Paranoid World

We act and talk against each other
Because we live in constant fear
Paranoia grows in every corner
But we ignore what’s next and dear.

We don’t embrace what we like best
We need to yell at different others
We don’t like silence but put to test
The ones that we were used to call our brothers.

This planet Earth is doomed to fail
The experiment of civilization
When ordinaries like to rail
Against logic and calm consideration.

Arguments are always hitting deep
On brains that aren’t used to thinking
They’ll never get the philosophy of Meryl Streep
Instead they’re prone to heavy drinking.

When the universe finally starts to implode
All humans are enemies and couldn’t bother
Fighting on to end this sorry episode
For just one finish: to kill each other.
