There's a ghost in the mirror
Oh god - could that be me?
The stench of sweat, the smell of liquor and...
a blankness where a memory ought to be

I feel the weight of their eyes upon me
The expectation growing still
Will I ever live my life my way?
Is this the end I feel?

It's overtaking me
It's now a part of me

Cause my knife is as dull as my fantasies
Cutting off all of my abnormalities
Where do I find the strength to give a shit?
After all you've made me...a god damn drone!

You would have me do as you do
Speak just like you, think just like you
But there's one problem with your plan
I have begun to understand
That you're a kamikaze dive bomb
Hell-bent on destruction
A bold-faced liar
You've mastered obstruction
You shove the biggest piece of bullshit down our throats
And wonder why we refuse to swallow

I refuse to be...a god damn drone!

After all you've failed to make me...a god damn drone!
