Let’s pretend that everything in the world is OK
And the politicians don’t lead us astray.
Let’s pretend that poverty is just a word
And that we are not being treated like a herd.
Let’s pretend that our youth is learning every tool they will need for the future
And that every single evil action has been just rumors.
Let us just pretend that we understand
Everything that is at hand.
But if we pretend
Aren’t we ignoring the end?
Why do we pretend that everything is OK
While our minds are being stave to death?
Why do we conform with what they say
Not just yesterday, but every day?
Why do we foster our own apathy as if it was needed in the future?
Why don’t we remove society’s tumor?
Let us stop pretending
We must face reality and stop the blending.
