Name of Song: That Hidden Influence

This world revolves on pictures,
Mental ones at that,
Memories showing all this life,
But some do stealth like cats.

Hidden because you forgot them,
They mold the way you see,
Habitual sunken urges to,
Make it hard to be.

Chorus
Memories were implanted,
Before our thoughts of time,
Designed to mold the way you were,
Now life a constant climb.
I know these hidden influences,
They claw and gnaw at you,
The greatest scam the world has seen,
To keep you in the glue.
______

Sophisticated intentions,
Too evil to resolve,
Understanding what they are
So hard to just absolve.

Easy to become them,
Harder to just say,
That using them feels better than
The me I am today.

Chorus

Designed to mold the way you were,
Now life a constant climb.
I know these hidden influences,
They claw and gnaw at you,
The greatest scam the world has seen,
