Rough Grind – Gilded Cage lyrics

The world has become a reality show
Where a fool sits on the throne
And we're forced to go with the flow

In the afterglow of the golden age
We can't tell the right from wrong
We can’t turn back the page
Our innocence is gone

In this world of hatred and fear
Everything good will disappear

O say can’t you see
This is not the land of the free
You are nothing but a slave
In what once was the home of the brave

You are living in a gilded cage
In the country of the blind
Where they paralyze your mind

Those hypocrite pharisees will do as they please
They're guilty of arrogance in the first degree
