Just to survive.

They put us in a box and tell us they hold the locks and key.
You probably don’t believe me, because it isn’t on your TV.
I’ve got news for you – they control what we see.
As they try to mold our views, the way we act and move.
It doesn’t take a lad from Essex to prove, they’re tryna condition our youth.
Putting dumb fucks on pedestals, now you know the truth.

I know that in this land of tools and regulation it’s easy to feel frustration, but open up your mind, be kind, and you will find elation.
Freedom of expression is the ultimate lesson that you can learn.
So please don’t wait to take your turn, go out and take what you yearn for, as I implore, that is the only way you will soar.
There will be no justice.
There is just this.
Never admit defeat, rise up to your feet and do not play by the rules, in this world ran by fools.
