Is it the government, big business, or just me?

lyrics

Emotional Genocide

I need a vacation, need some explanation
How to put my next step forward in my life.
I've been on my hands screaming.
I've been on my knees pleading
The Fifth Amendment to my declaration I'll be fine.
Well I'll be fine.

There ain't no more use complaining,
No matter what they say I'm staying
True to myself, forever in my dream.
Soothed back to sleep, sirens on the street,
Night train, Paris. Dream haunts me.
I'll sleep all day, catch another ride.
And I'll be fine.

I'll rest in peace tonight.
I'll succeed some time
And figure out what's fucking with my feeble mind.
Government? Big business? Or just me?

I'd bring this whole world to its knees
If the credit card people'd stop bugging me.
That's the truth, I don't lie.
Small man, big town.
Try to be a big man, small town clown.
Like a bottle with a meaningless message,
Isolated and forgotten at sea.

I'll rest in peace tonight.
I'll succeed some time.
And figure out what's fucking with my feeble mind.
Government? Big business? Or just me?

I need an explanation, I need a long vacation,
Or one small step forward in my life.
I'd bring this whole world to its knees
If the infomercial people'd stop bugging me.
That's the truth, I don't lie.

I got my pride.
Emotional Genocide,
These demons inside.
I got my pride.
Emotional Genocide.

Trakan Chicago, Illinois

Trakan (pr. 'TRAY-kin') is a community-oriented songwriter from Chicago. A multi-instrumentalist with an obsessive DIY "indie" sprit, his songs are a dynamic mix of stories that wander from love lost and workplace oppression, to innocent observations on the weather - all forged with deep supernatural and psychological curiosity. Female vocals regularly sweeten his impassioned and agitated growl. ... more
