lyrics

Life lived with blinders on
Only looking out for number one
Radio’s skewed to his point of view
Of the good old days when the good ol’ boys ruled

Winter came, the workplace changed
They’re not allowed to pontificate
Hate speech used to be “shootin’ the shit”
’Til the snowflakes covered their bully pulpit

Trapped in the ignorance
We’re living in our own prison system
Walls up, keep the wolves at bay — barricades, barricades

White flight, a new estate
They gotta keep their little princess safe
Up in the hills with a long commute
No boogeyman to ruin their gorgeous purview

Round the clock surveillance
Keep an eye on seedy elements
You built a fortress to keep us out
Could you ever be convinced that it’s keeping you in?

Tear down entitlement
Superiority’s a prison complex
Privilege was cooked up by the rich — oh, prisoner

Been a long time on the inside
Been a long time locked in our own minds
This is denial, this is our bliss, to live as prisoners
Been a long time on the inside
Been a long time locked in our own minds
This is denial, this is our bliss, to live —
I don’t know how to break out

I was a middle class kid from the middle west
I was the quintessential, sheltered innocent
I didn’t know what segregation meant —
I didn’t have to know — the world I knew
Was white as snow
And so I look back now at these severed towns
All the hate they spread, simply not spreading out
Fuck this denial, fuck their ignorant bliss
