I don't want to see it
But that choice is never mine to make
Because everywhere I turn
There's something telling me who I am
What I should think and what I need to do
To do to be accepted, to do to be a man

With new billboard screens
With text as big as me
Because we all know
Your brain reads every word you see
Demographics show
We're incapable
Of thinking alone
If that's true, then who are we?

Identity in question
Who would we be without the influence
Of things that we don't need?
So analyze, re-naturalize
It's foreign to think, but ask yourselves have we
Have we ever really relied on ourselves?

Athletes and all of their sponsorships
Saying that we're all talentless
That we could never win
Unless we have all of their logos
Tattooed all over all of our clothes
We're doing ourselves in

Then I want out

Now we're walking billboards
Oh, what great advertisement
You support a product
And now we're products ourselves

Well I want to change
I want to go my separate way
Are we too far gone
To live our lives on our own?
