Hope Projects

from No Sense by Ryland Bouchard

/

lyrics

pile up a mountain of needs
label trash from sea to sea
everywhere you walk through smoke
choke on food you eat to cope

populations buying time
with over the counter remedies
morphine codeine / walking disease
spreads through the city streets

the FDA counts the pills
to keep all men sitting still
ritalin / brain defects
modern days we buy our death

rest peacefully on elected men
a shadow box of hope projects
wages fall / markets fail
bailouts for all the richest men

cities built on landfills
all your income used for bills
cover up your home with waste
the compost pile of the human race

consumption doubles every year
the more you use the less you fear
percocet / valium
now sleep walk sleep talk

anxiety mixed with OCD
depression fights your will to be
cancer / heart attacks
modern days we prescribe our deaths

rest peacefully on simple thoughts
a shadow box of hope projects
spirits fall / health fails
bailouts for all the weakest men

society wades in shallow thought
all its virtues hollowed out
protest is a fashion belt
all its methods worn out

destruction of defenseless land
democracy is the peaceful hand
napalm bombs / IEDs
if you don't - you will believe

religious pundits push for war
a pro-life stance they must abhor
birth control / free press
modern days we define our deaths

rest peacefully on moral grounds
a shadow box of hope projects
nations fall / reason fails
bailouts for all the righteous men
