We all know the rules by now
we've all heard enough about the suffering!
We all know how to live by these plans
and how to break them
read seven, seven
when i was born
whom to trust, no-one!
all this happens without consent
much to by surprise
read zero, zero
and an age misspent
i kept your bracelet an all those letters that you sent
in the distance i see
an alchemist, reaching for his gun
so you like hip hop?
well i've got soul
yet society dictates that i remain in control
as a quantum sits in it's rightful place
for one moment in time
and i cannot bear to watch this monument crack under capital strain
and i cannot believe that Pythagoras hid the truth and felt no shame
and to my mind there is a consequence
for every action, equal blame
for every god there is a censor, and a corporation gain
these are our numbers now
this is our cause
the threat is real we have become
what we've been sold
this is the document of the equation that brought us all down
are you listening?
read zero zero and counting down
i see Oppenheimer - he's counting down
we're built of fractions, chance, decisions,
a multitude of concepts
found in books no longer with us - thrown away
and now fusion is upon us
even atoms must relent
i've memorised the contents of all those letters that you sent
these are our demands
placed in sequence, clear and sound
for every action there is a future
written down, written down
these are the numbers now
this is our code
the threat is real we have become
what we've been sold
this is a document of the equation that brought us all down
but are you listening?
we can, we cannot lie
