glittering upon the ocean’s face…

see those diamonds, see those stars
glittering upon the ocean’s face
that’s what you are in your natural state
but everything is rigged to tear you down
ads to sell you everything under the sun
good, better, best – never let it rest
this whole world wants you to be what they want
market you into some plastic effigy of yourself
mold you into another pathetic sheep
who follows the herd over the cliff
manipulate, frustrate, capitulate
you’ll be so far out of sync
every psychopath’s sales pitch you hear
will seem quite charming…
