Individualism | Song

It’s okay to preach 

that love is all we need 

because at the end of the day 

Only the simple will believe 

Because if love is all I need 

Then why can’t I use it to pay 

For my house, for my car, for my debt, 

To feed my love, to feed my child? 

It’s getting harder to distinguish between 

What they say and what that means 

It’s getting harder to stay silent, violence runs through me 

It’s okay to preach 

That love is all we need 

Because at the end of the day 

Only the simple will believe 

You can tell yourself you’re an individual 

That the things keeping the lights on make you happy 

You can tell yourself you’re invincible 

When you and your fractured community are crumbling 

You’re neo-con neighbor isn’t the end of the problem, you’ve got to realize you’re part of the problem, a consequence of the problem, not divorced from the problem– 

You see me, you see me, do you see me? 

It’s okay to preach 

that love is all we need 

because at the end of the day 

Only the simple will believe
