Snap Back

lyrics

Don't know what it's coming to but I see the world through different eyes just lately
Seems like we are coming through something of a superficial age gone crazy
People amaze me
Act so hasty
Rest a minute then they call you lazy
What's the game? We've
Gone insane, we're
Chasing money till it brings us pain and

CHORUS
It's so plain to see that we need to
Snap back to reality
It's so plain to see that we need to
Snap back, snap back to reality

Sat back in my living room looking at the TV telling me what to wear I'm
dreamin of another day when I get away from the walls that keep me there why
do I care I'm
so unaware of
the reasons that I sit and stare in
to the scene be-
hind the screen I
long to live inside a tv dream but

CHORUS

Don't see who represents me
Not the TV
Not my MP
Not the MC on the MTV
Talking so big but words are empty
Well he's talking bout cash, he got plenty
Egocentric in an ego century
Make me feel sick but can't prevent me
From advancing my dream of a new reality Where I'm a
Member of a world society and I'll be
keeping my individuality and no I
Don't need religion or creed and I
Don't feed on a culture of greed no I
Just keep on planting my seed
of positivity because I believe that ah
as long as I can still breathe then I can achieve anything I conceive

Cause I'm taking my lead and breaking it free
Taking my mind and making it see
And I'm taking this world and making us peel
All the superficiality back till it's real
I'm taking my lead and breaking it free
Taking my mind and making it see
And I'm taking this world and making us peel
All the superficiality back till it's real
back till it's real, back till it's real
All the superficiality back till it's real yeah

Don't know what it's coming to but I think I might know where it's coming from
Don't know what we're gonna do but I think I might know where we're going wrong
Don't know what it's coming to but I think I might know where it's coming from
Don't know what we're gonna do but I think I might know where we're going wrong
Going wrong, going wrong
I think I might know where we're going wrong
