lyrics

[Verse 1: int eighty]
Behold the smoke and mirrors see I'm through with the illusion
Minds losing any clue when the confusion's so abusive
The scapegoats are flamed when these idiots blame
I just disregard the ratings on my video games
These are red herring flaws in the links that they claim
Is it too much to ask for them to think with their brain
And when net neutrality fails for the internet
Expect your propaganda to receive the same censorship
Battles we fought and the casualties lost
Still they're blasting off bombs into traffic or cops
So just think about reactions when the catalyst stops
We see the same end if it's faster or not
Cause it's so frustrating when these activists talk
Like somewhere's a solution in a magical box
Can't understand why I'm having these thoughts
Battle back, shatter tracks when the reality's lost

[Verse 2: Ill Poetic]
Let me tell you on the low-low spot, that
My reality is Photoshopped, and
All these thugs are just photo ops
So I try to hide my eyes like Robocop, now
Yeah, I wear my sunglasses at night
Trying to find some rum and some blunt ashes on sight
The most beautifulest scenery I ever seen
Is a jpeg on my computer screen, and
I don't want a show I want my MTV and
I don't want a song I want the MP3s and
I don't want to know how to feel
I just want the powder and the pills and
I don't need to know my neighbor
I got a simulation game where I can make a
Cliche, I'm just trying to keep it real
Long as I got some real feel I'm good

[Verse 3: int eighty]
Where do I start again, specified targeting
Reactionary charlatan, vocabulary artisan
While people kill others in assertion of martyrdom
We nitpick politics and split by partisan
What should I conclude, did you tell me the truth
Was it a hoax for when I vote or when I step in the booth
Is the middle class more than what celebrities do
Will you represent the youth when the election is through
I don't recognize the names at the top of the game
But we complain all the same for a positive change
So they let the chads hang while they're calling out claims
There were more votes for the All-Star game
Home of the bravest, every citizen's duty
Spending less time on politics than watching a movie
I want to leave the Earth as somewhere better to live
Do you even know who your representative is
