lyrics

Beyond the Point of No Return

hide / turn away your eyes / no regard for the suffering / blind to the pain you've seen / forgetting your own dire origins / lie sheltering your spawn / you dehumanize the poor / it is the only way to feel less culpable / civilization was created to conserve the power of the greedy few / coaxing the uneducated into servitude / collect the product smile and give them nothing / point the finger / concentrate the hate on the intellectuals / blameless they bathe in gold and wine / it is in our nature to need someone to blame / to deny you play a role is to deny the shame / social conditioning / violence sickening / selfish desire to be superior / political inoculation / tarnished moral core / bigotry the only way to shield you from the horror / the majority of humanity with nothing to lose / beyond the point of no return / violation of human rights and genocide / all began with concentration of wealth and power / the only way to cure the earth of its suffering / is to destroy the bedrock of inequality / systematically dismantle currency and weaponry / manage to eliminate all human greed / truthfully this is impossible / dark impulses are highly ingrained / concentrated power doesn't dissipate / empathy is not instinctual / facades rarely fade / the sum of human knowledge to this point / hasn't shown a fraction of a plan / to separate depravity from man / we have been indoctrinated so / completely from our birth / to view others as undeserved / of their portion of the earth / understand the truth / they are just as sick / disgusting just like all the rest

[Solo: Colin Butler]

it is in our nature to need someone to blame / to deny you play a role is to deny the shame / social conditioning / violence sickening selfish desire to be superior / political inoculation / tarnished moral core / bigotry the only way to shield you from the horror / the majority of humanity with nothing to lose / beyond the point of no return / millions perish every year from starvation and plague / with cooperation we could have saved them / an idealist’s dream / never to be seen / too stuck in cultural boundaries seen as sacred / as you're sitting on your throne / divine privilege / cabinet full of rotting wasted food / remember this / nothing’s permanent / not one fucking cent / those you pushed away will be laughing when they dump you in your grave
