The Human species
Always in conflict with itself and nature
No approval for environment
Modified and regulated
Ideologies passing
Systems come and go

Forcing people under different sovereignty
Paradigms are changing

The human species
Never learning from its history
Can't we arrange an economy
Able to feed every hungry child?
Peace and justice for everyone
Isn't possible in this system

Capitalism has failed
This is danistacracy

And the maggots, in their own filth
They watch it, tiny brains switched off
Kept calm with their porn, their food
Distraction and consumption
Mental enfeeblement through television
All needs are fulfilled
But are they happy?

Can you even remember what it was like to take responsibility?

There is no insight
Moral undefined
Human mind is closed
Forgot what it may change

Left, right, left, right... or it's mainstream
Either way, you get categorised

Nothing's done to prevent that shit
To use it as a weapon
Indoctrination turns one group on another
Pits them against each other
