Hiding Behind

This song is by Napalm Death and appears on the album Harmony Corruption (1990).

Search for purity
Leads to insecurity
An incapability

Trapped within outside theories

Ideals adopted,
Agreeable on basis
Yet to question
Aspects a cardinal sin

Should self expression
Mean social loss of face
Labelled unaware
Because you beg to differ

Hiding behind
A shroud of belief
Staunchly involved,
Highly confused

Confidence in your firmly
Lodged thoughts
Yet take a back seat
While others speak for you

Should every single
Thinking moment
Be saturated
With political stance

Striving for perfection
Fear of group rejection

Better to be at mental ease
Than harbouring
Thoughts not mutually agreed

The spoken mind
And reasons why
Dictation by others
Be denied without fail
