01. I Am The State

Starving out the many while I only feed the few
Maintain the wealth that keeps me in control of you
Clean on the surface so you won't see my deceit
Even though I'm slithering just beneath your feet
Extend my reign into foreign lands
Flexing my muscle anywhere I can
I keep the power and swallow you whole
Cutting off your life support, I follow through

From way up here my vision's distorted
Cannot maintain what I once supported
I keep you safe, secure and protected
Until my self-indulgence has been perfected

I am the state
I decide your fate
Deliver to all
I bring the downfall

Making up your mind is everything I do
Doing the right thing is never up to you
Get you on board only to betray your trust
I will cut you off when I say you've had enough


02. Give Me Liberty... Or Give Me Death

Cut the rotting branches of Government that stop the people from having meaning today
Stay out of my business and keep to yourself
Got to do things my own way
Minimizing freedom with your rules and regulations
A never-ending hunger to control
Choking out the life of your own population
Abusing the power you hold

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Give me Liberty... or Give me Death
Give me Liberty... or Give me Death to our Independence
Death to those who fight
Death to our Constitution and the Bill of Rights
Showing no regard for the way things ought to be
Stripping away rights from you and me
The Founding Fathers would be rollling in their graves
If they could see what you are doing to this place
The next thing to go is our Freedom of Speech
So i'll speak up while i still can and maximize my reach

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Give me Liberty... or Give me Death
Give me Liberty... or Give me Death

I find it hard to believe
Some things are better left unsaid
Is this the land of the free?
Democracy is Dead

Cut the rotting branches of Government that stop the people from having meaning today
Stay out of my business and keep to yourself
Got to do things my own way
Minimizing freedom with your rules and regulations
A never-ending hunger to control
Choking out the life of your own population
Abusing the power you hold

Power
Control
For the Power
Control

Power

For the Power
Control

Give me liberty or Death

"When the people fear the government there is tyranny, when the government fears the people there is liberty"


03. It Is True

Have you ever gotten suspicious
Of the things they try to sell you?
You better wise up
To the bullshit that they tell you
I can't believe we live in a world
Where ignorance is bliss and thoughts are controlled

Have you ever heard of using common sense?
In this crazy world it's our only defense
To stop all the lies
To stop all the hate
To stop, stop, stop theological debate
The world could be a better place in the end
If we all could just admit...

It is true
They lie to you

Do you even posses a single thought of your own?
Or do you believe everything you're told?
How can you sleep with this in your mind?
Your lack of logic ought to be a crime

If I had the chance I'd say it your face
Start thinking for yourself or leave the human race
There is no time for making the mistake
Of letting them get away with preaching and teaching what is fake

How many people need to die
Before you wake up and give your fucking brain a try?

Life is too short to waste time on things
That don't make sense to you or me
It's obvious and you can see, it's right in front of you

It is true
They lie to you
There's no truth
There's no truth
There's no truth


04. Under The Gun

Got your back against the wall
No time left, no time to stall
Life is about to shoot
But you don't know when, you don't know who

Under the gun
Under pressure and anxiety
You gotta find a way
Under the gun
Or there is hell to pay
Under the gun
Eventually...
Gotta do what you gotta do

Doing what does not belong
Doing what you know is wrong
Pressure building up to critical mass
Trying not to break the hourglass

Got no room to make mistakes
Stuck between a rock and a hard place
Life is about to shoot
But you don't know when, you don't know who


05. Waste Of Life

You don't know where it is you're going
But you know you're on your way
Life only gives what you apply
Spend every day just searching
For something to pass the time
So many ways to waste a life

Debasing
Replacing
Embracing
Time wasting
Quit thinking
Mind shrinking

Wasting your life

Wasting away in a pseudo-existence
Let reality pass you by
Apathy and consciousness collide
You can join the real world
Don't let it be denied
Cut the cord: activate your mind

You don't know where it is you're going
But you know you're on your way
Life only gives what you apply
Don't let it be a last-minute decision
To stop throwing away your time
Before you know it, it's over and you die

Stop wasting your life


06. Living Nightmare

Feel the noose tightening around my neck
Cannot breathe, choking on every breath

Distressed
Unrest

No end in sight
Bury me alive
Agonizing thoughts penetrate my mind
Nobody sees, nobody hears, nobody cares, nobody's there
Couldn't be any more aware that I'm living in a nightmare

This is when things go from bad to worse
But it isn't a dream, real life is more perverse

Every sound that I make just echoes back
Am I really awake?


07. Chasing The Edge

Are you searching for the real truth?
Every uncertainty withdrawn
I need to break it to you
The old way of thinking is dead and gone

We're not the center of the universe
Take a look and see
The contradiction pointed in reverse
I will be...

Chasing the edge
Chase the edge

Rethink the possibilities
Turn the whole world upside down
You've lost all credibility
Not a shred of honestly to be found

So, here we are staring into the void
The old way of thinking has been destroyed
You need to just accept the fact
That an open mind has the biggest impact


08. Worse Than War

People die, but never at this rate
Genocide still happens to this day
Every time history repeats itself
The price goes up
Human life put on the shelf

Negated
Decimated
Worse than before
Worse than war

We turn a blind eye
The brutality of reality goes unseen
Dehumanize
Is becoming the routine
Every time history repeats itself
The prices goes up
And we pay too much to tell


09. Children Of The Grave

Revolution in their minds - the children start to march
Against the world in which they have to live
And all the hate that's in their hearts
They're tired of being pushed around
And told just what to do
They'll fight the world until they've won
And love comes flowing through

Children of tomorrow live in the tears that fall today
Will the sun rise up tomorrow bringing peace in any way?
Must the world live in the shadow of atomic fear?
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear?

So you children of the world,
Listen to what I say
If you want a better place to live in
Spread the words today
Show the world that love is still alive
You must be brave
Or you children of today are
Children of the Grave, Yeah!


10. Unnatural Selection

See the gates are closing
Elimination waits
Deeming you unlift for the life just because I decide
To constantly remind you
That there's a reason why
This is where the strongest give and all the weakest die

Separate
Defective and unequal
Clean slate
But it's so unnatural

Showing indifference
Mocking perfection
Struggle for existence
Unnatural selection

Displayed above your head
Feeding you the lie
Putting you to work to profit off of your demise
Systematic servitude
Work will set you free
Arbitrary suffering, infinite misery
