Walk Alone - Tom MacDonald

To get where no one goes, you need to walk alone
The only sh_t you know is lies that you've been told
All of the news, all of the rules, everything cool is made up
They want us to lose, we're hitting snooze, we need to choose, to wake up

Man, they tricked us into thinking that the boys are strong and girls are weak
Muscles and makeup is all a man or a woman needs
They use celebrities to sell us clothes we can't afford
To make us feel okay about going broke 'fore we leave the store
Driving home in that luxury SUV
That you don't have no friends to fill so you got all these extra seats
You define your worth by your neighbourhood and your streets
So you're living in the basement half a mile from the beach
The government been talking 'bout microchipping our minds, whoa
And we refuse, then blow a thousand on an iPhone
Most effective way to chip a person is to hide it
And rebrand it so it's cool, call it mobile devices
Taking pills that they talk about in the rap songs
Doctors said they'd make you happy, huh, didn't last long
Too depressed to leave your bed, got fired from your last job
Soon you won't afford the rent and need a couch to crash on

To get where no one goes, you need to walk alone
The only sh_t you know is lies that you've been told
All of the news, all of the rules, everything cool is made up
They want us to lose, we're hitting snooze, we need to choose, to wake up

You finally got the newest Gucci belt, you ain't happy though
Still been super jealous of the couples in the sappy songs
They advertise that money's your saviour
And if you bought into that narrative, you're bound to be failures
We've been tricked into valuing money over our lives
Diamonds rings worth a million while our water's worth a dime
And a diamond has no purpose but looking good when it shines
While our water gets polluted and we need it to survive
Pop culture got you losing your truth, man
Makes whores out of women and turns the dudes into douchebags
Confusing your mood with needing some pills and a new bag
Illusion of choice making us choose to be stupid
We let the music and movies and magazines
Define being successful, we don't know what it means
Got us working overtime to pay for bills we don't need
The system has been paying us to forget our dreams, yeah

It's lies on the TV, it's lies in the paper
It's Devil's parading as if they were saviours
F_ck the whole system, that sh_t isn't real
Bust in the windows and go for the kill

To get where no one goes, you need to walk alone
The only sh_t you know is lies that you've been told
All of the news, all of the rules, everything cool is made up
They want us to lose, we're hitting snooze, we need to choose, to wake up
To get where no one goes, you need to walk alone
The only sh_t you know is lies that you've been told
All of the news, all of the rules, everything cool is made up
They want us to lose, we're hitting snooze, we need to choose, to wake up

To get where no one goes, you need to walk alone
The only sh_t you know is lies that you've been told
All of the news, all of the rules, everything cool is made up
They want us to lose, we're hitting snooze, we need to choose, to wake up
