Multinational Corporations1:06
Multinational corporations
Genocide of the starving nationsback to top
Instinct Of Survival2:27
Advertise the product you make
Never give but always take
Kill and lie for security
Your shit on supermarket shelves to see

Instinct of survival

The multinational corporations
Makes its profit from the starving nations
Indigenous peoples become their slaves
From their births into their graves

The multinational corporations
Makes its profit from the starving nations
Another product for you to buy
You'll keep paying until you dieback to top
The Kill0:23
There's nothing to gain
You have just been led

The kill, after death, the kill

The shit you were promised
Means nothing now you're dead

The kill, after death, the killback to top
In your mind
Nothing but fear
You can't face life
Or believe death's near

A vision of life
On television screens
An existence created
From empty dreams

Hide behind T.V.
Hide behind life
You should be living
But you only survive

Life holds nothing
But pain and death
Don't look for love
There is none leftback to top
Caught... In A Dream1:47
Surrounding spectacle
To occupy curiosity
Nullifies the need
To face reality

Forms of escapism
And entertainment
Occupy & disable thoughtback to top
Polluted Minds0:59
They not only pollute the air
They pollute our minds
They're destroying the earth
And destroying mankind

Polluted minds
Kill mankind

They don't give a shit
Long as profits are high
They don't give a shit
If people die

Polluted minds
Kill mankindback to top
I've been deceived
By my friends
And this is where
Our "friendship" ends

Sacrificed, sacrificed
Sacrificed, your soul sacrificed

The thoughts I had
Are now denied
And one day soon
I hope you DIEback to top
Siege Of Power4:00
Siege of power
In your land
Too many problems
For you to understand
Siege of power
Inside your mind
Outward restrictions
To keep you in line

Siege of power - in your land
Too many problems - for you to understand
A slave of their power - you never question why
Your going to suffer - you're going to die

Siege of power - inside your mind
Outward restrictions - to keep you in line
You're a slave of their power - you never questioned why
You were made to suffer - you were born to die

Siege of power
They made you a tool
While others were ruling
You were being ruledback to top
There is a fascist
Inside of you
Controlling your life
And what you do

Fascist control

There is a fascist
Inside your head
Controlling your thoughts
Until your death

Fascist controlback to top
Born On Your Knees1:49
Born on your knees
Life in chains
A slow death
Into your graves

Born on your knees

Born on your knees
Life of pain
Existence restricted
By material gains

Born on your knees
You fucking asshole

Born on your knees
Conditioned blind
Crawling to death
Revenge for your crime

Born on your knees

Born on your knees
From the womb torn
Live in chains
And die as you were born

Born on your kneesback to top
Human Garbage1:33
Paid to obey
Forced to be silent

Human garbage
To be destroyed

Submit to darkness
Forced to conform

Human garbage
To be destroyed

Your mind is dead
Your thoughts are void

Human garbage
To be destroyedback to top
You Suffer0:01
You suffer...
But why?back to top
Brought into this emptiness
Never hope or choice
Emotionless and cold
This is life?

Illusions shattered
An existence of lies
A constant struggle
Freedom denied

At their feet - submission
No sanctuary in death
Drugged up, fucked up
Is that all you're worth?back to top
Prison Without Walls0:38
Trapped - inside your head
Insular, living dead

Existing for a purpose you'll never find
Inducements, distortions command your mind

External sources maintain control
Programmed existence, fulfill your role

You've got a brain, shake off the reins
Smash the shackles, break the chainsback to top
Point Of No Return0:35
Systematic rape of nature
Profit precedes need
Maintaining economic stature
Steal the fruit yet leave no seed

And of future generations?
What of their inheritance
A world of contamination
Poisoned by our ignorance

Oblivious to reality
Conscience spurned
Beyond the point of no returnback to top
Negative Approach0:33
Nothing I can say
That hasn't already been said
Generic words & thoughts
Similarly expressed

This primitive stance
Feelings of angst
Matters relating
To circumstance

"Unfounded action -
just part of the faction"
Conform? I wouldn't give you
The satisfactionback to top
Climb the ladder, your security
Upward social mobility

Consume the lies "It's what you need"
Vicious circle of mindless greed

Where is your success gained from?
What of the lives you're shat upon?
Caught in the web you'll play the game
An artifical life but who's to blame?back to top
Becoming weary of your lies
You disguise the truth belies

Only fooling yourself

Pretend to bite the hand that feeds
But you won't discard your security

The transparency of your fantasyback to top
C.S. (Conservative Shithead)1:14
Devoid and blind
All compassion nullified

Paragon of virtue
(Paragon of shit)back to top
Permissive slaves
To their methods of greed
From our needs
The leeches feed

When will you see?
We'll never be free
While we sanction
This plutocracyback to top
Pseudo Youth0:42
Same pre-determinated
Pattern, game, rules

How long can you hide the truth

Now you've settled down
Reflected on your past
The pose, the look, the stance
All part of the actback to top
Divine Death1:21
Cleansing impurity
Seizure of insecurity

Divine death

Individuality disabled
Blinded by fables

Divine death

Easy prey
You will pay
Mourn life's loss
Rotting on that cross

Divine deathback to top
As The Machine Rolls On...0:43
Hiding behind symbols
Plenty of questions
(And no solutions)

Visions of change
A mere illusion
Futile dreams
Of revolution

Flows of rhetoric
Won't influence change
Their will is subdued
Their minds enslavedback to top
Common Enemy0:16
Senseless in-fighting

"United we stand
Divided we fall"
The common enemy that overshadows us allback to top
Moral Crusade1:33
A superiority complex
Pious, holy to the hilt
Outwards displays of cleanliness
Masking inner feelings of hate and guilt

Your morality is hypocrisy
Obsessive self-esteem
Enforcing your ideals
Your puritanical dream

Gather your flock
Gullible fools
Dictate restrictionsback to top
Blissfully ignorant
Content and unaware
Not your problem
Why should you care?

Not normal
An easy target for release
Infected from birth
This sickening disease

You sanctimonious slime
Understanding discarded
The truth is clear
It's you that's retardedback to top
Stark, bleak, wasted


All life
Totally annihilated


Does it have to be this way
Is this the price we're gonna pay?back to top
The ascension of human intelligence
To atomic genocide

Homo Sapiens = the disease the cause the pollution
Erase the aeons of evolutions

Pushed too far, just a matter of time
Seemingly nothing to halt the tide...

...Except the end - accept the end?back to top
