stupid @ 01:41 pm

golly
people are so stupid

i mean
as a People
we've managed to have at least 2000 years of recorded history
(not to mention asian histories, which "we're" only a fringe of at this point, though many of "us" fear that we'll be swallowed by their story, which wouldn't be horrific as far as i'm concerned)
where we've learned nearly nothing
oh sure
we have digital watches and computers and fancy cars
but we're always lying to ourselves
and those we love
and seeing how many people we can fuck over
blah blah blah
you know the horror of western civilization

and most people i know just never learn
they're hardly there
they don't pay attention
it does not inspire Life in me

however
i occasionally meet people who Learn
which astounds me
i mean
i count myself as Stupid, just like the rest of US
i've always hated arrogant artist fucks who believe they're somehow in the elite
yet i am impressed when i meet people who appear to have actually learned from their mistakes

maybe they just have more charm than i

I'm going to a town that has already been burnt down
I'm going to a place that has already been disgraced
I'm gonna see some folks who have already been let down
I'm so tired of America

I'm gonna make it up for all of The Sunday Times
I'm gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
They never really seem to want to tell the truth
I'm so tired of you, America

Making my own way home, ain't gonna be alone
I've got a life to lead, America
I've got a life to lead

Tell me, do you really think you go to hell for having loved?
Tell me, enough of thinking everything that you've done is good
I really need to know, after soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood
I'm so tired of America

I really need to know
I may just never see you again, or might as well
You took advantage of a world that loved you well
I'm going to a town that has already been burnt down
I'm so tired of you, America

Making my own way home, ain't gonna be alone
I've got a life to lead, America
I've got a life to lead
I got a soul to feed
I got a dream to heed
And that's all I need

Making my own way home, ain't gonna be alone
I'm going to a town
That has already been burnt down

I've been there, most of the town's got gentified, try not to puke.
A petition said support the insects, they were hear first.
Mercenary politics, the biggest asshole gets the most money.
Look at all the people who paid him to fuck them over.
As for the host culture, you can grow pinworms in a culture.
I missed the bus Tuesday or I would have burn it again.
Sit down. Shut up. Turn on the news. Have a drink.
It isn't going to get any better, it doesn't get better than this.
