The Revolution will not be medicated

The Revolution will not be medicated 
No forced stillness and wiped dreams 
No being held down
For being different

No sedation for the screams
We are screaming for a reason
Our hurt will change the world
Because the world won't change our hurt

The side effect of  life
Is the need for it to be ours
The revolution will not be medicated
You cannot anesthetise hell
You cannot desensitise the broken heart

Madness is seen as revolting

Thank fuck
