The "De-vice" single from "Face in the Crowd", the second full length album from Conversion Delay.


when everything seems oh so dramatic from afar
a spectrum of widening extremes
if it's your will and not the pills you take
that keep you bound and stretching at the seams

they've got a fix for that
a way to even out those feelings
don't mind the side effects
it's what makes it so appealing

precisely systematic, targeted demographics
it's not about what's right but what's easy to sell
this corporate mechanism bred from consumerism
if you want out of the device then just de-vice yourself

are you that certain that you're still up flying high
or spiraling into the ground?
imbibe to find your wings and you'll be fine i'm sure
until you need to be unwound

they've got a drug for that
they've made a miracle concoction
don't mind the side effects
you can take care of those with another one
