  • Lifecycles and planned obsolescence
    A perfect trap disguised as assistance
    It takes the pain away
    It takes the pain away
    Control the sentience of the masses
    Relief replaced with silent disaster
    But I won't fade away
    No, I won't fade away

    I defy, this hopelessness
    I defy, your callousness
    I defy, irreverent, I will rise I see through your disguise, and all your lies
    I defy (defy, I defy)

    A numbing cure for the common existence
    Replace security for subsistence
    It takes the pain away
    It takes the pain away

    Victimize, enable, beguile
    A body count without a reprisal
    But I won't fade away
    No, I won't fade away

    I defy, this hopelessness
    I defy, your callousness
    I defy, irreverent, I will rise I see through your disguise, and all your lies
    I defy

    Sometimes the pain of life's too much to mitigate
    But I refuse to march into an early grave

    I refuse to march into an early grave

    I defy, this hopelessness
    I defy, your callousness
    I defy, irreverent, I will rise I see through your disguise, and all your lies
    I defy (defy, I defy)

    Defy, defy, defy, I defy Writer/s: AARON PAULEY, ALAN ASHBY, PHIL MANANSALA, VALENTINO ARTEAGA
