"This Lying World" as written by Mike Justian, John Maggard, Paul Mcgrath, Trevor Phipps and Ken Susi....
Be afraid of infection
Be scared of evil ways
Be scared for your protection
Best watch your every stop

Instinctual appeal to fear
Collapse and paralyze
Far gone is good intention
Smokescreen to commercialize
Teller of tales spin us in a line

Front page impersonation
Cities burn; the shies will fall
Civilization reduced to nothing
Disease will spread to all

We buy so we survive
Feel the acid rain corrode
I want to take a picture
Our lives would look disguised
Wash away this lying world

Terminate this iron fist
Strangled are we by the bastards of fascist culture
Strangled are we by the hands of our own people

ON the stage it's "our lives"
On the stage grows a mountain
As we stumble on we forget

Steel toed this path of corruption
Conceal and steer our minds away

    General CommentI was so dissapointed when he actually introduced a breakdown. Definatly a lyrical low point of Unearth.

    General Commentwhatever man I like the "breakdown." It is an ambiguous term. Who is to say that he meant the musical term. How could you let that dissapoint you? That is so dumb. haha.

    General CommentThis song seems to make many references to a storm and to evil. It seems to be another rip on conservative, corrupt government. "Terminate this irnon fist." "The bastards of facist culture." Overall, this is kind of trying too hard to be profound since the song doesn't even make alot of sense. With so few lyrics, and so little concrete wordage, I just feel like they are really just TRYING to be profound without having a real message. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

    General CommentI fuckin love this song, i sorta agree with the whole introducing the breakdown being stupid. It would work for a live show but why the hell on a recording? im pissed off that i missed out on seeing them live at sounds of the underground 2005

    General CommentUnearth should have the guitarist do some more vocals, you get a taste of it when the line " cities burn the skies will fall" but i wanna hear more. Unearth should add some deeper vocals into the mix
