Adaptation Is Surrender

Thanks once again to unreal_dm.

I’ve uploaded the vocals separately.

The words:

I don’t want to adapt
I don’t agree with your facts
Your respect for the truth
is too conveniently lax

I don’t want it to be so
that everything we see
has at least two truths
one for you and one for me

I won’t be a subscriber
to things as they are
I don’t want a camera in my house
and I can drive my own damn car

I don’t like the new morality
where lies are the norm
Not every new snowfall
constitutes a storm

Which I guess makes me a weirdo
or maybe I’m just old
or maybe just someone
with some standards to uphold

And things get weirder every day
We’re asked to buy what once was strange
Believe no matter what they say
Accept the things you cannot change

Adaptation is surrender now
more than compromise
ever since the idiocracy
has been legitimized

Editorial pick

Folk rock ballad with genuine lyrics, impassioned vocal delivery, and a tasty, mellow backing track. Speck’s vocal additions to Unreal_DM’s instrumental are just what so many of us need… the validation that we’re not alone. Even if we are weirdos.
