lyrics

We always do our duty when confronted with hate
We let everyone know how we feel
Its easier to do than try to educate
So why ever do something real

If one dies its tragic, but a thousand is a statistic
We do our part because we care
So if you haven't heard, we are here to spread the world
A waste of time to say a prayer
We'll save the world by pressing share

Get a sticker that says coexists
But wont give a homeless man a dime
We like to fancy ourselves activists
But prefer TV in our spare time

If one dies its tragic, but a thousand is a statistic
We do our part because we care
So if you haven't heard, we are here to spread the world
A waste of time to say a prayer
We'll save the world by pressing share

I find
That it goes
On and on
On and on
You don a facade of caring
Pretentiously adopt a drop of self awareness

A gun rings loud
It goes viral
So you put on your
Self righteous crown
Crying out to the town
Isn't it such a shame!
Posing humble as your ego inflates

You drop back into your privileged throne
While the rest of the world
Is burning down
Apocalypse party hopping
Never stopping
Always rocking
