lyrics

(chorus)

Tragic actions. Mass distractions.

Trapped in the past need a plan so I hatched it.

Cut to the point. Use your voice like hatchets.

Last shall be first. Let's reverse this status.

Planet's panicked. Plants verse plastic.

Drastic demands. Slam another down the hatch then.

Life's parallel to this art. Cross hatching.

Last should be first let's reverse this status.

(verse)

Surmise from title, I'm liable to cut loose

Inside a cycle of searching and uncertainty seems to fuel

The Tyler Durden of wording in clubs fighting the view

Unusually cruel the news anchors angles obtuse

Dangling strange fruit my ancestors had roots so deep

Turn over a new leaf musing musically

In the land of permanent sleep which is relative to deceased

Cousin order for freedom to ring we need more than these companies

Incorporated, unadulterated latest in fashion

The new National anthem José can you see my mansion

Can't imagine or fathom the impact happens so casually

Gradually disconnected infection spreading so rapidly

Unabashedly open to spreading hope

Wrote this note bottle idle American idols blind to what's vital

The rival school's in the building

And building begins with children

So age is only a number

I've come to recount brilliance

(chorus)

Tragic actions. Mass distractions.

Trapped in the past need a plan so I hatched it.

Cut to the point. Use your voice like hatchets.

Last shall be first. Let's reverse this status.

Planet's panicked. Plants verse plastic.

Drastic demands. Slam another down the hatch then.

Life's parallel to this art. Cross hatching.

Last should be first let's reverse this status.
