amusing ourselves to death

you ain ‘ t taught that you ‘ re locK / d in a box
n the only way out is to change your thoughts .
you ain ‘ t taught that it ‘ s not what you ‘ve got
materially , b / c happiness can ‘ t be bought .
what you ‘ re taught is often not .
what you ‘ ve thought is a fraction of the plot .
you ‘ ve been taught to not question authority .
thinK politicians represent the majority ?
you ‘ ve been taught an edit / d history
that glorifies triumph n downplays misery .
you ‘ ve been taught that the oblong box
in the corner of your room educates your thoughts .
you ‘ ve been taught to trust the experts n
to love the networKs n quote their excerpts .

you ain ‘ t taught that you ‘ re locK / d in a box
n the only way out is to change your thoughts .
you ain ‘ t taught that it ‘ s not what you ‘ve got
materially , b / c happiness can ‘ t be bought .

you ‘ ve been taught to be rich n famous
is more important than an education .
you ‘ ve been taught to trust the government .
history class, democide ; they don ‘ t cover it .
you ‘ ve been taught how to talK ,
where to walK , tell me where ‘ s your thoughts ?
you ‘ve been taught that the afterlife
is why happiness on earth is sacrificed .
what you ‘ ve been taught , what if it ‘ s wrong ?
what if it ‘ s grip slip / d n it was gone ?
you ‘ ve been taught that w / faith in god
you ‘ ll be free from sin , so you ‘ re not wrong .
you ‘ ve been taught that you ‘re the smartest , so
taKe a breaK from thinKing n go shopping .
you ‘ ve been taught they won ‘ t get your brilliance ,
but you were never taught resilience .
you ‘ ve been taught that love is dead n
that price tag represents love instead .

you ‘ ve been taught it ‘ s what you ‘ ve got , materially ,
so suffocate the hate n drown yourself spiritually .
