lyrics

There's nothing left but the slightest vestige of a society
No safety net, no sense of belonging, or of owing something
Instead we are segmented, constant stimulation has replaced our dreams
Blinders on, senses dulled, staring at our little screens

There's a generation in jail, just wasting away
When the economy tanked, we bailed out the banks
and bonuses were still paid
Sell drugs on the streets you'll be doing hard time
But making millions lose their homes is treated like a victimless crime
The money keeps pouring into the best government the wealthy can buy

The protest always dies away
People are scared of their own shadows of course they're scared of change
We’ve gotta say, that this ends today

I think it's time we all valued ourselves just a little bit more
There's no person on earth who deserves seven hundred to your one
Will there ever come a day when you open your eyes and see
Wall Street's high cult of capital is nothing but a Ponzi scheme
Drowning in debt, drowning in a toxic culture that poisons everything

People march, hold hands and pray
But the few years we are allotted are quickly fading away
We’ve gotta say, that this ends today

Will the cycle of violence turn once more?
Will the masses rise up against the mighty? Will the guillotine roar?
Violence will beget more violence and blood will fill our streets
Until we finally learn that without justice there’s no peace
