Actual life! Actualize... actual life. Actual life... actualize... I just want to! Actualize... actual life... actualize... actual life... actualize... actual life...
I was rolling through the backstreets.
Looking at the black sheep. Trying to enact me.
Everybody want to be somebody that they can't be.
You can only be who you are neath the candid candy.
Canvas. Empty like our planet.
That we keep exploiting. Making our own void in.
Artificial black hole. Sounds like a toy but
All we are is poison. All we do destroooy!
But I don't want to be the bad man!
Smacking the world with my backhand.
I want to start a whole new program, program the code and
Make it our new system. Make them all listen.
I don't want to be controlling,
I just want the soul in my body to be whole
And I behold this world - it spins out of control
Some days I don't want to care, want to let it go I just want to...
( Actualize... actual life. x4 )
I was roaming through the badlands.
Looking at the cool dude. Wanting to be that man.
Why is there programming in us to be bad and
Break things down, till our ground's one we can't stand.
There's radiation in our soil, every nation wants employ.
We're digging our own grave with this radium ploy.
Used to be we spoke but I don't notice any longer
We just want to be bespoke and monger
Handling! Should be done with caution!
Carving out our hearts to get a handle on our saucing!
Material offspring! Generation awesome!
Generate a fat check! Let us all soften
Till we're all heaps of a blubber filled!
With ill will! Forget the juggalos and freedom gilts, like Ill Bill!
Those who speak what no other will! Like Rugged Man,
Come on over to the other land - we're all brothers and
( chorus )
I was throwing up the Last Dab!
Don't know why I torture myself over that bag!
Do I want to be a martyr if I can't make a difference?
Shifting on the chair in my plane of existence.
Flying up North again to farm and have a fun time.
I don't want no silver and no gold still I run mine.
Value's in the Earth, in our water and our fresh air,
Strong when I stand out. You cannot be less here.
Because here is awesome!
Because here we live for real!
Because here there's no fakery!
Here there's no ideals!
Here there's just survival!
Here there's just revival!
Here just makes you smile all day
Always all's tough but all is GREAAAT! YEAAAH!
Everything's so petty when you step out of your head!
Everything's alive when you leave all that is dead!
Our structures of plastic and metal - no shortage!
Nature's just buried in our belly and we're married to the telly
And the mainstream! Damming up the main stream!
Realize that it makes seem like we're all lazy?
Meanwhile why are we more stressed up than ever.
Calm down look around and do better - realize you can
( chorus x2 )
I was roaming round the city! Everything was vile and gritty!
People say that it's bright and pretty!
See the neon signs shining - undermining all the starlight?
Ain't that a pity?
Wonder if I'm just cynical, wonder if I'm negative,
If I'm anti everything they let us build,
Anti all our progress, anti all achievement,
I just can't see how the streets keep us breathing!
Feel one day we'll choke on our progressive fumes!
Hope one day we'll find a new reason to get into!
That one day our whole future will look a bit different!
Anti-establishment, management, prison!
Pro all choice, all voice, all children!
So no more coy politics, antics, religion!
No more destroying everything that we're always building,
Since people want to both live in AND break the system
Wouldn't that be the vision?
The dream. The thing we're always missing...
Me? What do I want to do?
( chorus )
