Why Haven't I?

Inquisitive when caged
And indifferent outside a debt
Why haven't I taken over the world yet?

Thrashing madly on a stage
Without an audience, a band, or set
Why havent I taken over the world yet?

The world is grim
The world's a lie
Just look at him
Look at that guy
He stands on fire
In a suit and tie
Someone else gets higher
Someone else asks why

Vindictive in her grave
An old vendetta robs her rest
Why hasn't she learned to raise her kids yet?

Standoffish you remain
Like an unforgiving pet
Why havent you learned to embrace your end yet?

Our world
