The human incompetence and its consequence;

Sub-human intolerance hitting home.

This stupid, old prejudice and its consequence; civilian rights are not right for ALL deserve rights, large and small.

Rise and fall...each breath could be the last...chances have all come and past.

Why can't we just shake the urge to end everything?

Property lines slice through the earth.

The sudden urge to control our surroundings

Money and time now define their worthless we rise and we fall.

Rise and fall...each breath could be the last...chances have all come and past.

Fighting for land to own...and man will always find reasons for war.

Fighting wars yields bitter rewards so lets contemplate what to fight for...

From the oceans we rise!
To the ashes we fall!
All for one...not one for all!

Where do we go when we no longer exist? Apologies are useless, they're nothing, they're impotent

To savor the taste of youth and sweet control... Hierarchal classes split the masses - pray your ranking's high.

Off-white, low-life, nuisance in a flawless life, ground underfoot like ashes.
The world's a fucking gas chamber

Populations rise and fall.

    General CommentI think this song is about capitalism and only wanting whats best for you. Also it may be talking about how humans treat each other and saying that everyone should be treated the same no matter ethnicity or class etc.
