lyrics

Rationalized greed masked as empathy. Your smile was so promising, a thief dressed like a king. Lies begin to grow their own teeth and nails. A mannequin in human form, a plastic soul in a plastic world. It’s hard to keep up with the times, when I don’t want to open my eyes. Take the world for granted, that’s all you can do. Consumption with no end or intent. This is getting to the climax, the inevitable end. (When there’s nothing Left) Does it feel good to live for yourself? Denial has such sweet taste. We can ignore the cancer in the room But it’s seeping into you. We can keep hiding from virtue But time will take us. It’s hard to keep up with the times When I don't want to open my eyes. It’s hard to keep up with the times When I don't want to. You’re a tumor on this earth, you left everyone behind. Traded love for all you’ve gained and left with no spine It’s hard to accept this world i’ve come to know, But I take solace in knowing that you are hollow. It’s hard to keep up with the times when I don't want to open my eyes. It’s hard to keep up with the times when I don't want to. We can ignore the cancer in the room But it’s seeping into you. We can keep hiding from virtue but time will take us.
