  • Now, I don't know about you, but I don't think the primary purpose of your life, of my life and the entirety of the human race's is just to blindingly consume to support a failing economy and a faulty system. forever and ever until we run out of every resource and have to resort to blowing each other up to ensure our own survival. I don't think we're supposed to sit by idle while we continue to use a long outdated system that produces war, poverty, collusion, corruption, ruins our environment and threatens every aspect of our health and does nothing but divide and segregate us. I don't think how much military equipment we are selling to other countries, how many hydrocarbons we're burning, how much money is being printed and exchanged, is a good measure of how healthy our society is but I do think I can speak for everyone when I say, we're sick of this shit.

    Time to mobilize
    Time to open eyes
    We are not a quiet pocket of resistance
    This is real, but we cannot afford to fail
    Act with, act with persistence
    This is real, but we cannot afford to fail
    Army, establish order
    Respect me and fear me
    Fuck you
    We have no respect
    And when tomorrow comes
    We're gonna stamp on your head (pig)

    Whoa, woah
    Calm down, (calm down mate), calm the fuck down
    Gandhi mate, remember gandhi (jesus, just remember)
    Alright, alright I'm fine

    See if we keep them silent then,
    They'll resort to violence and that's how we criminalize change

    Awhhhh,
    Yabba dabba do one son, we don't want you rules
    Who you fooling son, we've got all the tools
    We need to build a whole new system
    To correct these flaws
    (you know what), I've already listed them

    You're a communist
    You're a fucking utopianist
    Ah here they come, the immersive labels
    But they're attempted fails

    Cos man, we so far out your comfort zone

    We stop, think, begin to revive
    We stop, think, begin to revive
    We stop, we think, we begin to revive
    We begin to revive

    Put a call out to the frontline
    Get the message out to the the contact squad
    Transmit emergency frequencies
    Put a call out to the frontline
    Get the message out to the the contact squad
    Put a call out, put a call out, put a call ouuuuut

    Oh and the jigsaw starts to build
    Oh and the jigsaw starts to build

    Piece
    By
    Piece

    Open their minds

    Transmit emergency frequencies

    Open their minds

    Transmit emergency frequencies

    Emergency frequencies

    Emergency frequencies

    Emergency frequencies
