Empowered to enslave
Instructed to degrade, the burden of victory
The bloodlust of a generation

Blood on my hands
Mercy for the weak
Judgement incomplete

My vanity shields me
Monitored to issue control
Widespread propaganda
Masked hidden agendas

Our eyes receive, but can't perceive their lies.

    General CommentThis song is so cool and it sounds even better live.
    I'm pretty sure it is about George Bush.

    General CommentYes. It is about president Bush. When i went to see machine head, these guys were support along with caliban, and he got the whole crowd to shout out 'FUCK BUSH' before playing the song.
