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

It's too fucking real, it's blinding
I have to close my eyes
The gun pointed at my head
One too many times but where should I point the blame
Can't tell the truth from the lies
Subservient to and dependent on
The ones that I despise
The contradictions of being alive
In a world life is cheap
Constantly saying please and thank you
Being slapped by the hand that feeds
I have the freedom to do what I want
To work consume and breed
Freedom to believe whatever I want
As long as I'm on my knees
I want to live in a world where I can be who I want to be
I want to live in a world where the only god is me
I want to live in a world where freedoms not a crime
I want to see a world where the guilty are doing time
I still can't close my eyes
No matter how hard I try
Cause this won't fade away
It's not just in m mind
Maybe it sounds crazy
But at least I know the deal
I may have no control
But at least I'm able to feel
Kept on a short leash
With food just out of sight
Contained within this darkness
My masters own the light
Taken in by wise men but always made the fool
Still can't fix our problems because we don't own the tools
