Delusion Pandemic

Album: VII: Sturm und Drang (2015)
  • Allocate your future to the delegates
    Relegate your muses to the surrogates
    Long green apron stings that end in hooks
    Sunk deep, written off, and on the books
    Ripped off, a weak derivative culture
    Disposable, nothing's built to last
    Whipped dogs, a bleak cognitive future
    Ineptitude is reaching critical mass
    A generation of mockingbirds
    You are being herded by the wolves
    A generation of mockingbirds
    Feeding yourself to the wolves
    This is the rise of our demise
    Fucked up and uncivilized
    This is the rise of our demise
    You paint a target right between your eyes
    Collateral damage in the aggregates
    Structural analysis of duplicates
    Errors of illusion, clouded perspectives
    Terrorized delusions and end game objectives
    Locked out, a stiff tactical suture
    A victim complex now reality
    Blocked ground, a swift statistical maneuver
    Persecution of the self-made weak
    A generation of mockingbirds
    You are being herded by the wolves
    A generation of mockingbirds
    Feeding yourself to the wolves
    This is the rise of our demise
    Fucked up and uncivilized
    This is the rise of our demise
    You paint a target right between your eyes
    Now it's the moment that everything can change
    You are completely responsible for your own life
    And no one it's coming to save you from yourself
    So stop blaming your problems or any or everything else
    It does not matter one tiny fucking bit
    How unfair you think the world is, it's only what you do
    Right here, right now
    Right this fucking instant that matters
    It's your choice to
    Sink or swim
    Sink or swim
    Sink or swim
    Sink or swim

    It's imminent, the rise of your demise
    Sink or swim
    It's all around, the rise of your demise
    Sink or swim Writer/s: CHRIS ADLER, DAVID RANDALL BLYTHE, JOHN CAMPBELL, MARK MORTON, WILL ADLER
