lyrics

What is our Meaning? What is our purpose?
Morals and values contrived

systems used to control and invent realities
realities made for us, not buy us

Social standards and values supporting what?
People fragmented, damaged
severed bonds, no community
devalued, controlled

like the stillness of death, humanity has been levelled
meaning has been removed, a powerless life

a walking dead population
who refuse to become themselves
replacing theism, ‘truth’, and knowledge

mad leaders had provided for us a ‘meaning’ for life
but it was false, full of deceit
something we can overcome, or succumb to

we have the choice to build our own worlds
unfettered by ‘belief’
think of the world that could be

to succumb to the present condition is to give up a chance
a chance to grasp our own meaning, our own lives

the will to nothingness is under control of the world that is

there are other ways of being than what has been offered

our communities, our resources, can define our existence
free our action from unitary paranoia
develop action, thought, desire

juxtaposition, proliferation,
not a subdivision, nor hierarchization
