1. Multinational Corporations

Multinational corporations
Genocide of the starving nations
Multinational corporations
Genocide of the starving nations
Multinational corporations
Genocide of the starving nations
Multinational corporations
Genocide of the starving nations

2. Instinct Of Survival

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

The multinational corporation
Makes its profit from the starving nations
Another product for you to buy
You’ll keep paying until you die

3. The Kill

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 kill

4. Scum

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 TV
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 left

5. Caught In A Dream

Surrounding spectacle to occupy curiosity
Nullifies the need to face reality

Forms of escapism and entertainment
Occupy and disable thought

6. Polluted Minds

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 mankind

7. Sacrificed

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 die

8. Siege Of Power

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
You’re 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 ruled

9. Control

There is a fascist inside of you
Controlling your life and what you do

Fascist control
Fascist control
Fascist control
Fascist control

There is a fascist inside your head
Controlling your mind until you’re dead

Fascist control
Fascist control
Fascist control
Fascist control

Fascist control
Fascist control
Fascist control
Fascist control

10. Born On Your Knees

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 knees

11. Human Garbage

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 destroyed

12. You Suffer

You suffer, but why?

13. Life?

Brought into this emptiness
Never hope nor 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?

14. Prison Without Walls

Trapped
Inside your head
Insular, living dead

Existing for a purpose you’ll never find
Inducements, distortions contorting your mind

External sources maintain control
Programmed existence, fulfil your role

You’ve got a brain, shake off the reigns
Smash the shackles, break the chains

15. Point Of No Return

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 return

16. Negative Approach

Nothing I can say
That hasn’t already been said
Generic words and thoughts
Similarly expressed

This primitive stance
Feelings of angst
Matters relating to circumstance

Unfounded reactions
Just part of the faction

Conform?
I wouldn’t give you the satisfaction

17. Success?

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’ve shat upon?
Caught in the web you’ll play the game
An artifical life but who’s to blame?

18. Deceiver

Becoming wary of your lies
Your 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 fantasy

19. C.S.

Arrogant
Ignorant
Affluent
Desensitised
Devoid and blind
All compassion nullified
Paragon of virtue
Paragon of shit

20. Parasites

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 plutocracy

21. Pseudo Youth

Same pre-determined pattern, game, rules
Uniformity
Conformity
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 act

22. Divine Death

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 death

C.S.

23. As The Machine Rolls On

Hiding behind symbols
Self-delusion
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 enslaved

24. Common Enemy

Bitching
Back biting
Senseless Infighting

”United we stand
Divided we fall”
The common enemy that overshadows us all

25. Moral Crusade

A superiority complex
Pious, holy to the hilt
Outward displays of cleanliness
Masking their 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 restrictions

26. Stigmatized

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 retarded

27. M.A.D.

Stark, bleak, wasted
Devastated

When?

All life
Totally annihilated

Die!

Does it have to be this way
Is this the price we’re gonna pay?

28. Dragnet

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?
