Corpses pile up due to words spoken corrupt, trusting in a promise broken so abrupt

Lost in the politics spread by the reapers, not just vultures but far worse creatures

I’m talking about the human race, people won’t hesitate to erase those they hate

Its natural of course, competition fade away, but how many people gotta die this way?

 

And I see our minds all rotting again, any free thought will be led astray

All for the bigger picture seen only by the greats, them that have money may control our fate

I’m fighting with these words calling you to arms, when you hear the charm understand the harm

Harm is a us vs them mentality, regardless of who, death is still a tragedy

 

This is steeped in hypocrisy, id still fight to ensure my personal monopoly

To control the freedom of the self, to improve the induvial health

And then for my community, everybody involved saving souls with sincerity

But we are one people or we’re not, and if we’re not then the death will never stop

 

That’s just the truth of the matter, a lot of people die from getting fatter

Better economy doesn’t stop the death, just puts more boxes on a health check

But the poverty increases the debt, and the people die without ever getting a check

No way to pay for the air you breathe, and the air you breathe suffocates the we

So, we sleep.

This is how we speak this is how we speak.
This is how we dream this how we dream.
This is all we know this just how we be.
Killing one another for claims of security.

This is how we preach this is how we preach
This all we know this is what we breathe
A state of hypocrisy caused by a monopoly
Of force of course of course
