push me as far as you can, far away from yourselves.
but keep these words of mine in mind when it's your time.
i'm not the first and i won't be the last i assure you.
it won't be long before they're knocking at your door.

you're fighting a war now, a war over nothing.
a war that you're fighting with yourselves.
and you know it's a war that you can't win.

you have been feeding the monsters
without even knowing that our futures
are the price that we would pay.
now they are breeding the next generation of killers
without heart, without soul and without mind.

you're fighting a war now, a war over nothing.
a war that you're fighting with yourselves.
and you know it's a war that you can't win.

    General Commentthis song is about the great purges in 1936 wherein stalin ordered the killing of all bolsheviks opposed to his policy numbering in thousands killed. of the original bolshevik leaders of the october revolution of 1917 only he and trotsky, the leader of left opposition were left, the latter was later killed by stalin's order in 1940 in mexico. the chorus refers to the eventual collapse of the soviet union as predicted by trotsky which would not happen unless the workers themselves took power away from the bureaucrats.
