Snappin' the Strings

lyrics

As you walk through your life
Being spoon fed lies
Were you so surprised when they were wrong?
So you crawl to me
I've been waiting patiently
To pull you down and set you free

And all I wanna know is
Why do you insist
On taste testing their sugar-coated bullshit
Why do you vehemently believe
That it's okay to sleep with such hypocrisy?

You claim that science ain't right
Never mind the flight
And the gravity, and the sun
So you read your book
And you never take a look
What's going round in the real world

And all I wanna know is
Why do you insist
On taste testing their sugar-coated bullshit
Why do you vehemently believe
That it's okay to sleep with such hypocrisy?
