Socially acceptable dependencies.
Crippling communities.
Not where you want to be.
Wondering if your hands are bound or free.

As depression is a constant weight
Brought a culture of fucked up injustices, and systematic poverty
Helplessness breeds in a moralist, capitalist society

But it's our wasted time, self worth and potential.
These things take their toll, physical and mental.

It's this cycle of dependency, that keeps us in cages.
Poor, overwhelmed and angry, with numerous chemical chases.

Striving on sickness helplessness breeds.
Organize, destroy.

Permissible addictions as if they like to pick and choose.
A socially acceptable way to escape the anxiety and pressure to find something to do.
And feed yourself as a wage slave, which is a reality they create.

This culture.
Is a constant weight.
There must be a better way..
A better way to shake..

This from -
My Mind -
Organize -
Destroy -

This system doesn't function off of healthy people
Making autonomous decisions for themselves .
This society strives on sickness, sick of heart, sick in mind
Fight this disease we're connected with everything.

If it destroys - Destroy it.
If it's violent - Take it out.
If it nurtures - Take care of it.
If it creates - Engage.
