lyrics

Every morning you look in the mirror
Think to yourself “Well hey, did you lose weight?”
Turn on the news and listen to the talking heads
Spoutin’ bullshit about how your country’s great
You go to work at a dead-end job
And tell your boss that you love it there
With a face that says your personally invested in the cause
But inside you know you just don’t care

We’re all just a bunch of mannequins
Fake-ass stand-ins for a human heart and soul
When did lying through your teeth become the social norm?
Why can’t we be ourselves? Why can’t we tell the truth?

When you’re in charge of your own life
You’re expected to act a certain way
And the moment that you break rank and try to mix it up
You’re the misfit that everyone hates
If you think that people care ‘bout what you think
Take a seat and pay attention for a master class
It doesn’t matter how you really feel,
People want smoke blown up their ass

We’re all just a bunch of mannequins
Fake-ass stand-ins for a human heart and soul
When did lying through your teeth become the social norm?
Why can’t we be ourselves? Why can’t we tell the truth?

Whatever happened to genuine?
That’s all I aspire to be
And I know there’s gotta be a few of you out there
But it seems like we’re a dying breed

We’re all just a bunch of mannequins
Fake-ass stand-ins for a human heart and soul
When did lying through your teeth become the social norm?
Why can’t we be ourselves? Why can’t we tell the...

We’re all just a bunch of mannequins
Fake-ass stand-ins for a human heart and soul
When did lying through your teeth become the social norm?
Why can’t we be ourselves? Why can’t we tell the truth?
