The Ascent

I'm trying to navigate this labyrinth of life

With not even a star light's guide

Swine in suits define the truth
Align with their views or find yourself labeled pariah
I refuse to persecute in this reconstituted union 


I am a pariah

I am a lie; All that's me is fantasy
Driven by addiction and anxiety
Dying to be the best me I can be
But I look into society and all I see is (pain)


Pigs leading sheep in an endless parade
And if you deviate they take your voice away
Ideals thicker than blood and love are the rage
Teaching, feeding, breeding hate


How do I ascend, when the ladder to heaven does not exist?
How do I ascend, when I am just a pig like them?
