How is this for a quote?:
“The best-adjusted person in our society is the person who is not dead and not alive, just numb, a zombie.
When you are dead you’re not able to do the work of the society.
When you are fully alive you are constantly saying, “No” to many of the processes of society, the racism, the polluted environment, the nuclear threat, the arms race, drinking unsafe water and eating carcinogenic foods.
Thus it is in the interest of our society to promote those things that take the edge off, keep us busy with our fixes, and keep us slightly numbed out and zombie-like. In this way our modern consumer society itself functions as an addict.” – Anne Wilson Schaef
How are these for some song lyrics?:
‘Cause you can’t free nobody else
If you can’t be true to yourself
If you’re looking for a miracle now
Buddy, you better be one
All alone, on your own
How is this for some sounds?:
