I hate you, the pigs who turn the screws, I hate everything you stand for
I hate the world we've bred, political pigs we've fed, our fathers left us nothing but a dead world
Beyond repair, down in despair, our fathers left us nothing
Choking on the influx of technology I realize the politics of ecstasy
And we can't change what's in stone

We've been had. Injustice to the masses, destroy the land and crush the poor
The pigs are fueled by greed, political ways obscene, our fathers left corruption in this dead world
Beyond repair, down in despair, our fathers left us nothing
Choking on the puke of their industry, regurgitated propaganda ministry

Freedom's never free, the politics of ecstasy are these:
Freedom's never free, these are the politics of ecstasy:

I hate you, the pigs who turn the screws, I hate everything you stand for
I hate the world we've bred, political pigs we've fed, our fathers left us nothing but a dead world
Beyond repair down in despair, our fathers left us nothing
Choking on the influx of technology I realize the politics of ecstasy

Freedom's never free, the politics of ecstasy are these:
Freedom's never free, the politics of ecstasy are these:
If you take a step back and you realize your home can't be a perfect world
There's still hope the hate you fell will fade, injustice is gone:
Injustice is gone for a little while

    General CommentDoes anyone know who plays what solo in this song and when? I'm trying to figure out when Jeff and Pat solo, because this is one of those albums which annoyingly doesn't give that info.

    General CommentThe Politics of Ecstasy was a book written by Timothy Leary in the sixties. Of course Nevermore also have a song named after him. But it's just such a great title anyway, it's kind of like how bands such as Nevermore can talk about politics without sounding like politicians.
