Why don’t we ever help those we have hurt?
We’re so concerned with what we think we deserve
We all hate each other and no one gives a fuck
Even though we know it won’t do us any good

We’ve reached a point where the idea isn’t important
Where the currency is worth more than the purchase
And our opinions come from the cheap feelings of convenience
That’s just how it goes,
There’s no sign of hope

Why don’t we ever help those we have hurt?
(We’d rather have our hands around someone’s throat)
Everyone hates each other
and no one gives a fuck
Even though we know it won’t
Do us any good

We’re surrounded by prophets
Who think spilling their guts
Is the same thing as giving blood
We’ve eaten all the animals
We’ve burned down every tree
We’ve done so many wrongs
Any excuse for these awful things

While the armchair activists and contrary fanatics
Fight over who cares more about caring less
And some say, a peaceful protest
Is nothing but a white flag,
While others claim they aren’t racist,
Say it’s just the way they were raised
And they carry on and on this way
While we all remain enraged
And nothing fucking changes

This system doesn’t work
The world is better without us
This system doesn’t work
We are better without us
