Opiate for the Masses

Opiate for the Masses was a post-hardcore band from Arizona. They formed in Phoenix in 1999 by Ron Underwood, Elias Mallin, Dustin Lyon and Jim Kaufman. The meaning of their name comes from the Karl Marx quote that says the organized religion is an opiate for oppressed countries and cultures. In June 2009, they posted on their MySpace page that they had broken up and gone their separate ways. Ron is currently singing for 9 Electric. more »

You got a problem with my cookie cutter life?
I'll put you back in your place
And if you're looking at my cookie cutter wife
I'll kick the smile off your face

My only daughter is an honor role student
And a goalie on the soccer ball team
I know it sounds a little boring at the moment
But we ain't exactly what we seem

I got a woman with thirty-two teeth
And a daughter at a picket fence
And in the garage sits a little sedan
And a minivan with just a couple of dents

All for a limited time
It isn't dandy and fine because of my ignorance
Oh, right now it seems to me
My greatest enemy is common sense

Left, right, left, right
Left, right, left, right

Step up, you think you can handle it
Back off, don't make no demands to me
Right now, I'm sick of it all
And I think I might snap with my back to the wall
So c'mon

The only problem with my cookie cutter life
It's on me that everyone depends
I always gotta take my cookie cutter knife
And cut myself apart to meet those ends

And every time I try to sit my family down
Just to talk to me, they never do
I heard it's the only way to really get to know them
Now I know it's true

I finally got a realization of where all my money goes
To my cars, my house and two bars
My wife's ass and up my daughter's nose

Told my shrink what I think about it all
And he said that that's the way that it goes
Oh, right now, it doesn't comfort me
To hear this is the life I chose

Left, right, left, right
Left, right, left, right

Step up, you think you can handle it
Back off, don't make no demands to me
Right now, I'm sick of it all
And I think I might snap with my back to the wall
So c'mon

Step up, you think you can handle it
Back off, don't make no demands to me
Right now, I'm sick of it all
And I think I might snap with my back to the wall
So f*ck off

Left, right, left, right
Left, right, left, right

Step up, you think you can handle it
Back off, don't make no demands to me
Right now, I'm sick of it all
And I think I might snap with my back to the wall
So c'mon

Step up, you think you can handle it
Back off, don't make no demands to me
Right now, I'm sick of it all
And I think I might snap with my back to the wall
So f*ck off
