Writing album, need critiques please!

I'm writing an album with some lyrics I've been putting together for a few months now. I feel like they are missing something but can't figure it out. Please be honest, I would like honest opinions to try and really push me to do they best I can. Thank you!

Numb has become our reality
Blissfully distracted by our own lies
Suffering has become our routine
Content with the disarray
Blinded by their lies
While death and war remain the norm our futures being programmed
All according to their plan
To our graves we float along
Obliviously hoping, why can't we open our eyes?
Fear is controlling the masses
Telling us what and how to think
Creating our hate and fear
Consuming us one by one
Destroying what made us human
Starting with your mind we've lost control



White noise puts me at ease
The flashes relax my body
Chaotic and dissonant has become tranquil and aesthetic
Numb has become my reality
Poison that silences my mind
Poison that slows my heart
More, the desire for more
Craving conflict over peace
More of the suffering that fuels this fire
More of the pain that drives this machine
Ignorance keeps me safe
Keeping the truth buried in me
Dictating how I live
What I think
It's for my own good
I can't be left to my own devices



A foreigner among friends
Empty laughs
A stranger amongst family
Faking smiles
I don't belong here
Did I ever really belong?
Taking a path less traveled
With No footsteps to follow
Not knowing the end
How Many have tried before
To break free from this hell
This corrupted land has led me to believe
This is all there is, all that ever was
Are we all damned?
Unforgiving and unwavering
This isn't for me
This can't be all there is
I will find my way


Open your eyes!
You have to adjust to the light eventually
Or do you prefer to keep them closed?
Keep building my tower of cards
Higher and higher, more, more!
Don't stop assembling my manufactured life
You'll get there eventually kid, just keep at it
This ship is unfucking sinkable!
Picture perfect
Once the dust has finally settled that is
Live free or die for the American way
No fucking questions!
Send the boys to meaningless throes
Blank stares and empty shells
Paralyzed from the shit force fed to me
Keep it down and smile
Vacant faces paired with barren hearts
Wipe those tears from my eyes
Desensitized or anesthetized? Take your pick



Leaving home, I'm chasing fleeting stars
Coming home, I'm racing the sunlight
Promised young
It's the way that it's gotta be, son
Just 30 more years and you'll be set without a single fear
Start digging another hole and fill up that other one
Cause we all know idle hands are the devils playthings
Round and round he goes never gaining any ground
Cheering him on, having our laughs
Why does the dog chase his tail?
I bet he thinks today is the day he finally wins
Nothing to show for except this broken back and these calloused hands
Scraping by while the vultures circle overhead
Wolves in sheeps clothes, devouring sound intentions
They killed the shepherd and we're on our own
Just dig another hole and fill up that other one
Cause we all know idle hands are the devils plaything
Round and round he goes never gaining any ground
Cheering him on, having our laughs
Why does the dog chase his tail?
I bet he thinks today is the day he finally wins
Tired of the seemingly endless monotony
I decided to let these hands sit idle but the devil never showed
With idle hands comes an undistracted mind and a little bit of truth
And with an open mind, you can finally see what's been in front of us the whole time
Not all prisons surround you with bars



I've opted out of signing on the dotted line
I've finally come to my crossroads
This time we aren't selling our souls for rock and roll
Gambling our lives for our god given rights
My dice are loaded but so are their guns
Taking what's mine for their fucking crimes
Formalities are a fallacy in this day and age
When it comes to what's mine I'll take the low road every time




Everyone says that they want change
When the opportunity comes, will you?
It all starts with you
Will you have the courage to stand alone?
