Is there a plan or is it stupid
Cause it all just hurts my brain
It isn't random when I'm lucid
But it still just smarts the same

If I could blame it on the fools
Who broke the chalice with their feet
I'd still get raked over the coals
Like a rotten piece of meat

Still trying to hold my head
In this cognitive dissonance

Is there a plot because I lost it
Don't have the logic to explain
And all the dialogue is caustic
But it still can't wash the stain

And if the apple tree is rotten
Well damn it so is all the fruit
We need that old Small Axe to chop it
And cut it down right from the root

Still trying to hold my head
In this cognitive dissonance

They say appearance is deceiving
So you better stop the show
Cause there's things that you believe in
And there's things that you just know

They built the dam right at the headwaters
Without a thought for those below
Someday the whole damn thing'll shatter
And let that muddy river flow

But I'm here,
Still trying to hold my head
In this cognitive dissonance
If what I'm told is correct
This world will soon be wrecked
