Engage The Fear Machine

Album: VII: Sturm und Drang (2015)
  • Here we go again, the world is coming to an end
    Engage the fear machine and collect the dividends
    That's it, you filthy monkeys
    Keep your eyes on the bright and shiny
    Just for you, a brand new-and-improved catastrophe
    Pure-bred Pavlov, prime time apocalypse
    Hit the panic button and reap the bloody benefits
    Paranoia writes the checks
    Strung out like a marionette
    A hole in the sky, a hole in your head
    It's business as usual
    We're bringing you disaster in high-def
    Once again, my friends the world is coming to an end
    No empty threat this time, so let the witch hunts begin
    The sky is falling, seal the boarders, heighten the anxiety
    A steady diet of hysteria shapes history
    Pure-bred Pavlov, prime time apocalypse
    Hit the panic button and reap the bloody benefits
    Paranoia writes the checks
    Strung out like a marionette
    A hole in the sky, a hole in your head
    It's business as usual
    We're bringing you disaster in high-def
    Stream the latest threat from the limelight economists
    Fabricated peril from contagion to communists
    Fear delivered to your door by racketeers and strategists
    Another advertisement war sold by the media terrorists
    Paranoia writes the checks
    Strung out like a marionette
    A hole in the sky, a hole in your head
    It's business as usual
    We're bringing you disaster in high-def Writer/s: CHRIS ADLER, DAVID RANDALL BLYTHE, JOHN CAMPBELL, MARK MORTON, WILL ADLER
