Manifest Destiny

from The Litterbox Sessions by Cat Heaven

lyrics

If you go by the book
you'll become illiterate
if you don't believe me
look at the life your stranded in
endlessly working
to justify the means to your end

you've got to fight to stay alive
this has led to compromise
in order to save one's dreams
some have followed shadowy schemes
where they forgot their humility
they forgot the person they were trying to be

Chorus:
Do you even believe any of the words that you sing?
cause i find it discomforting that you conduct such symphonies

well it was so exquisitely done
the way you lied to everyone
you made them feel so special
before you had them unstrung
re tuned to the sound of your own drum
to fit your conclusions on how this life is won

yet you are so damn convinced
that nothing good could ever exist
that's why you take whatever you grip
that's why you feel so dissed
you feel so bright
a shooting star that never gets it right

chrous

bridge:
You can't reap what you sow
You can't reap what you sow
You plant the poison but it won't grow
You can't reap what you sow

It wasn't easy to be mean
it was just all you'd ever be
unfortunately this was your Manifest Destiny
