I can’t fight the world today

hard to say just what it is that keeps you down
inability for compatibility no link to those around
if you don’t partake in social rules
can’t pick up what society rules
as anti-social, unemotional
you’re unsuccessful
cause you’re unpromotionable

man creates a bomb
condemns terrorism
man creates a god
accessible for only some

man is on the death parade
12 seconds and counting
each second is a step to a program
that we failed cause we weren’t not listening

the confusion the delusion and the criticisms they stick
in my skin like steel skin ticket that just wont sink in
soon marketing will be a secondary year school subject
forget English, forget Math
we measure success from the price of your autograph

can’t find the words don’t know what to say
I’ve lost all the pieces to the games you all play
don’t know what to say I can’t find the words
open my mouth but nothing is heard

wait I did, watched my life go by
no reason why, my mouth was dry
nobody told me how to connect,
hence the fact I was left
not in the middle that’d be nice
but in the desolate desert where a sea used to be
so if it rains like a monsoon in June
don’t be surprised if I drown soon

face down in a riverbed
at least that’s what they said
now I just listen to the voices emanating from inside of my head
from inside of my head
I want to cry I wanna shed a smile
but I’m stuck in this human stockpile
and I found no solace in emptiness
no I found no solace in emptiness

ban this anarchic song
ban everything you can
before it’s in the hands
of a certifiable man

failed social behaviour 101, anti-social extremist
using freedom like you use a gun lets see who bleeds the meanest
small percentage on elites who’ll only ever be rich
while the others remain unfulfilled
ain’t circumstance a son of a bitch

X2 I can’t find the words to say
so
I can’t fight the world today

X2 can’t find the words don’t know what to say
I’ve lost all the pieces to the games you all play
don’t know what to say I can’t find the words
open my mouth but nothing is heard

X4 I can’t find the words to say
so I can’t fight the world today

I can’t fight the world today

Artist's Description

this is lyrics from one of my songs, which I like so much that I think the lyrics are probably the strong point of the song as opposed to the music which is fairly basic, but does fit the flow of the song well
