The Company We Keep (Systematic)

Distort the mind By their design Won't be denied of our daily bread. Communal pride Recycled life This sheds new light or will we wake up dead? I'm your addict Next in line Would you mind? A staple to the coarse Erased your head. Wind you down And stamped you out You played the fool but who would stop you now? Graced by shame Preordained. Imperative No time to live Replace the skin Does it weird you out? The new regime Planted the seed Would you believe? Would you believe it? Graced by shame Preordained To find that day in the sun With cyanide or a loaded gun Graced by shame. (It's been written) Your life came before you. To find that day in the sun With cyanide or a loaded gun Graced by shame. I'm your addict.
