I'm sinking yet I'll stride
A satchel filled with files
The secrets of the tribe
The cameras follow me for miles

Born a slave in 1984,
I discovered that my life is just a record they perform
A major album,
Please, tell me what you think of this one
Tell me what you think of this one

'Cause now I've sold you out
Now that there's no doubt
Now I've called you out
Now I've sold you out

They strapped me to the roof
and cut right through me
Diggin' through my wounds
I watched them helplessly in shock
Where are my pills, where is my former lover?
I've been betrayed by everyone I know who's blown my feeble cover

So tell me what you think of this one
Tell me what you think of this gun

Now I've sold you out
Now that there's no doubt
Now I've called you out
Now I've sold you out

'Cause the truth is this:
I finally know what they conceived so long ago
A baby wrapped, Defence a test,
The poison learned from what we're pressed
The needle burn, the Pendants fly, the shackles tear...
Could never guard
This place I live in hyper speed

I shall not live; I shall not breathe again

This is fuckin' ecstasy
This is fuckin' leprosy
This life that's fuckin' testin' me
I'm in fuckin' ecstasy

    General CommentI'm sprinting yet I stride, my satchel filled with files
    (The secrets of the tribe) The cameras follow me for miles
    Born a slave in 1984, discovered that my life is just a record they performed.
    A maze where I was placed
    Tell me what you think of this one
    Tell me what you think of this one
    Because now I've sold you out
    (Erase me, erase me I'm done)
    Now that there's no doubt
    (My feet find the freeway, I run)
    Now I've called you out
    (Erase me, erase me I'm done)
    Now I've sold you out
    They strap me to the roof and they cut right through me
    Digging through my wounds, I watch them hopelessly and choke:
    "Where are my pills? Where is my former lover?"
    I've been betrayed by everyone I know, don't blow my feeble cover.
    Tell me what you think of this one
    Tell me what you think of this gun
    Because now I've sold you out
    (Erase me, erase me I'm done)
    Now that there's no doubt
    (My feet find the freeway, I run)
    Now I've called you out
    (Erase me, erase me I'm done)
    Now I've sold you out
    Because the truth is this: I finally know what they conceived so long ago.
    A baby rat for them to test the poisons on, a rubber breast
    for me to learn dependence on. The shackles here, but now they're gone
    In place I live in hyperspeed. I shall not live. I shall not breathe again
    This is fucking ecstasy. This is fucking leprosy
    It's like they're fucking testing me. This is fucking ecstasy.

    General Commenti saw this live at the electric factory when he played it. max's voice is seriously amazing on this song, and it's going to be a major hit when the new album drops.

    I LOVE IT.

    General Comment"A major album, please" should be "A maze where I was placed." I think there are some more errors in the first few lines, but i'm not positive. I think "sinking" is "sprinting."

    "Helplessly in shock" is "hopelessly and choke."

    General CommentAlso:
    "Defence" is "for them"
    "poison learned from what we're pressed" is "poison's on a rubber press"
    "the pendants fly" is "dependence on"
    "tear could never guard" is "here are never gone"
    "This life that's" is "It's like they're"

    and various omissions of words like the.
