"Fictional Reality" as written by and Kerry King....
Crisis feeds the lunacy
All fear the new machine
Consumed democracy returns a socialist regime

It's laid to rest without a contest
All hail the new incompetence
Masking you see what to believe
A drone in the world of anarchy

Treachery, misery, violence, insanity
Scavengers closing in
Covering the truth again
Castrate society
Fictional reality

Insecurity afraid of things you cannot see
Words become the image of the enemy

You can't dissect what was correct
Vengeance based on how things were said
Can't see your side conflicts with mine
Frustrations lead to complete demise

Treachery, misery, violence, insanity
Scavengers closing in
Covering the truth again
Every trial conspiracy
Compassion is the enemy
Paralyze, criticize
Breaking through the wall of lies

Suicidal hierarchy racing in reverse
Everything that's done today will be tomorrow's curse

Screams in my head precede your death
Can't hold the rage when the truth is shed
Blind lead the bind line after line
In a world too shallow to defy

Treachery, misery, violence, insanity
Scavengers closing in
Covering the truth again
Castrate society
Fictional reality

    General CommentCrazy how 14 years ago (1994) they were predicting what is inevitably happening today. I think the truest line in all the song has to be "Everything that's done today will be tomorrow's curse."

    General Commenti think its about the government being corrupt and full of shit, and telling everyone lies to hide the truth. but if we got rid of our shit ass government it would be total chaos, and no one can live in a world like that.

    General CommentWhere do you get the part about government being a necessary evil from this song? All this song seems to be saying is the evil of government (and hierarchy, oppression etc.) and there doesn't seem to be anything about government being necessary.

    Also, I disagree with you that government is a necessary evil. If you read any anarchist literature (Noam Chomsky, Peter Kropotkin, Murray Bookchin, Micheal Albert, Mikhail Bakunin, Rudolph Rocker just to name a few) you will see that there are ways that a society can live without government. And it has been done. Excluding the tribal societies (many of them either had no chief or the chief had only religious duties) the main examples are the Spanish revolution from 1936 to 1939, the Israeli Kibbutz before 1948, the Zapatistas in Southern Mexico now, the Paris Commune in the late 1800s (which was kind of a government but the governmental aspect of it had no authority and the people controlled everything) and the countless small scale communes, co-operatives, autonomous Zones etc.
