Verse1

That old guy told me
That self-improvement’s masturbation
Yet the media gives it total and utter justification
They shove it down our throats, expecting us not to choke
Don’t tell us what we can swallow

It’s not even dark outside
The coloured neon lights
Lighting up the streets and illuminating everything
What do the stars look like?
The blaze has impaired my sight
All I want is a glimpse of what it used to be like


Pre-chorus

NO!
Stand up for the sky
TAKE THE FIGHT TO THEM!
Make it what you want it to be

I!
Will put myself in the firing line
I DON’T THINK YOU WOULD!
I don’t think you would


Verse2

We turned on the radio
And listened for a while
Yet the **** I heard just made me want to smash it right against the ground
It fills me full of rage
I wanna rip out the bars of this ****ing cage
And steal back what dignity we all used to have

Pre-chorus

CHORUS

Take the moral high ground
I just want to be free
I don’t know what its feels like
But I want to be free

any critisism appreciated

the chuck palahniuk line was an instant turnoff. it was too blatant a reference, it just stunk of fanboy. unless this song is actually about fight club, which i wouldnt consider a compelling subject matter anyway.
the rest was pretty standard angry song fare really, verse two being the most textbook with the whole, rage/cage rhyme.
to be honest, the only thing i really liked was the second part of verse one. got your point across in a slightly more original and interesting way.
