Lyrics

 

TRUST IN FIRE

Those banks tried to burn us
Robber barons of 2010
These foxes never forget
We’ll tunnel out the government

Once done and twice unsaid
They’ll burn us in our beds
No remorse and no regret
Trust in fire
Trust in fire

Machine tried to ground me down
Gave me the run around
These foxes never sleep
History will not repeat

They tried to burn us out
We’ll burn them to the ground
Occupy the government
Trust in fire
Trust in fire

I place my trust
Trust in us
in the U.S. of we
I place my trust
Trust in us
in the U.S. of we

I work for me
I believe in we
in the power to be

I work for me
I believe in we
in the power to be

I place my trust
Trust in us
in the U.S. of we
I place my trust
Trust in us
in the U.S. of we

Those banks tried to burn us
Robber barons of 2010
These foxes never forget
We’ll tunnel out the government

Once done and twice unsaid
They’ll burn us in our beds
No remorse and no regret

Trust in fire!

 

ARAB SPRING

Reach for the skies
Into oblivion
Open their eyes
Brave young civilians

Reach for the skies
Beyond oblivion
Opening eyes
to turning millions

Through a cheap disguise
Blood is seeping
Still vermillion

Lightning gathers in the clouds
They cannot shoot each raindrop down
Cast lots. Choose chosen few

Pyramids turn upside down
Fruit cart vendors be renowned
Place bets. Pick your perfect few.

Lightning gathers in the clouds
they cannot shoot each raindrop down
Yet the storm still brews

Reach for the skies
Into oblivion
Open their eyes
Brave young civilians

Reach for the skies
Beyond oblivion
Opening eyes
to turning millions

Through a cheap disguise
Blood is seeping
Still vermillion

Lightning gathers in the clouds
they cannot shoot each raindrop down
but the storm still brews

 

DEAD TO ME NOW

I met you in a fairy tale
or maybe I was high
Tried to make you wanna stay
to stay with me a while

You took me on a holiday
where all the sand was white
My inhibitions washed away
as i stared in your eyes

I laid in bed next to you
in an tangled web of lies
Hearts pounding trembling
now blood runs from my eyes

Die die die
Why won’t you die
Dead to me now

Reality was sinking in
Prepare me for what’s next
I looked through your telephone
and I read all your texts
betrayal then consumed my life
and i read all the lies
blood rushing in my veins
and to me you have died

Die die die
Why won’t you die
Dead to me now

 

REVOLUTION

It’s time to be heard
We’ve got our demands
Assemble all your NERV
Revolution is at hand

Abolish fear
rights for the indigenous
Politicians can’t hear
they’re hiding behind opulence
Cops interfere
Streets are filled w violence

It’s time to Revolt
to be heard
We’ve got our demands
Assemble all your NERV
Revolution is at hand

The laissez faire
Economy don’t have your back
Rich subsidies
Common fallin through the cracks
Koch companies
Spewing out particulates

It’s time to revolt!

This world is nobody’s but ours
We can build another way

Start the Revolution
Join the Revolution
Fight the Revolution
Win the Revolution
Join Fight Win Now

Renew energy
Preventing more catastrophe
Share the wealth
A grassroots up economy
Divest from crude
Repeal corporate personhood

It’s time to revolt!

 

RIOT CROP

Break through Scratch up through the scorched earth’s crust
Hungry for Light, starving cracked seed, doused by greed
Disfigured Mutilated strain bread away from grain
Evil humans, spreading disease, a rampage of maladies

Riot Crop root out the round up Riot Crop
Riot Crop get it from the ground up Riot Crop [x2]

Violent departure
Evolutions stepdaughter’s heirlooms stripped away
Repressed reproductive depletion
Jailed cells bound in chains

Leaves of dominion
Ache for sun
Gassed by chloroform
Sewing rows of dissidence
Harvesting the resistance

Riot Crop root out the round up Riot Crop
Riot Crop get it from the ground up Riot Crop [x2]

Seeing double We’re in trouble Where are all the bees?
Sick and starving Growing nothing Agent of deceit
Food went digital Lost the original Forgot to save the seed
NERV damage Bovine wreckage Chemicasualties
No! Stop Monsanto!

Cross scarred barren fields
of labor’s bygone yields
Dry wings of death bear the husks
Swords plowshares killed

Dusters crash Dusters burn
Spurring earth abortions
Petrol subsides nitrates return
soil’s base intentions

Riot Crop root out the round up Riot Crop
Riot Crop get it from the ground up Riot Crop [x2]

Seeing double We’re in trouble Where are all the bees?
Sick and starving Growing nothing Agent of deceit
Food went digital Lost the original Forgot to save the seed
NERV damage Bovine wreckage Chemicasualties
No! Stop Monsanto!

By the time it was evident
Kraft foods was president
Obese gods gutted each other

The condition was permanent
Fake nutrition supplements
the only life supporters

Soil leeched of Minerals
Diminished residuals
Monocrop ruled supreme

High fructose corn bullets
Rained on the innocent
Elements turned enemy

Secretive GMOs
Blocked all the exit holes
Soylent replaced any green

Infertile fertilizer
was all that we paid for
with the soul of the future

Sparrows to gallows
the land all laid fallow
left for the love of no other

Bury the patents
Uproot the unnatural
for the love of your mother

 

CHUNK

You see it
You want it
You try it
You like it
You buy it
and throw it away

Yea we’re all deserving
of second hand servings
You covet today
tomorrow’s cliche

Shiny brand new piece of shit
Mass produced, replicate
Use a new one every day

You can’t throw me away.

There is no away.

 

Unintended Consequences of Economic Sanctions

We all have a motive
What’s your fuckin motive?
What’s your role in control
In a land you have no vote in
Half a million children dead
Albright said it’s worth it

Consequence
Self sefense
Boil over
Blowback

Global Blowback in your face. Human Race [x2]
Global Blowback

When all is lost at a human cost there’s nothing to gain, nothing to lose [x3]
All is lost at a human cost. Nothing left to fucking lose

Your family. Your friends. Your life. Your means.
Your possessions. Your pride. Your ideologies. [x2]

When you pay with your life, what are you affording?
Residual embargoes are a message we’re deporting
Palaces are stiffed with lies
Rotting bodies breeding flies
Dictators will still ignore
While sanctions crush the people’s lives

Global Blowback in your face. Human Race [x2]
Global Blowback

When all is lost at a human cost there’s nothing to gain, nothing to lose [x3]
All is lost at a human cost. Nothing left to fucking lose

 

Waiting for you (D.O.A.)

Right, I’m sitting here with a sharpened blade
Sitting here with a loaded gun
With my back to the sun
Just waiting for you

Waiting for you
Waiting for you

Right, I’m sitting here with a sharpened blade
Sitting here with a loaded gun
With my back to the sun
Just waiting for you
Waiting for you

 

PSYCHO EXES

All of your exes are psycho
and guess who made them so
but I’ll never be another beautiful freak
in your twisted circus sideshow

Psycho

All of your exes are psycho
and guess who made them so
but I’ll never be another beautiful freak
in your twisted circus sideshow

Psycho

I’m not a little doll in your dollhouse
not a puppet on a string
I’m not some cardboard girl inside your fucked up world
I’m not your plaything
I’ll come out and play with you
But I’m not your plaything
