lyrics

Overdue revolution
Recurring resignation
The downsides of this system appear
Nature craves time out
Cries for help they get loud
Society's on its tipping point

A language no one's able to understand
The suggestive ideas lost their appeal
Myopic desire for authority came to stay
So ask yourself for which machinery we have to pay?

Reckless exploitation
Inconsiderate dissipation
Human arrogance leads to eclectic conflict
Disposable society
Overwrought consumption
People's ignorance forces problems to grow

If there were bigger problems
Would we need better weapons?
The entrenched right seems to be everywhere
But the hand to hold on to isn't there
The appearance that truth is lies
Can't we finally use at least part of our mind?

Inevitable, brutal riots will force this system to take its leave
The beginning of this conflagration will put an end to this deceit

We are controlled with true lies
We are rushed with our own knives

We are bars of our mental cage
We are rodents on a stage
Though we're creators we're also products, the system needs us

Disposable society
Overwrought consumption
People's ignorance forces problems to grow

We are not the ones, keeping you quiet
We are not the ones, keeping them safe
We are not the ones, keeping you quiet
We are not the ones, keeping them safe
