Society Is a Disease

Society is a disease, and we've all got it

It's destroying each of us, bit by bit

"The only one you need to please is you"

Words spoken so wisely, yet they seem so untrue.

Teenagers with growing angst in their eyes

Vulnerable to all of society's lies

Society is a disease, and we've all got it

It's destroying each of us, bit by bit

The people strive for perfection

But they're only building themselves up for society's rejection

We live in a society where money talks

And can buy you promises that are really faux

Society is a disease, and we've all got it

It's destroying each of us, bit by bit

No cure will ever be found

We must close our ears and block the sound

Realize that everything is fake, except for you,

And vow to always remain true

Society is a disease, and we've all got it

It's destroying each of us, bit by bit

Let's rise above and abolish it

Before we allow it to bury us deeper into this pit
