Overlooked, overweight
Overworked, underpaid
Over time, start to see
Effects it has on me
Every hour, every day
Every moment slips away
Not a minute my mind’s quiet
I’m living in a poison diet

Poison Diet (x3)

Inactivity has been injected
Leaving us disinterested
Living life seem to despise
Totally desensitized
Never thinking, never caring
Empathy no longer sharing
Too lazy to think to fight it
(We’re) stuck here in this poison diet

Poison Diet (x3)

You look to the sky and get a cold shock
Every single inch of it’s been sold off
Trying to relax you need some fresh air
To your lung’s dismay you find it’s not there
You start to feel faint, your stomach aching
Only pills and fast food are they making
No time to reflect on this disaster
More money you make, you need it faster

Nothing moved, nothing fled
Nothing’s changed, nothing’s said
But it’s not in your head and
Nothing’s done till your dead
What’s the point spend one more day?
Living life this way?
We’re too good to even try it,
We’ll be running from this poison diet

Poison Diet (x3)
We don’t need this Poison Diet (x4)
