The Lie

  • The human race, what did we create?
    We left our mark here, repercussions of choices made
    This is the end, multiply and spread
    What did you expect when you reap our way and dig our graves
    Force feeding chemicals into the mouths of all our youth
    You might despise all of our lies, you're terrified of truth
    We see you pulling strings of puppets as we speak
    You're burying and you're killing of anything that you see fit

    How could you do this to the ones that you're above?
    How could you do this to the ones that you're above?
    I've had enough

    You're desolate, and no one cares
    As we march ahead towards the end
    And over the edge

    The callous souls that you were once responsible to feed
    Their hunger now burns inside of all they
    So throw em high and maybe you'll find and maybe you'll find
    So throw em high and maybe you'll find, you're not above me

    I've had enough

    You're desolate, and no one cares
    As we march ahead towards the end
    You're desolate, and no one cares
    As we march ahead towards the end
    And over the edge

    Listen
    Listen

    Why do some have it all, and others they have none?
    Why do some have it all, and others they have nothing?
