The world is run by the name on your ass Wardrobe determines social class Gorgio Armani owns your soul Keeping up with trends is all you know The car you drive the clothes you wear We’re all victims of the fashion state Rejecting others that aren’t your kin Classify others by their skin If blue is your life mine is red Get my ideas through your thick head The way you vote the way you think We’re all victims of the fascist state
What the fucks the score I cant keep up to date Your story always changes your lies now have a face The way we want to live seemed to pass you by Minor becomes major when apathy resides Hypocrisy Democracy Breeds Apathy They make more than you and god gave them the right To speak on your behalf and quell the masses fight Educate the kids and they will have their say You know they’re all religious we’ll bring them judgment day Change is what you want but fear is all you get You wanna lash in anger but you’re afraid of regret The thing about a king you’ll never have your say The future been decided the predetermined way
Gotta run gotta hide gotta get away Gotta run gotta hide gotta get away Smash the State abolish the system Red shovel rocket come and take us away Smash the State abolish the system Red shovel rocket come and take us away
Hows that working out for you Your tolerance lobotomy Isolated Christian life Fuck it all not for me The shepherd watches over He tells you where to go This is the Christian voice Tells you what you should know Not for me not for me Tolerance lobotomy Wake up from your crusade Your white parade of ignorance Gay or straight who gives a shit We’re all in this together now deal with it Hes different cuz hes black Shes different cuz shes brown Your neo fascist mentality You’re the ones to fucking blame
I shot Steven again and again He went the way of Kennedy Now he's fucking dead His tyranny is over It lasted far to long Ignorance for all Equality for some
Eyes closed while they steal our hard fought rights When we turn a blind eye the government runs wild Sleep sleep sleep While our freedoms are striped away Dream dream dream When you wake up it’ll be ok Conscious riots ring the bell Its voter apathy in response to over whelming greed the favorite corporation owns your country Laws to hide behind protect their privacy profiling your mind to fight anarchy monitor all we do thought crime runs supreme corrupt legislation plows on through
You should feel like a pedophile The way you fucked the kids There's no future just a lot of Fucking debt Tax breaks are the same as sodomy That means you fucked a lot of Assholes in society But political repetition Is such a fucking bore You’re not a politician You’re just a corporate whore Do more do less You did your worst Kicking and screaming Do more do less Got a mind of my own and im screaming out fuck the rest you should feel like a con artist the way you pulled your scam there’s no thought of a future in you plan tax breaks are just a lobotomy you fucked a lot off heads up in society your political repetition got you by the throat you’re not a politician you’re just a fucking joke
‘scuse me sir? Could I borrow your arm? And maybe your leg I’m in a bit of a bind Whats it gonna take to help your fellow kind Sorry hunny cant afford the groceries this month My rent went up $300 the landlord is a cunt And then I saw the ad the answer to my prayers For $50 a month it said Wanna live in my shed No heat no power but a roof is over head So what if I got a fucking lawnmower in my bed My wife she left but this you oughta know I don’t get lonely I got a fucking hoe…
