Another Number

Stare at the sun but don’t burn your eyes

It’s like the lies they told you as a little child

Give up some they sooner take it all

Should be more than enough

But the portion’s too small


You believe all the shit you’ve heard

Well it’s on TV it must be true

Oh my boy don’t be absurd


Think it’s time for the hammer to fall

Onto us all

So very small


Look into those eyes what is it I see

Another insane face looking back at me

Look into the sky do I think I’m free

Or just another number

Drowning in a sea
