Luke Skywalker had it easy / cause he could feel the force
All I've got is my blood / and regret and remorse
Should I watch that anime? / no it's fanservicey and sexual
But I think it's kind of funny / you're succumbing to the devil
Now I know there is no satan / that ain't part of my faith
The faults gotta lie within me / so I must set my own pace
But it's hard to be righteous / to be kind to be friendly
All at that same time / without it being false and empty

I'm not normally the type / of person to speak in platitudes
But the basis of faith / is transcending our baser attitudes
Our habits, our fetishes / our animalistic instincts
The vitriol of violence / rather than taking time to think
It's a hard life being torn / between progress and regress
I'd like to confess / absolution leaves me possessed
Of a conflict between / there is no gray space or solution
Torn in two by right and wrong / leaving me in confusion

Gonna carry that weight / every single day
Bare the chest to slings and arrows / even though it don't pay
I have to contemplate / just to make my way
Through decisions I am sortin / through a b-tree array

I have trouble passing through / these tests and difficulties
No one else to hold on to / so quick to fall for the sultry
Mixed with the innocent / to confuse my senses
But if I buy in / then I'll be building some fences
Between myself and my beliefs / becoming a hypocrite
But it's such simple relief / just to opt out and quit
Just Control Alt Delete / my super ego for a while
Giving into the ideals / that are totally vile

Selling out my potential / and selling myself short
Destroying my credentials / resulting in a report
In the media about how / Ultraklystron's a punk
All my friends feel betrayed / saying "who have thunk?"
He's a double dirty-dealer / he's like Snidely Whiplash
Templing his fingers / curling a fake mustache
For being a backbiter / not a freedom fighter
An evil insighter / Rather than being the decider
