Track Name: The Bystander Effect
The cut-out eye holes in your mask
They're windows into your soul
Painting pictures of your past

I’m not a pessimist
I’m just a realist

I fell for my own honeytrap
I swear I saw it coming
I wish I could take it back

There’s no prosperity
I'll never belong here

I've never belonged here
I'll never belong
I've never belonged here

You play your cards close to your chest
Cause’ this is the age of
The 'bystander effect’

I’m not a realist
I’m a surrealist
