lyrics

Hey you.
The smartest ape at the zoo.
Yeah you.
You know just what to say, don’t you?
Pollute the water where we commune.

Just reuse
the talking points that are fed to you.
Yeah it is real cute,
you act like the noises your making
are coming from you.
I’d be happy to witness the debut
of anything authored by you.

It doesn’t have to be,
no it doesn’t have to be this way.
Just listen to the words you say.
And if you start to sound like
everyone who shares your view
well then it might not be you.

I know it’s not just you
Everybody would rather have the truth
Brought down from a mount
Than take a chance and look like a fool.
But since you continue
to choose all of your thoughts from a menu,
I’m calling you out.

You reuse
the talking points that are fed to you.
Yeah it is real cute,
you act like the noises your making
are coming from you.
I’d be happy to witness the debut
of anything authored by you.

But you have to think.
Be alone with your mind.
Take up your own time.

You've gotta know
your spreading disease.
Meme decay
is gaining speed.
You listen to those
who are paid to speak
let their turn of phrase shape what you mean.

But it doesn’t have to be,
no it doesn’t have to be this way.
Just listen to the words you say.
And if you start to sound like
everyone who share’s your view,
well then it might not be you.

Be you!
