Thoughts are now confined to a time I hardly remember How could I be so blind? Should shut them out forever These relics now enshrined Behind a promise for good measure Just past the steepest climb lies the deepest divide Divide Minimum token advance slightly better than before Dared to push tried all the doors and never had a chance Despite these tiny victories just never think we've won Think we've won?

Transmitting, have you tuned in for your nightly hacks? Nobody is listening, everybody acts It’s not about what we need, it’s about what we lost or won Puts you and me on shaky ground, reason’s on the run Had enough, shit is going down Shut them off, bury them underground Makes no sense at all, this is the curtain call Turn it on another fight Same old story every night Psychopath in a suit, he’s your talking head That fat fuck doesn’t approve of you and this is what he said Talking points from the top, don’t you dare break Trust everything you hear, the greatest mistake Had enough, shit is going down Shut them off, bury them underground Makes no sense at all, this is the curtain call Turn it on another fight Same old story every night Had enough, shit is going down Shut them off, bury them underground Makes no sense at all, this is the curtain call Turn it on another fight Same old story every night Every nigh ah ha ha height

I read a story that reminded me of you And all the things you said that were not true Oh no! What you put us through Remember when you didn’t shower for weeks? And you slept in the van out in the heat Oh no! Pile the hate right on How about that time you said you had brain cancer, and knew that guy that wasn’t alive? That one wasl alright because we opened for Pennywise BRO HYMN! But really I hope you’re doing fine I hope that you got some help Hope that you’ve hit your stride Hope you got your brain untied Hope that you got some help Committing suicide

Conditioned 04:04
Live in excess on the backs of the halfwits that they lead Take their pick, all access to the variety they need Must’ve happened in a back room, collar keeps it all concealed Until the victims stop living in fear, and then it’s all revealed Hypocrite parade These acts have been allowed, so arrogant right now Can’t wait to watch them fall At the time of this report, backers continue their support Somehow they are still around, covered up and not taken down Full secrecy, no scandal, was a systematic thought But it all came crashing down when the truth was sought Nothing to call it except abuse that started at the top Swept under a rug and got a pass, like a corrupt cop Hypocrite parade These acts have been allowed, so arrogant right now Can’t wait to watch them fall Always ask what’s the use, now made worse by abuse Thought we’d seen enough, intensified by the cover up Once upon a time, categorized as fine Don’t you love it when they ask: “Dear Father, for I have sinned. If I fellate, would you put the good word in?” Just you wait and see, more will surface it’s a guarantee Wait for the cover ups At the time of this report, backers continue their support One note shred!!! Hypocrite parade These acts have been allowed, so arrogant right now Can’t wait to watch them fall

In Pieces 02:24
You said you’ve heard enough The time you spent’s been a mistake But I can think of a thousand reasons to participate Movements might squander some efforts And sure I can relate But the rational carry the burden So I must accelerate Could be a catalyst, part of the solution Or stand by motionless Accept the institution Broken It’s what we said it is Broken It can’t be fixed Broken is what we are Everytime I think there’s motion Instead we ruminate Argument, pause, delay Continues to deflate Deflate Puppets in this sick fucking show Orchestrated by those rich old white men They’ve got the power and they know Been left unchecked yet again They’re trash, they’re fucking worthless Backed up against the wall If we don’t rise up they’ll never fall

This world was not designed Fact and fiction not aligned Where did you come from and when can you leave? You fly your rebel flag You should be bound and gagged Where did you come from and when can you leave? When can you leave? Where did you come from? How did you get so far behind? Is your mind that dull? How have you survived?

Four Hour 02:35
Misleading while they’re out there with no home Playing games with their remains Look at how much you have blown Receding, fall down from your throne The hopes and dreams of who you left behind Come picking at your bones It has been this way forever We know who pulls all the levers It has been this way forever This song won’t make a difference Begging got your hand out wanting more Every day you wear away Scrape more from the floor Will you ever stop feeding more to the top You ignore, we deplore Seen this all before Character lost and found from the grips of the unknown Use the small minded as stepping stones Seen this all before, seeming to ignore The needs of all who you speak for Who do you speak for? Constant state of war Who do you speak for? Not me

First Day 02:08
First day never done this one So I think that I’ll give it a try Easier said than done and I’m not one To just go along for the ride Guess that I have to stay here I don’t think I’m better off this way Started out already headed south Not going according to plan Looked up to the sun, said I got this one Still haven’t seen that one land Think it’s one of those things That I know I can’t do Supposed to learn to fly but I’m not that guy Sure not cut out for this

Caged 03:02
Don’t get pissed just because you’re ignorant You shut down, but you’ll never understand Irrational, everything I hear from you Listen once, know it’s hard for you to do Blame it on traditions or society No matter where it started, now it has no strength Think you’re running the whole show Should be caged up all alone So this doesn’t carry on This is a call, you can still turn it around Think about, from someone else’s point of view If you insist, kicked, screamed, and dragged along Years from now, when the dark ages are gone Blame it on traditions or society No matter where it started, now it has no strength Think you’re running the whole show Should be caged up all alone So this doesn’t carry on Can’t drag us down, we’ll make it through We will progress, with or without you It’s a give and take, been taking for far too long You’ve got it wrong Blame it on traditions or society No matter where it started, now it has no strength Think you’re running the whole show Should be caged up all alone So this doesn’t carry on

Read this message below Think it would be best for the CEO If you could turn in your things And quietly pack up your shit and go He needs a new vacation home And a couple of boats for show It would look nice on the bottom line Without you and your friends in tow Don’t understand why you call it greed When my friends and I take much more than we need Corporate powers left unchecked Until there are no workers left Hang you out to dry and then wonder why You think our values are a mess This might come as a surprise Been planning your demise Push you around, kick when you’re down And gouge out your eyes Don’t understand why you call it greed When my friends and I take much more than we need Saving from collapse By breaking all your backs Almighty profit we do believe Take what we want fuck your needs
