Northmont - Survive (Version 2.0) lyrics

Well, I’m the cold one, seemingly the enlightened one.
But you don’t see me screaming, the frightened one.
Everybody’s rooted therapy; I’ll be your stupid therapy.
All these illusions we’ve created in this life – just to survive in this world.

Well, I’m the bold one, dreaming up irresponsible fun.
But you don’t see me healing the forgotten ones.
Everybody’s useless majesty, everybody refuse this reality.
Is this the consciousness you’ve come to delight in just to survive in this world?

And you sit at home eating McDonalds, you watch the TV gleam.
This maze of websites has you brainwashed, it’s so fascinating.
You don’t see the sun much, see your kids much, you have pay for these things.
To keep up with the Jones’, make them jealous, make you feel so supreme.

Why are you an artist, why are you a seer waiting tables in a daze?
Why are you a dancer, why are you a healer pushing pencils for corporate praise?
Why do you ache for harmony in your prison, freedom from your cage?
Why not lose your laptop and throw away your apron?
There are better ways to survive in this world.

Meanwhile our water is dirty, and our kids shoot each other and we can’t breathe the air.
There’s no place to move, no space to use, and we reproduce as if we’re unaware.
Our fuel supply is almost blown, and the hole in the ozone has grown.
Our oil spills make the dolphins drown, and there’s too much trash to put in the ground.
And you look away and turn off the news; you can’t be responsible for what you do.
It’s all for the quality of life you choose, but when you’ve lost that right what will you do.
What will you do, how will you choose to survive in this world?
