when scared.
You'll find no shelter here, Normal people, hatreds glare.
You'll find no shelter here, Normals present, so beware.

Marginalized, Marginalized,
Morally bankrupt and marginalized,
Labeled stupid, cursed for blind,
And the hassle's designed.
Marginalized, Marginalized,
Morally bankrupt and marginalized,
Labeled stupid, cursed for blind,
And the hassle's designed.
don't dare,
don't dare,
don't dare,
Don't dare - you'll live the nightmare.
Are they needed? You tell me (no, for real, seriously.)
