For you who choose bondage, the world is a cage Paralyzed under their gaze These scraps of self, they're not enough But they're all that I could steal It's easier for you - you don't fucking feel Do you Subjugate our nightmares, bend them to their ends And they offer to share the dividends? A place in the shadow of the great guillotine And are you blessed, in these days of lifelessness? I'm choking on the rim of your righteousness Staring through the bars at the worlds we'll never know Lost in the city, the beaten crowds Those around you gagged and bound Smothered Caught Gasping in Panoptikon Defined by confines, condemned to live these lives No secrets safe from their eyes But what goes on in our minds goes on in your hearts Denied all creation, destruction is our bitter art We'll slip through the cracks, we're not afraid For every bent knee too shall break We'll dance in the shadow of the great guillotine That does its rhythmic work On each and every unbowed head One by one by one. Judgment Are you the sacred and the clean? One day we'll rise to mount the skies And tear your gods' towers down Freedom In the death rows (death throes) of this machine No freedom here, living in fear Until every wheel stops turning Until every channel goes dead Until every light goes out Until every city is burning Then we'll see some freedom!
