MIND GAMES
(every cell of the mind is alive, but separated... they can't think, and together... they can blow minds)


doesn't the madness bother you?

madness
as you close your eyes
to your own heart

madness
as you close your mind
to your own part

madness
as you close the book
on humanity

madness
as you close the door
on eternity

and what do you do with the energy
do you think you're immune to feeling
just because you choose ignorance
and fear over love

and what do you do with your sanity
do you think you can fool everyone
just because ou can buy a good mask
and a god above

do you think that gives you a bye?
do you think nobody sees your lie?
do you think nobody hears you cry?
even if you don't
even if you won't
you do

when you slow down to see the accident
what are you really looking for?
when you recycle your daily trash
do you know how much you ignore?
when you lay yourself down to sleep
do you feel how alone you are?
when you make love do you make love
do you get anywhere near that far?

do you do what you're supposed to do
according to the social controls
do you realize how much you lose
the feelings are just the first tolls
just because fear is so acceptible
when you pray and give up life's pleasures
  do you ever wonder...
who else is buying souls?

you pray to your god
you create a world of pain
you blame it on your devil
and sacrifice your brain
if you thought for a moment
about what might make sense
you might understand
the real expense

giving up individuality
for conformity
keep is superficial so no one can see

giving up your sanity
for promises of what might be
keep it covered so no one can see

it just makes you easier to control
that's the outcome
but who's goal?

it just makes you easier to control
sounds so dumb
who's in control?

pay your taxes, there's a lot more people to kill
pay your till, some need you try to fulfill
pay your master, and believe what you will
pay your tithe, you've got to do more than pray
pay your body, you're afraid to use it anyway
pay your soul, the energy just gets in the way
pay your way, as if you can buy what is true
pay your life, doesn't the madness bother you?

madness
as you close your eyes
to your own heart

madness
as you close your mind
to your own part

madness
as you close your soul
to the energy

madness
as you close the loop
of insanity

madness
as you close yourself
to all you could see

madness
as you close yourself
to all you could be

madness
as you close the book
on humanity

madness
as you close the door
on eternity
