He who holds the key
Bears the highest weapon
Those who cannot see
Race to face the cannon
I served so many masters
All inside my head
Slave! You put the shackles
In your own hands
Those who's serve the old paradigm
They're already - you're already dead!

In the wake of your apathy
Now is your chance to be
Your own living sacrifice
A generation's blood, the price

Invisible shield of security
Dissolved, exposed
Reduced to anarchy
Piles of the weak ever accumulating

Out of the ashes to arise
The Phoenix of dissolution
All you have is all you are
All I am is all I have

So let go of any doubt
We are the tribe of the chosen
To outlast this cruel reduction
Rise above the grey mass
And walk among the pure

Exits, protests, drone strikes
Famine, disease, death spikes
Soap box, gatherings, mobilize
Dawn of American Reich

Destroy the pacified
Wipe out the weak and codify

Archons exposed, denied
Matrix uprooted, redefined
Settlements imposed, confined
I will now define your rights

Death camps exposed, utilized
Mountains of corpses
Ground into powder lines
Zombie coke and deep fried humans rinds

Destroy the pacified
Wipe out the weak and codify
