your change is in the wrong pocket

you wrapped all your insecurities inside boxes
check marked labels pleading to be sold an individuality
the company will provide your personality
that's not quite as unique as you think
as your being sold everything including the kitchen sink
packaged & shipped straight to your instaham feed

these habits, they're obnoxious
we used to fight for the exact opposite
but nothing's really changed besides the dialect
marketing towards a fresh, new audience

it's more of the same are the people to blame?
the one's manipulated to play the game?
assaulted from birth to feel the shame
if they're not sporting designer brand names

it's a trap that keeps you in debt and
yer damn right the banks will collect
on your 40 hour a week plus paycheck
playing on your researched animal instincts

these habits, they're obnoxious
we used to fight for the exact opposite
but nothing's really changed besides the dialect
marketing towards a fresh, new audience

stop looking to the shelves for representation!
stop looking for corporate validation!
sold to every generation!

these habits, they're obnoxious
we used to fight for the exact opposite
but nothing's really changed besides the dialect
marketing towards a fresh, new audience
