lyrics

I pledge allegiance to the screen
the conduit of my innermost beliefs
seeking solidarity
to validate the things I've never seen

look at me, so contentious
I'm the poet of my time
writing my convenient
sermons to the choir

is it all for the greater good?
or do we just toe the party line?
fighting the so-called good fight
just so I can get what's mine?

I pledge allegiance to the stage
the means of all my self-appointed guts
bleeding out my policies
fully knowing I’ll survive the cut

look at me, so controversial
I’m the martyr of my time
preaching my convenient
Sermons to the choir

is it all for the greater good?

or do we just toe the party line?
fighting the so-called good fight
just so I can get what's mine?
and just who are we helping?
and what are we fighting for?
fighting the so-called good fight
and maybe you can get what's yours
but only if I get what's mine

I'm living in an echo chamber and I can't get out
