Burning Out

This song was created for Game of Bands round 250 : "Mods vs. Everyone"

Lyrics:

I'm stuck in a circle
an orbital drain
Passing up dreams
again and again
The pills make me foggy
I'm numb and I'm dumb
My shanty is a mess
and I've drank all my rum
Forget all your troubles
Forget all your past
Is what the therapist told me
So I kicked his ass
Threw me in the psych ward
and I had a blast
the drugs were way better
I had a free pass

Our days are running out
I shouldn't drown them out
Head like a rolling pin
Flattening out what we pretend is
a perfect fucking life
just a facade to conceal our strife
No riches could pull me out now
No wonder I'm burning out now

Willfully brain dead
Don't be so naive
What's really happening
Who do we believe
The pills make me foggy
I'm numb and I'm dumb
Turn on the TV
Lock up the guns
My brain is draining
Through my ears
From everything I hear
My greatest fear
Is that I’m already done for.

Our days are running out
I shouldn't drown them out
Head like a rolling pin
Flattening out what we pretend is
a perfect fucking life
just a facade to conceal our strife
No riches could pull me out now
No wonder I'm burning out now

No wonder I’m burning out now.
(I mean, come on, no wonder)
The days feel so fast and so slow,
And at this point, I don’t know
If it’s my pills or what’s actually in my mind.
Is everyone feeling this?
(You’re alone, it’s just you)

They want to shut us up
Free thought is diseased
put your mind in a cage
and program it as they please
They want to strip us bare
Coming in for the kill
We are all sitting ducks
Enjoy the pills enjoy the pills

Our days are running out
I shouldn't drown them out
Head like a rolling pin
Flattening out what we pretend is
a perfect fucking life
just a facade to conceal our strife
No riches could pull me out now
No wonder I'm burning out now
(Our days are running out)
No wonder I'm burning out now
(I'm burning out)
[Exit]
