I won't sit back as a daily web of lies is carefully spun from an endless feed of fiction of all the things we're forced to see. It's drilled into society, but I'll never let it pave a way into my home. But to some that door has already opened wide; so easy to fool with such shallow minds. I would rather live on scraps than eat the shit you feed us every day, I'll live amongst the poor and spend my life a king – I’d sooner spend it on my knees than stand for anything you bring.

I think I’m losing sight of all I know; so far from perfect but so close to my home. I feel further away from love than I think I've ever been. I’ve never been more ashamed to say that this is what defines me – blind to what's right, an ignorance to life I never thought I’d see.

Smothered by a blanket of fear and scared to sleep, yet you'll spend your days here living with both your eyes shut. You need to find peace in your own life before spreading hate to the masses through the bullshit you preach. It's answers we seek from prisoners of belief; a never ending war forced from pages of fiction that you choose to read.
