Are we living in an artificially induced consciousness
That resembles sleep

Are we mindlessly absorbing feeble messages
That redirect our impulses

Are we living in a repressed society
And are unwilling accomplices

Is the intention of the ones who run the show
The annihilation of consciousness

Have we been lulled into a trance
And been made indifferent to others
Being focused only on our own gain

Are the controllers safe
As long as they are not discovered

And are we unwilling to wake up
From our blissful ignorance
Because the truth is offensive to us
