lyrics

I am from the savage land
Where people are born and grow old and die
And I would rather be a savage man
Than be civilized

Everyone belonging to each other
Nothing is wrong but nothing feels right
How can you look in the mirror every morning
After you drug yourself to sleep every night?

I don't belong here
In this brave new world
Where no one cares to learn what love is
And no one questions the meaning of life
I am all alone among the millions
Nobody can hear my cries
What a world we've created
What a hollow paradise

These drugs are not addicting
But people keep coming back anyway
No one wants to look outside the mainstream
So easy to believe what the little whispers say

How do you tell the world that it's been brainwashed?
How do I make them see that they are blind?
How do I reach out my hand to help them up
When I get slapped in the face every time I try?
