Goddamn, I'm human.
My life has value.
World looks good!
From the view in your corner office!
Confessions for your actions would be
The least that you could do.
Be honest.
You've always known that this would happen.
Now we're surrounded,
Questioned by the infallible.
“We'll decide what this life should be.”
They'll decide when
To give you the strength
Or take away your rights.
They'll be “for the people.”
Standing on the wrong side,
Our ideas will make them.
And our blood will stain their hands.
The knowledge has been passed down.
Initiate the sequence.
And they will make sure, damn sure!
That this whole thing will go off, without a hitch.
While the seasons continue changing.
It's up to us, to make the change.
You lose reputation, destroyed by your own ways.
With no hesitation, we're sacrificed for your escape.
Now as these days seem numbered, they will try.
Making a move to lock restraints on tight.
Their final showing.
Their change, it has to come in the form of a war.
