Video Games & Movies


It’s like we are living in a video game
The things I’ve read, seen and witnessed in a week
Could’ve all been scripted for the next Grand Theft Auto
Senseless acts of violence
Over and over again
Senseless killings
Over and over again
As if people are inept to the five senses
They see nothing wrong with what they’re doing
They don’t hear the cries of the victims
They feel no remorse for their actions
As if the devil has overtaken them
Ravenously seeking out pain and torment that they can taste
And they don’t have any words because their actions speak loudly for themselves

The state of my mental wants to volley back and forth
But I’m not letting it win
My mind is saying drink
Well I’m not trying to be buzzed for lightyears
As we living out a toyed story of how a system
Wants to be our Andy and we should join in and sing you got a friend in me
Nah I’m not doing that, I’m not Woody
We’ve been buzzed for lightyears thinking that things will get better with time
Yeah, too infinity and beyond right?
I watched the same movie
We tired of waiting
We want the change now
And we gonna be the change
