​Day By Day

This song is by Ballast and appears on the album Sound Asleep (2005).

Well it's too late for an assessment of the damage that's been done and we're too lost in the dark to see what we've all become
So accustomed to the chains that we no longer feel
So divorced from our dreams that they're no longer real
Cultivate this culture of callous cruelty
Safe upon your bloated wealth, I'll gained prosperity
Congratulations all around to the beautiful and free
Who made their fortunes numbing us to this world of misery
Tired of these roles that I've been told I'm supposed to play
But I perpetuate them nonetheless, repeat them day by day
Tired of this happy face that I'm supposed to wear
As I step around the suffering and death that's everywhere
Cultivate this culture of callous cruelty
Safe upon your bloated wealth, I'll gained prosperity
Congratulations all around to the beautiful and free
Who made their profits numbing us to this world of misery
But I'm wide awake and sick from the things I see
I'm wide awake and your clear conscience is cancerous and riddled with disease
I'm wide awake
And sick from the shit I've consumed
I'm wide awake in this sick organism the healthy cell is doomed
