The Humans' Race

This song is by Sweatshop Union and appears on the album Local 604 (2002).

Inside the place where we hide our face
And try to fake our fate with the faith we place
Inside a world wide race where the humans chase
For more than what we're given

Nowadays people don't talk freely
We walk these streets go home
And not be seen we watch TV alone
Then phone in our orders for Chinese delivery
Closed in out quarters so high we forget that we
Ever knew any better then this
And now we swim in the sewage together in bliss
And it's a sad state of affairs
They're making us scared to even set foot outside our own houses
And now it like every place I look I see
Propaganda from the papers to the books I read
And they're preparing us for a staged terrorist war
So they can centralize the powers and have us scared to the core
My parents ignore it guess it's just too deeply embedded in their heads that the truth is on TV
So breath deep and be free of all this
Civillized society or whatever you call it

Sometimes I get lost in my trips to escapeism
Vision of a world free from pre-born racism
And isn't it a gift how I'm free inside
They can steal a child's mind but never rob him from his light
And some nights we all fall asleep feeling like hypocrites
Say you changed the world but only talked a bit of shit
We all quit on ourselves at one point or another
Suffer bouts of self doubt as we try to recover
But it all starts with thought and talk which leads to action
How far can we be pushed till we respond with reaction
For now I turn my back and all I want to leave behind
Is peace of mind as an illusion of the freedom I can't find

The freedom the freedom the freedom I can't find
The freedom the freedom the freedom I can't find
The freedom the freedom the freedom I can't find
The freedom I can't find
The freedom I can't find

Inside the place where we hide our face
And try to fake our fate with the faith we place
Inside a world wide race where the humans chase
For more than what we're given

Inside the place where we hide our face
And try to fake our fate with the faith we place
Inside a world wide race where the humans chase
And try to take things from the living

"Why yes"
"Just watch who you playing"
It ain't me in a way where the odds are on my side
"Count 'em up"
1,3,5

It ain't beyond on a day
I can't even find my mind
"Help me out"
Be my guide

It ain't beyond on a day
I got no one to blame, I got nothing but shame
And it's a rainy day, I need sunshine
'Cause I'm just one blind man

Nothing left to see and nothing left to say
But nothing left to hear and nothing left to jade
And nothing left me yesterday because I had nothing left to say
Nothing, done up and went away
When the same pain became insane
Picture in the picture frame
You big bitch to plain
Kiss your brain, this love game
Your history maintains loves smile remains

I'll take a leave of absence
With a sleeve of Abstinthe
5 grams of magic mushrooms
And I'll see what happens
And if you need me
I won't be reached
I'll be relaxing
With my feet up
Send a postcard
I'll read the caption
I don't need distractions
Coffee, weed or aspirin
Just open minds and open hearts
So come see us rapping
And when I'm done doing my thing
I won't be a has been
I'll just be done doing my thing
With my seat relaxing

And on the day I die
I can say I tried to save my tribe
Please don't cry
Away I fly where I can play by my rules
And take my time, reach those skies
And on the day I die
I can say I tried to save my tribe
Please don't cry
Away I fly where I can play by my rules
And take my time, reach those skies

Inside the place where we hide our face
And try to fake out fate with the faith we place
Inside a world wide race where the humans chase
For more than what we're given

Inside the place where we hide our face
And try to fake out fate with the faith we place
In a world wide race where the humans chase
And try to take things from the living
