  • Break down the wall again

    You made a deal with the devil in a bloodbath
    Now there's a price on your head, seal the contract
    Automatic, systematic
    We want our pound of flesh and we slice thick

    Kill 'em all kill 'em, all no successors
    Flip the script and oppress the oppressors
    Finding strength as we sift through the carnage
    We want our pound of flesh and we'll take it

    You fucking fascist
    You fucking pig

    You sit back as we collapse, packaged up and sold for scraps
    Evade the butcher's tax, then write us off
    And it's hard to stop the bleeding hung from hooks and barely breathing
    But we'll break break break down the wall again

    You tell your stories of the things that you've been through
    But they're as false as the teeth that you lie through
    Nobodies buying but you sell, sell, sell
    In the land of the free you're a slave to your wealth

    You fucking fascist
    Die you fucking pig
    This is the consequence of opulence

    You sit back as we collapse, left to fight over scraps
    While you auction off our backs to buy your crown
    (Force fed the lies)
    And it's hard to stop the bleeding hung from hooks and barely breathing
    But we'll break, break, break down the wall again
    Break, break, break down the wall

    One mutilation under God
    God in the cross, devil in the nails
    Whatcha gonna buy with all your money in hell?
    God in the cross, devil in the nails
    Whatcha gonna buy with all your money in hell?

    You sit back as we collapse, packaged up and sold for scraps
    While you auction off our backs to pay the tax
    (Eye for an eye)
    Victims of your invention, all we've got are cruel intentions
    But we'll break, break, break down the wall
    Break, break, break down the wall again

    Cut you up, cut you up, cut you down at your knees
    Watch you beg like a rat for your luxuries
    Cut you up, cut you up, rip the teeth from your mouth
    You won't survive in your slaughterhouse
    Die

    Cut you up, cut you up, cut you down at your knees
    Watch you beg like a rat for your luxuries
    Cut you up, cut you up, rip the teeth from your mouth
    You won't survive in your slaughterhouse
