I Walked Into Staples And Was Blinded By All Kinds of Shiny Things
Rely

I walked into Staples and was blinded by all kinds of shiny things
 1
Everyday they throw more pretty things into the fish tank
 2
You follow them like baitfish
 3
You swallow them in anguish
 4
You’re losing, losing everything
 5
Don’t let the bad guys win
 6
So many choices so little choice
 7
Crippled death by artificial voice
 8
You’re not what they’ve made you think you are
 9
And you’ll never ever ever ever ever be a star
 10
Unless you sell your soul to the man in the black hole
 11
But he’s already dying ‘cause the monkey caught him lying
 12
You watch your life drift away you let them take it all away
 13
The crapshoot called religion won’t save you anyway
 14
Away with you, away with this
 15
Exiled upon sacred ground
 16
Your birthright stripped for thee were proud
 17
And tho you may despair aloud
 18
You won’t be free till she is found
 19
So rest my king and dry your eyes
 20
For theirs is power built on lies
 21
And yours is love they can’t pretend
 22
So vanquish darkness once again
