    This is hell in paradise
    We're all asleep or paralyzed
    Why are we scared to verbalize
    Our multicolor dreams?

    When will we come to realize
    We're all stoned or pacified
    While the boogie men organize
    Their multilevel schemes

    Underqualified for love
    Overqualified for life
    Sticking our heads in slime
    Thinking we're in our prime

    Mesmerized by mythology
    Hypnotized by ideology
    Antagonized by reality
    Vandalized by insanity

    Desensitized by fraternity
    Sanitized by policy
    Jeopardized by lunacy
    This is hell

    Penalized by apathy
    And living in the world of fantasy
    Dancing on hot coal, waiting for the last call
    It's Adam's ball, Eve's call

    Wake up, shake up
    Check out, work out, speak out
    Reach out, it's time to, time to, time to
    To, to, to, to, to, to, to, to, to, to, to

    This is hell in paradise
    None of us wish to recognize
    But do we want them to materialize
    An endangered species?

    Exorcise institution
    Exercise intuition
    Mobilize transition
    With inspiration for life
