Like a Fever

The lie isn't anything new, obviously. And maybe it's no more prevalent now than it's ever been, but it sure fucking feels like it. It's become mainstream, it's accepted, and for the past year or so, it's had an outspoken ringleader. A man that I can't stand. But he's far from the first, or the only. He's just here now, trying to wrest control of the country with a huge heap of bullshit. He's practically made an art out of it. I'm certain that book is coming. How to lie and get ahead. It's honestly everything I hate about society. Dishonesty makes me crazy. 

This song came from that crazy. It feels like a sickness that we all have to fight through right now. The fake news outlets, the twitter wars, the fact checkers.. all of the misinformation and spin that comes to the surface in an election year, it's truly unbelievable, and exhausting. The strangest part for me, is that there just aren't any repercussions. It's becoming normal, there's this terrifying feeling of desensitization about it. Facts don't seem to matter, because they just get made up and then shared and fought over. It's insane. I feel insane. 

I've put my vote in, and I've said my piece. Tomorrow we make a decision, and I sure hope we choose correctly. Please enjoy the music while your party is reached. Share if you like. 

There’s a monster under my bed
Told one lie
Nobody heard it
There’s a fire down there
steel aglow
can’t let go

Washed my hands clean, cracked a smile
said one prayer
I’m a human, you’ll forgive me
They’re just words dear
nothing more
than echoes

I’m a liar
I’m a cheater
guess I caught it like a fever
this is serious
I’m delirious
Crazy

You won't stop me, you’re too nice
Scream and yell
maybe you'll feel better
I’m your martyr
I want more
just let go

I’m a liar
I’m a cheater
guess I caught it like a fever
this is serious
I’m delirious
Crazy
