Disillusioned

Album: Eat the Elephant (2018)
  • Dopamine, on dopamine, on dopamine, on dopamine

    We have been overrun by our animal desire
    Addicts of the immediate keep us obedient and unaware
    Feeding this mutation, this Pavlovian despair

    We've become
    Disillusioned
    So we run
    Towards anything glimmering

    Time to put the silicon obsession down
    Take a look around, find a way in the silence
    Lie supine away with your back to the ground
    Dis- and re-connect to the resonance now
    You were never an island

    Unique voice among the many in this choir
    Tuning into each other, lift all higher

    Hey, how long? Oh

    Dopamine, on dopamine, on dopamine, on dopamine

    Willingly been re-wired by clever agents within
    Looping our reflections, our obsessions draw us in
    Fix and fixation, no sentience beyond

    We've become disillusioned
    So we dive like crows towards anything glittering

    Time to put the silicon obsession down
    Take a look around, find a way in the silence
    Lie supine away with your back to the ground
    Dis- and re-connect to the resonance now
    You were never an island

    Unique voice among the many in this choir
    Tuning into each other, lift all higher Writer/s: Maynard James Keenan, Billy Howerdel, Dave Sardy
