DID YOU EXCHANGE A WALK ON PART IN THE WAR, FOR A LEAD ROLE IN A CAGE?
from The Burning Platform That line always makes me think. It makes me think about how the majority of Americans have decided to go along to get along. They trust their government and have willingly chosen to not fight their loss of freedoms, liberties, and rights. They have chosen a lead role in a cage. As long as they can use their credit card to buy shit, take out seven year 0% loans to drive nice cars, and get free shit from the government, they will bow down to their masters. They can’t tell heaven from hell, until they eventually feel the cold steel rail. So, so you think you can tell Heaven from Hell, Blue skies from pain. Can you tell a green field From a cold steel rail? A smile from a veil? Do you think you can tell? Did they get you to trade Your heroes for ghosts? Hot ashes for trees? Hot air for a cool breeze? And cold comfort for change? Did you exchange A walk on part in the war, For a lead role in a cage? How I wish, how I wish you were here. We’re just two lost souls Swimming in a fish bowl, Year after year, Running over the same old ground. What have we found The same old fears. Wish you were here.
