There seems to be a problem, everyday
Pining over things the TV has to offer, or celebrities wage
Don't you try to fix the system, honey
Because it's bound to fall
We'll be sitting at the top of the rubble, thinking we made the right call

And it goes to show
If there's light, then the flame will grow
I've got all I need
In the face of mediocrity
And the stars and stripes
Never rang true to me
Gotta trust and know who my friends are
Gotta trust and know who my friends are

Pushin' hard just to be alive
The fiction's there, and it's all a lie
How bad do people have to suffer
Recognizing the awful buffer
Farewell to the material man
Set sail, gung ho in his oceans of gold
Ridiculous how high an ego can go
Then sink so low with his heavy old soul
