Self-approval never seemed so satisfying
Than in a world, upheld by the lie,
that public outcry,
Was the true measure, of truth's worth:
Virtue in it's true form.
Words of truth, hold no weight
In a society, serving steaming plates
Of corn-pone 'pinions
Born in the ovens of conformity.
Trends to die by a healthy dose,
of independent thinking.
Trends to live by the habits and opinions
of outside influences, gone unquestioned.
But instead, we're hit by the rock of public opinion
And its scarcity of originality, concussing maverick thought.
When finding yourself on the side of the majority,
It's time to reflect, keep your mind whet
Don't be subject, to the groupthink.
Remember the mantra: follow the leader,
To your demise. Open your eyes, and see the truth to life
Associations and sympathies, will get you nowhere.
Formulating opinions and stances,
In the court of public approval.
Unthinking mankind, taking no second glances.
Looking out through wide-eyed glasses:
The curse of tunnel vision.
Self-approval born through the fires of public acceptance
Resulting, in none other than conformity.
For fear, that your bread and butter
Won't get here.
If you're entertaining an opinion that's not corn-pone
Prosperity, requires training with the majority.
Dissent precedes the fall of social standing.
There's a necessity to restricting yourself to corn-pone, 'pinioning.
No first-hand views, if the second-hand shoe fits, wear it.
Public opinion, flows and ebbs
rejecting, reconciling, accepting, indiscriminately.
Unreasoning: the recipe to conformity
Unable to be resisted.
Unyielding desire to passively appeal to authority
Mere conformity, The Unthinking Majority.
Notions, habits, and opinions, born from outside sources
No thinking, or studying, only imitating, without discourse.
Association and sympathy, no reasoning and examination.
There are none but, self-approval, corn-pone opinions
born out of public dominion.
Hardly a man in the world, with opinions not corn-pone
Conformity, freedom's enslaver, growth's enemy
Outside opinions make their false declarations of freedom, independence.
Obeying orders and accepting verdicts:
The unthinking majority.
Born and reared to think the group think
All assuming, we're the most revolutionary, in thought,
But of course not.
Associations and sympathies, no individual reasoning
Lack of conscious thought, hindrance of progression
Quest for conformity, a societal mission.
All must think alike,
or none must think at all
Draw the Jack of Conformity
And watch the King of Enlightenment, Fall.
