The lies have chased away the truth

Put it in its grave

Buried deep beneath the ground

Marked with a bloody stake


No shovel would dare come here

No one would stand so brave

We are but servants

Under the eye of the wicked we slave


They pull they tug they drag our strings

To make us run and jump

And they hide behind a hero's mask

Handing us the loaded gun


And they pile lies upon our backs

Till the weights too much to fight

And they carve our scowls into smiles

As our insides die


And the pain it numbs us so we walk like zombies

Like so many puppets dancing

Our laughs are mechanic our smiles are painted

Inside we're bleeding forever bleeding
