Titus andronicus - (i blame) society

I blame society
Society's to blame
I claim society
Is playing a hostile game
Inside my diary
I hide my private shame
And I blame society, society
Society's to blame

I'm not sick, it's the world that is, they're hiding their disease
Behind a giant sign that's twice the size of life as we perceive it to be
This sign I describe, it reads "in silence, you are free"
That's how they try to tie and tightly bind us, reclined in our seats, oh my
They think that we are spineless, I think they are all cheats
It seems the Earth is speeding swiftly towards a grave catastrophe

That's my anxiety
It's the opposing team
To my sobriety
Whose reliable defeat
Is no surprise to me
It's always the same
And I blame society, society
Society's to blame


They provide a dried-out dream, lying through their teeth
I find the one thousandth of one percent are thriving by deceit
Oh, Jesus they supply us meager feedings while they feast in greed
Oh, Christ they prescribe a violent beating ninety times a week at least
They line us up in binaries for psychiatry retreats
Until they finally refine the virus that makes us obsolete

Society, society
Society's to blame
Society, society
Society's to blame
Society's to blame
Society's to blame
Blame, blame society

I'm not sick, the system is despicable and twisted
It's nothing that you can fix with wishes, it tricks you with its little gifts
Then kicks you when you fuss or fidget, picket it or be its critic
The fists will come down vigorously, little bits of it are in you
Bloodstream from a single visit, an isolated incident
Is a thing of fiction, we're all complicit, our fingerprints all bleed

And I blame society
For poisoning the seed
That grew the vilest tree
So we could be its leaves
Inside my diary
I hide my private shame
And I blame society, society
Society's to blame
