Sometimes Selling Out Is Waking Up

This song is by Coalesce and appears on the album 0:12 Revolution In Just Listening (1999).

We take ourselves too seriously.
We sneak as may politics as we can.
But, who will be the last to realize that sometimes selling out is waking up?
So, here we are, two different walks of life crossed once before.
And, it still takes a thousand miles to co-exist.
We are the same, just trying to exist.
If rewritten pamphlets is the best clarity can provide,
Then you need one (a drink) worse than me.
Being delusional, well, that's a whole new bag and it's fine.
It's fine with everyone until you touch them.
(Nothing is said no matter how angry or impassioned it may seem)
And when they finally had enough, they leave.
They leave in fear.
Your legacy will forever be self-righteous and violence against your own.
Against your own.
They can candy-coat their hardline roots all they want,
But, I've seen the tapes.
Don't ever let those clowns define you.
We take ourselves too seriously.
We never leave our politics at home and just live.
There will always be some struggle.
Well, sometimes selling out is waking up.
