lyrics

There’s religion versus science, creationism, atheism
Say it’s black and white, who is right? My ism not your ism
We are prisoners of each extreme
Each one believing that they are supreme
Working class against the wealthy, capitalism, communism
Left against the right, all the shades divided by the prism
We are prisoners of each extreme
Each one indoctrinating their own scheme

Chorus:
Don’t wanna swing the pendulum
Why can’t we find moderation, that is moderation?
Don’t wanna swing the pendulum
Why can’t we find moderation, that is moderation?

The oppression of the masses, unbridled liberty
You see, it’s all disunity, polar ends of equity and justice
We are prisoners of each extreme
Can we escape from each excessive scheme?

[Chorus]

Quench this cacophony
We just need some harmony
Don’t want uniformity
We just need some balance

[Chorus x2]
