lyrics

Your Demise

madness is now institutionalized / born into a world in continual decline / existing with burdens you so zealously denied / with callousness they've grown aware / they've been cast aside / perpetually unwanted / sexually squandered / essentially neglected / broken and alone / feeding the profits / of psychopathic leaders / the myth of free will / forced into submission / squelching all of our trust / know that your safe society is broken / even with your guns and your propaganda / the deviant majority has awoken / prying in the bathrooms and spying in the classrooms / and drones in the sky and cameras at home / you want us on our knees / exalting the fictional wasteland inside of our phones / embrace the end no / longer digitized / planning your demise / right in front of your face / seeking to erase / the world of hate created by you / violence / the lies that you cannot unsay / you've created the plague that's rotting away / your means of control / reaching for the truth / pandering to our innate fears / turning us all against ourselves / while we squabble you pass your judgements / far away from effective scrutiny / as you sleep in your cocoon of ignorance / night approaches and we are coming for you

[Solo: Malcolm Pugh]

helpless to avoid the weight of self-annihilation / as you ponder how to proceed / unprepared for the divine wrath upon you / we baptize the world in gasoline / and there's nowhere to run / reaping what you sow / your hell has just begun / nailed to the cross / of your own creation / there is no solution / there is no saving grace / the eulogy is written / you just have to say it / the future you've created / is only empty space

[Solo: Colin Butler]

as death approaches in your palace of obsolescence / our day begins and we are coming for you / upon the rubble of your civil society / the stench of blood and smoke burns in your nostrils / as revolution turns to retribution / you know your fate / in your tomb made of ash / you shall revert to the dirt you embodied / you will fade into obscurity / a withering monument to your shame / embrace the end / no longer digitized / dancing in the light / right in front of your face / now we have erased the world of hate created by you / silence the lives that you cannot replace / you've created the plague / that's rotting away your means of control / reaching for the truth / violence / was all you ever had to share / you smeared it into our face / put us in our place / now we can repay the same back to you / silence / the only thing you have to give / no one will remember your name
