Counteract

Album: Violence & Destruction (2014)
  • Confuse the path of distractions and send them on their way.
    Maintain stability, and gravitate towards purity, and always seize the day.

    You know it's ours for the taking. (It belongs to us)
    You know it's ours for the taking. (It belongs to us)
    So reach out your hand and grab it.
    And hold on to it.
    And never let it go.

    Now counteract this world.
    Devastate the masses.
    Counteract.
    Counteract this world.
    Devastate the masses.
    Demonstrate the truth.

    Eliminate the friction between innocence and strife.
    Let the old men speak of their dreams, and let the young men
    tell you what they've seen.

    You know it's ours for the taking. (It belongs to us)
    You know it's ours for the taking. (It belongs to us)
    So reach out your hand and grab it.
    And hold on to it.
    And never let it go.

    Now counteract this world.
    Devastate the masses.
    Counteract.
    Counteract this world.
    Devastate the masses.
    Demonstrate the truth.

    This is not a dream.
    (Wake up)

    Now tell them something they don't want to hear.

    Counteract this world. Writer/s: Andrew Murphy, Christopher Doot, Eric Frazier, Michael Carvajal
