Mass Delusion Lyrics

1. Mass Delusion (5:21)
[Music: Vicinity / Lyrics: Olsen & Lykke]

Is our species past its prime,
or does our breed transcend its time?
We're living in a world that's in full decline
Was there anything to die for?
There's nothing left to strive for,
Endless greed was always our defining line

Why should we care what happens next?
Some have billions, while others are wasting away
The ideal is to care, but we aren't self-aware
Will anything keep our greed at bay?

Will I starve while you are eating?
Is basic lust what is defeating
any common sense that might halt this decline?
All-consuming greed
is ever growing like a weed
Our numbers and our minds can't seem to combine

Why should we care what happens next?
Some have billions, while others are wasting away
The ideal is to care, but we aren't self-aware
Will anything keep our greed at bay?

We're lost without a trace
in oceans of self-deluded praise

We're victims of mass delusion
of those who thrive on mass confusion
Can anything be done to stop our decline?
Contrasts are stark
We're always fumbling in the dark,
when we need to see we have to redefine

Will we wake up some day,
and see what facelessness threw away?
It will watch with despise, as mass delusion dies
Take ine step ahead and open your eyes
