Track Name: I Must Insist
We are a process-driven pack of savage beasts
a bunch of alkaline, opposable-thumbed, mercantile freaks
No caped crusader there to peel away the leech
So the parasites are fattened with the marrow of the weak

They say is your life feeling stagnant?
Is your sense of purpose absent?
Did some juvenile delinquent
Get your teenage cousin pregnant?
Are you staring at your lunchbox seeing omens in your sandwiches?
Please observe this picture. Can you tell me what this is?

I must insist
I must insist you ask for better of your boyfriend
I must insist you live for more than just the weekend
I must insist you watch your language with the kids

I must insist

I must insist that you destroy your television
I must insist that you command your own existence
I must insist you throw your smart phone off a cliff

I must insist

You are constructing an elaborate persona by projecting a selective line of digital positioning
You were born into an augmented existence that your ancestors would fail to comprehend you could be living in
You are competing in a rat race of the anecdote, a mirrored hall of spin that fosters insolence and hubris
You are collapsing in the fact of self consumption that will venerate the turkeys who high-fived and said "let’s do this"

Please observe this picture. Can you tell me what this is?

I must insist
I must insist you ask for better of your girlfriend
I must insist you live for more than just the weekend
I must insist you watch your language with the kids

I must insist

I must insist that you destroy your television
I must insist that you command your own existence
I must insist you throw your smart phone off a cliff

I must insist

I must insist that you dissect your evolution
From the Parthenon of Athens to our learning institutions
I must insist that you should turn the cushions over and collect up all the pennies from the crevice of the sofa
And then I must insist you pay attention to the people
Who control the world around you and play Rummikub with evil
I must insist you are not blissfully oblivious to the writing on the wall

I must insist
I must insist you ask for better of your boyfriend
I must insist you live for more than just the weekend
I must insist you watch your language with the kids

I must insist

I must insist that you destroy your television
I must insist that you command your own existence
I must insist you throw your smart phone off a cliff

I must insist
