CAUGHT IN THE UNDERTOW

I still remember 

What it felt like to be afraid 

Fight or Flight response  

The hunter and his prey

Primal instinct

Makes you feel alive 

Now we're orchestrators 

Of our own demise 

 

Caged by fear 

In case the act is misconstrued

Force fed paranoia 

Reality is skewed 

One mistake

And your whole life will be destroyed

Face reality 

Or fall into the void?

Caught in the undertow 

Spinning around

Holding me down

All the time constructing 

Visions of perfect lives

A carefully planned illusion

Designed for jealous eyes 

Drowning in a sea

Of false sincerity 

Live each moment 

Or record for posterity?

Caught in the undertow 

Spinning around

Holding me down

And maybe it's all just fantasy

It's always better looking back

But I can't help but feel 

That all the progress made 

Is forever lost

Communication 

Fast becoming a lost art

Never closer together 

Never more apart 

Risk free living

Is not all it's cracked up to be 

A backwards step

For such an advancing society  

Caught in the undertow 

Spinning around

Holding me down
