If we could see ourselves, the mirror would reflect insanity
Instead we camouflage the flaws that lie within
Condone the suffering we witness as we mingle casually
We need to right ourselves, or else we will derail

Aiming too high
You are bound to fail
Patience is a vital virtue
That you'll never have

Don't force me to believe
We're caught up in the greed
'Cause I just care for me
To break it, we'll need everyone
Think it through: unite is the only way

A raging tragedy ignored will have it's justice, finally
Distress and poverty is everyone's disease
We'll come to realise for all we've done
There is a price to pay
Yet hope is never lost, there always is a way

Trumping the game
Is no easy way
Enterprise and discipline
Will pay off in the end

If we ever could look into fate's mirror
We would never have ended up here
We're distracted by every sin committed
It should always be ever so clear

If we ever look
We would never be here

Don't force me to believe
I'm never needing anyone
I only care for me
I'm thinking through
And mine's the only way

We are caught up
In our failure
Now our union
Is our savior
It's the only way

If we ever
We would never
If we're clever
We're together

    The name is self explanatory; it's a deconstruction of human nature. We protect ourselves from the aspects of our personality we deem to be inhuman through perverse justifications like "it has nothing to do with me". The only way to break this habit is through major sociological change. In other words, everyone needs to be willing to out in the effort to make our world a better place, no exceptions.
