just a ride

/the world is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it's real because that's how powerful our minds are. the ride goes up and down, around and around, it has thrills and chills, and it's very brightly colored, and it's very loud, and it's fun for a while. many people have been on the ride a long time, and they begin to wonder, "hey, is this real, or is this just a ride?" 

and other people have remembered, and they come back to us and say, "hey, don't worry; don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride." and we … kill those people. "shut him up! i've got a lot invested in this ride, shut him up! look at my furrows of worry, look at my big bank account, and my family. this has to be real."

it's just a ride. but we always kill the good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? and let the demons run amok … but it doesn't matter, because it's just a ride. and we can change it any time we want. it's only a choice. no effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. 

just a simple choice, right now, between fear and love.

/as soon as you're born they make you feel small
by giving you no time instead of it all
till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all

a working class hero is something to be

they hurt you at home and they hit you at school
they hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules

a working class hero is something to be

when they've tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
then they expect you to pick a career
when you can't really function you're so full of fear

a working class hero is something to be

keep you doped with religion and sex and tv
and you think you're so clever and classless and free
but you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see

a working class hero is something to be

there's room at the top they're telling you still
but first you must learn how to smile as you kill
if you want to be like the folks on the hill

a working class hero is something to be
if you want to be a hero well just follow me
