Written By Wolves - Apathy (Is A Hell Of A Drug) Lyrics

Let me get this started
Let me get this straight
You're telling me I should give into fate
And just accept the fact
My future's laid out by church and state

But it's justified
I should give in to all of your lies
What the hell what do I care
Let's all sit back now and enjoy the ride

'Cause you know that if we had the right to choose
To give a shit would not be on our list of things to do
Don't like you or agree with anything that you say
But to take you down can wait another day

The revolution is over
We've all gone home
We'll reimburse you for stones
That have yet to be thrown

The revolution is over
We all got bored
We'd like to thank you for being
A part of our cause


So now you made the big time
And your name's in lights
And you just sold the movie rights
To your life and your struggle
Like the boy in the bubble
Oh my God
Well I think I might die
'Cause you're just so fake
Think I've had about all I can take
What's that you say I've got you all wrong
Oh sorry must be my mistake

So now you tell me what you think I wanna hear
Control the narrative and watch your problems disappear
You see I disagree but what's a boy to do
Why can't we have our cake and eat it too

The revolution is over
We've all gone home
We'll reimburse you for stones
That have yet to be thrown

The revolution is over
We all got bored
We'd like to thank you for being
A part of our cause


You won't fool me once
Won't fool me twice
Won't fool me three times
You're as cold as ice

But it's wearing thin
Where it cracks is where we'll begin
To start to see your empire falling
What's that I hear karma calling
So hold all bets
It's time to pay off your debts
See apathy's a hell of a drug
But this is as real as it gets

Yeah we quit the habit
Now we're standing here
The disenchanted youth
Have decided that they care
You woke a sleeping giant
What a stupid thing to do
Time is up, the game is over
Now you lose

The revolution is over
We've all gone home
We'll reimburse you for stones
That have yet to be thrown

The revolution is over
We all got bored
We'd like to thank you for being
A part of our cause

The revolution is over
We've all gone home
We'll reimburse you for stones
That have yet to be thrown

The revolution is over
We all got bored
We'd like to thank you for being
A part of our cause

  43. Razzy 18126

    God bless ya guys for making this. Saying what needs to be said. Incredibly brave of you to make this song when people like *cough* 30STM are making money on the social strife of today by fanning the flames, you make a song like this. Here's to hoping the message is heard! *raises glass*

    there are no words to describe how dissapointed I am right now...

  46. Drachona The Wolf

    I want to believe that this is supposed to apply to the young inactive activists of today; the perpetually insulted Twitter users and hypocritical protestors. "You know...morons."

    Razzy 18126

    That's how I saw it too, so it's definitely not just you!

  56. Sakurairo Fuyu

    Shizuo's Stalker Icy what you did there

  57. TonyBarnes

    Amazing, as always. You guys are un-fucking-beliveably talented. This is SO good and SO.... fitting? Like, it's perfect. I love it. Keep up the good work, I hope you get all the love and attention you deserve.


    its good because its both accurate, and still ends with a hopeful note. also, with the net neutrality shit happening right now, that might ACTUALLY get people motivated again. after all, the internet is part of whats currently maintaining the culture of apathy. by making people pay more than they can really afford for it, and sacrificing everyone's privacy at the same time, the establishment is pissing people off on principle, taking away a good chunk of their escapism, and pitting the internet addiction they themselves cultivated against the capitalist culture they also worked so very hard to build. if net neutrality gets wiped out, that's one thing that EVERYONE in the 99% (or at the VERY least the 90%) can agree on wholeheartedly. They got the world addicted to a very powerful, and dangerous drug, and now they threaten to pull the plug on it, and lace it with poisons, even if you pay extra. things got pretty damn close to disorganized revolution when 1/2 the country got pissed off at the presidential campaign results. but now? this isn't just 1/2 the country, hell its not even just 90% of the country. its 90% OF THE WORLD. there aren't enough tanks, choppers, and battleships on the planet to pacify with that, and nuking us means they lose their precious workforce, and market. They would starve. They only win by keeping the 90% happy, and they are... NOT doing that very well right now. as if that wasnt bad enough, this is a global issue, whether people realize this yet or not, meaning that there wont be neighboring governments to lean on. world war 3 looks to be a global revolution, rather than a war of nations.

  58. Nick Patouxeas

    rock version?

  59. Gray Ayakashi

    I love how they put a meme in the song. This song is a hell of a drug.
