Empathy is being murdered right before our eyes
And we're all letting it happen
I think we all underestimate our own
Capacity to be manipulated
What we call manipulation
Can easily be a delusional person
Trying to convince you of an earnest belief
Just because someone's wrong
Doesn't mean they have to be evil
Just because someone hurt you
Doesn't mean you should make them an object
Of your own psychic torture

Fallacy has been built up a fortress of fragile psyche
And we've all just become passive
I think we all overestimate our own
Capacity to see genuine manipulation
What we call manipulation
Is often too satisfying to our brain things
A dopamine rush to the face
Just because something feels right
Doesn't mean that it's righteous
Just because something feels true
Doesn't mean you aren't being fundamentally lied to

In the end, it is likely
The pain will remain
The illness may never go away
But it's never too late
To escape the existential void you've been led into
By a world hellbent on gaslighting you
Every step of the way
You survived
You survived
You survived
You survived
So why don't you just give yourself permission to be alive?
