Lyrics
Just how much of this will you all allow
To go on?
What will it take for you to realize you're wrong?
Oh, so wrong

He fought with him, who fought with her
Who denied her knowledge of what those altercations were
All the lies and the sighs
This was not so reassuring

But all is well and all is merry
Even when the times are scary
Every generation is the same
Resulting in this fear illusion
Is a void that breeds confusion
Leading to a population tame

I understand demand
And know there're no guarantees
But we've been built a world that's full of small victories

I've been waiting for a light to shine my way
Every day
No one understands a word of what I say
"Go away"

"I rule the sun and all the stars"
Say the sons and daughters whose parents bought them getaway cars
To ignore inner war that is building up inside them

From the mountains to the prairies
Everything is looking scary
But the lot around me feel no pain
They live their days in mass delusion
While I coddle my seclusion
Knowing that they're all laughing at Shane

I understand demand
And know there're no guarantees
But we've been built a land that's full of small victories
