Elephants & Asses

Used to be shackled to the whims & hymns of other stations
Many things weren't adding up, so I changed the equations
Assimilation's a tune I'm no longer willing to hear
I now dance to the beat of my own drum as I steer

Fully aware of the pushback I'll receive if I don't believe
Inherently granted free will and I will not take a reprieve
Four eye see reality in lights previously shadowed
The box in which I use to reside inside is now hollow

No longer can I swallow what's given for consumption
I've awakened from the slumber of hibernation
Frustration's erecting as I'm inspecting narratives
Detesting the situations in which some have to live

If it's better to give than to get, why are projects in shambles?
Were they blowing smoke up our ass when writing the preamble?
Were words just rambled without intent to implement?
Does the government give a damn if you can't pay your rent?

Dollars and cents represent prosperity all around
Forget giving recompense to those you've pushed down
Does that sound about right for the mentality of the masses?
Following in line with the might of elephants & asses
