Verse 1

I look around,
And I have found,
It's the same face,
In every case.

It's such a shame,
You're all the same,
It's sad to watch,
It will not stop.

Chorus

Am I the only one,
That thinks this is wrong?
Because I look around,
And I have found:

Everywhere insanity,
No single identity,
Lost individuality,
Identical humanity.

Verse 2

Do you not see?
You're the same to me,
You do not realise,
There is no compromise.

You are unique,
Different underneath,
Can't you rip off this,
Lying physique?

[ Solo ]
Chorus

Am I the only one,
That thinks this is wrong?
Because I look around,
And I have found:

Everywhere insanity,
No single identity,
Lost individuality,
Identical humanity.

Matching personality,
Lying facial complexity,
Where's eccentricity?
What's happened to everybody?

It's madness to me,
Uniqueness is lonely,
It's so sad to see,
Everywhere insanity.

I liked the topic you chose to write about, on a basic level I agree with you, nowadays if you want to be an individual it seems you wear your baseball cap the right way round, don't get any tattoos or any piercings (especially in the belly button).

It would be nice though to see you develop this more, they are good lyrics but perhaps more can be said with less words??

Thanks for sharing T!

I agree with Alex, I like the topic but the substance of these lyrics is lacking. There isn't enough here. Youw would benefit by developing this more, stretching it out a bit and reducing it in other areas like this one:

"Everywhere insanity,
No single identity,
Lost individuality,
Identical humanity."

which seems like you're saying the same thing 3 times in a slightly different way.

This will be solid with a re-write.

I like the subject matter as well as the way you put it across. The only criticism I would have it that it somewhat lacks "punch" - somewhat a plaintive "look at what's going on", rather than a ranting "LOOK AT WHAT'S GOING ON!". Then again, I have a lot of repressed anger ;-).

All over, a very good piece.

Thanks
Thanks a lot for the comments.

I'll put the mp3 of me playing the song on my site and link to it, is that allowed? *is unsure*

It's a rock song by the way.
