Beaten Path

lyrics

Told how to act and what paths we should choose.
I got off their track. I won't be barked at with rules.
Intolerant to change, big words don't make you bright.
Just because you yell louder doesn't mean that you're right.

They mold young minds. My mind is far from a youth’s.
They can't tell me how to live when their perception is skewed.
Because I see this world for how it really is,
You can live your sheltered life while I still see it as shit.

I can see in their eyes that they still have a closed mind,
Why should I choose to listen while they still choose to act blind?
Spewing off opinions, I've grown hostile and tired.
Just quit while you're ahead, you're adding fuel to this fire.

Read between the lines.
Nothing spoke to me.
Still saw no signs.
There's nothing there that I need.
I still feel nothing.

I'll weed out the weak. Only the strong survive.
If you reap what you sow, you're at the front of the line.
You tell me my future and then you number my days.
Well, we'll see who gets the last laugh when I spit on your graves.

They mold young minds. My mind is far from a youth’s.
They can't tell me how to live when their perception is skewed.
Because I see this world for how it really is,
You can live your sheltered life while I still see it as shit.

This burden is mine. I bear the weight of all man.
I'll waste my hopeless soul on these eternal sins.
This life is pain. It brought me to my knees.
My past made my future. The devil walks with me.
