I wrote this song over the weekend, what do you guys think? Any criticism would be appreciated.


You want to escape reality
so you sling a shot or three.
"Because I want to" does not excuse
giving up your ability to choose.

I don't need your mind control- My mind's working fine.
I don't need your mind control- to have any fun!

Mass addiction in our society
is causing widespread apathy.
Don't worry about destruction
of the environment.
All you need to know
is where you're getting your next hit.


I see through the system's lies:
Under the guise of entertainment,
freedom dies.
Drugs and alcohol are commonplace,
making slaves of the whole human race!


I WILL NOT YIELD to the corrupted morals of the masses. I WILL NOT YIELD to mind control through substance abuse. I WILL NOT YIELD to society's pressure to become just another addict. I WILL NOT YIELD!

i think it's pretty good. Reminds me a lot of Gather lyrics. If you don't listen to them definitely check them out, they just released their first full length. Really good female fronted straight edge vegan hardcore with a strong animal, earth, and human liberation stances.

Thanks. :) I don't get ideas for songs often, but when I do it all comes out pretty fast. I had been listening to Aus-Rotten before I wrote this, so that's kind of what it sounded like in my head. Except for the garbled lyrics.
xGriffox, sounds cool, I'll check 'em out.

Thanks, guys. Someone on another forum suggested I delete the middle chorus (actually, somehow in the process of copy-and-paste the last chorus was lost, so he said I should move the second chorus to before the spoken part), what do you think?

I think it's great. Seems like my own lyrics, but maybe better and little bit different style. Reminds me of some oldschool stuff. :)
