How far will it go?
When will you be satisfied?
This rising toll
Can never be justified…

Stop!

They followed you and they complied
With your plans for pre-emption.
When will you give up the lie
And state your true intentions?

How far will it go?
When will you be satisfied?
This rising toll
Can never be justified…

Stop!
The vein is collapsing; this wound just never seems to mend.
Stop!
The blood you’re spilling will choke you in the end.

So just give in, and follow the drones.
A nation of consumption shouldn’t challenge its role.
Just believe, and fall in line.
Freedom is a privilege that’s been left behind.

How far will it go?
When will you be satisfied?
This rising toll
Can never be justified…

Stop!
The vein is collapsing; this wound just never seems to mend.
Stop!
The blood you’re spilling will choke you in the end.

You say it’s for protection.
You say you’re justified.
But you were never threatened.
Your policy was built on lies.
