Silence is golden
Ingorance bliss
Better off not asking
What you'd rather forget

And as the vice grip choke holds
All of our freedoms are meeting their end
And for the wars they wage
Numberless troops lie wounded or dead

The beatings will continue
Until morale improves

Free your hate
Crusade in the days of rage
Perilous folly
Rise up against your fate
Free your hate
Crusade in the days of rage
Tireless cunning
Stampede and break your chains

Terror at gunpoint
Torture at large
Enemy combatant
Labeled a threat
Without trial or charge

Repetition of history
Messenger, prophet, martyr for god
All for once and for all
Reclaim your power
The tyrant must fall

The beatings will continue
Until morale improves

    General CommentSeems to be a comment on americas future... fascist nightmare society. I think he's speaking specifically of america because it's almost as if he's speaking to a group of people he's not a part of...

    General CommentThe song is about the shitstorm going on in the Middle East. More specifically, it is a pointed criticism of how America and the West have not changed their exploitative mentalities from the Imperial Era.
