Run Wild So Vile

They want me to be so angry
they want me not to realize
they want me to let emotion
run wild so vile

Rationality is culpability
daring to think or feel so clearly
is such a terrible thing
look at the shiny bauble upon the floor

They want me to be so ignorant
they want me not to comprehend
they want me to let emotion
run wild so vile

and they say I am so naive

Brown water, then bomb brown people
down slaughter, then deny the burning
hire only the best, fire only the best
intimidate the rest, denial circumspect

They want me to look the other way
they want me not to dare and say
they want me to let emotion
run wild so vile

Intelligence is an act of evil
ignorance equals bliss, it’s all there is
pathway to be among blessed rich
look at all the red hats twitch

and they say I am so naive

They want me not to mind the bile
they want me to be so thankful
just cause my skin is pale
run wild so vile

stacks of cash and my loyalty asked
behold the wrong wish their mouths aghast
They want me not to say these words
but all these words have been so writ

run wild so vile
(ignore the shill)
run wild so vile
(fire up the drills)
run wild so vile
(perturb the ills)

run wild so vile
(deny the pretense of fact)
run wild so vile
(dare to smile all the while)

yet I am so naive

run wild so vile
(these piece don’t fit)
run wild so vile
(no matter how they force it)
run wild so vile

yet I am so naive

run wild so vile
(so naive to say)
run wild so vile
(ignorance is policy)

yet I am so naive
