Additional vocals on this track by Jay Maas of Defeater

lyrics

Oh, how it sickens me
To have to shake your hand
Just to be met
With your selfish intent
And your ungrateful list of demands
Thoughtlessness runs rampant
Through your dull and shallow mind
But it’s probably more comforting
Than the shit that runs through mine

Sometimes
I wish I had your peace of mind
Oh, to live without a care
Must be so nice
But I’m not satisfied
And I know
I’m not alone

We’re not entitled to anything
So, now what makes you think
That you are any different?
The world’s full of shit
Why keep adding to it?
That’s what got us here to begin with
We are a reflex
A gut reaction
To the pitiful excuse of
“Ignorance is bliss”
People like you are the reason why
People like us exist

Sometimes
I wish I had your peace of mind
Oh, to live without a care
Must be so nice
But I’m not satisfied
And I know
I’m not alone

Maybe I should thank you
Because I can tell you this
People like you are the reason why
People like us exist.
