The Government and Society's Burning Mark
"You wear a mask so long, you forget who you were beneath it."
All Is Lost
Is it another lie?
We loose focus and ask what is what.
It's suffocating us, wanting to die.
Each day waking up,
Thinking about when this is ever going to end.
Want to drain my suffering through a cup.
Chants and rumors are send.
Rules, procedures, or patterns are never bent.
These walls make me want to erupt.
Wear blue and white on Fridays to represent.
My life and my dreams is what I want to corrupt.
The Tribe. Another lost
"People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people" (V for Vendetta). This is a very true statement. A dystopian world can only exist if the people allow it. The government is a large portion of the country but the citizens are a million more. There are two things that man-kind experience or feel in dystopia and that is fear or hope. People don't understand how to release it or learn from it. It's as if they are having their own war between themselves. Fear can be easily gained by anything or everything. It can be from the government holding threats to simply getting sent away for doing something wrong ; mistake or no mistake. Hope is something bigger than fear. They want to believe that someday utopia will begin. The only possibility that dystopia still stands is because fear can overcome hope. The citizens don't realize that they have more control than they think.
The government itself is a dystopia organization. There are many steps and procedures for an organization that big to function. Every detail counts, wether it's big or small. These rules are being analyzed by every chairmen, leader, and speaker. The whole government is gray and disguised in its own way. They prohibit mistakes to be shown. It takes the whole body to think the same; every person to provoke a destruction. There are people who work with the government and they themselves are afraid. They are afraid of speaking their mind and wisdom. A dystopian world all begins with the government.
The world is hopeless, gray, terrifying, and suffocating. We hear trembling marching, horrid chants, screaming pain, and visualize dreams deferred, There is no peace. There is no escape. The only "true" friend you have is your dignity.
