  • A life of work, is a life of crime
    You pay your taxes, you serve your time
    All that money, where does it go?
    Schools, prisons, hospitals, roads
    Government funding of military science
    Genetically engineered ultraviolent
    DNA, killer genes
    To program microchips, marines
    See stealth bombers and tomahawks
    On CNN, pay-per-view war

    Rise, rise
    Rise, rise

    Hey wage slave where's your profit share?
    They got ya down they're gonna keep you there
    Freeze your mind, metamorphose
    Cocaine karma in the heroin zone
    Multinational life is cheap
    Soldiers, workers, maggots meat
    Get on up, protest riot
    Are you collateral damage or a legitimate target?

    Rise, rise
    Rise, rise

    Sweet sixteen dehumanized
    Deaths head factory suicide
    Sweet sixteen dehumanized
    Deaths head factory suicide
    Sweet sixteen dehumanized
    Deaths head factory suicide
    Sweet sixteen dehumanized
    Deaths head factory suicide

    Rise, rise
