lyrics

You can see right through my cheerful expression.
You can see that there is more there.
I've had a taste of a pill for depression.
The label advises to handle with care.
Its name is ignorance and apathy.
(Take it everyday, keep sadness at bay!)
We can all be happy.
Get rid of your problems and your concern.
(You won't know shit so can't care about it!)
We will never learn.
The problems of the human kind
are weighing down your fragile mind.
It's easier to forget than to think and then to fret.
Leave anxiety to those with piety yeah!
The pill it is growing in popularity
even the media help it succeed.
The side-effects include a loss of humanity
and it increases both hunger and greed.
Its name is ignorance and apathy.
(Take it everyday, keep sadness at bay!)
We can all be happy.
Get rid of your problems and your concern.
(You won't know shit so can't care about it!)
We will never learn.
It is popular amongst the youth.
They lose that drive to find the truth.
The addicts look down their nose
at intellectuals through glasses of rose.
Hey you have heard the news!
Hey you have you seen the news!
Hey you tell me the news!
Ignore the world around you get a blast of the bliss.
Tell us some more rev! Tell us some more!
Take some hits of this to shroud yourself in mist.
Tell us some more rev! Tell us some more!
Don't let the fuckers poison your mind
with tales of pain and homicide.
Don't wallow, just swallow, so you can hide
from this stinking world...
Yeah
No
No
No No No
Yeah
Ignorance
Is creeping up on me!
Coz I wanna
Yeah I wanna happy!
But I wanna
Oh he wants to be clever
To gain some knowledge
What a pointless endeavour!
I need to ditch you coz I wanna be smart
Well we'll just have to split apart!
