Ever since the days we were living in the caves
Some assumed leadership and others became slaves
Brother against brother
Cain and Abel were both wrong
At each other since the dawn of civilization

We ran out of the darkness like dirty human haunts
Into blazing enlightenment they call the Renaissance
Dividing of the classes, breeding ignorance and hate
Remember what you get what you amalgamate, church and state

Lest we forget
Lest we forget

Time waits for no one; it's forever moving on
Colonial development, employment of the gun
Kings and queens and presidents, power shifting schemes
Ending in a blaze of bombs and artillery

Lest we forget
Lest we forget

Here we're living now in what they call a
Modern world
Documents are signed and the banners are unfurled
A funny little people on a spinning little ball
The higher up the ladder, now
The further down you must fall

Lest we forget
Lest we forget
Lest we forget
Lest we forget

Oh, don't you ever forget
Oh, don't you ever forget
So don't you ever forget
So don't you ever forget
