Will they see
Will they hear
Will the see this
Will they feel this
Will they hear this
Voice of Resistance
Or will they bring us down for their bloodshed
Trade us all 'till black gold reigns
Fought this fight, there's no end in sight
Except for our rights, Will they blind us all?
"Be all that you can be"
Forever in vain our wasted beliefs
Erase the truth
So with that fall from grace will they burn it all down in an emphatic
Fading away
Fading away
To this time
To where we began
Forever from cleansing the blood on our hands
Release the truth
Destroyed in anguish another million faceless
And I wish we had eyes to view
Our demise
Tomorrow, together we rise
With their fallen disguise we must
Hunt the despised
Theives; high class murderers
They can't
Taste this anger that flows through our veins
A separation of our own god damned nation that lets us die
Leaders that follow a golden tomorrow they
Bleed us dry
We let them rise

    General CommentBlack Gold = Oil

    I think that this song is about the war, how soldiers are dying left, right, and center for a corrupt politician's greed for money and power. We gotta fight back! We can't let this happen any longer!

    My InterpretationThis song is definitly about the illuminati and the corrupt governments, politicians, companies, media etc. 'Leaders that follow a golden tommorow' , in the bible in revelation the anti christ will rule a thousand years (the golden age). 'Release the truth' about the lies fed by the media, aids, the war on terror, global warming, swine flu, democracy etc. 'will they blind us all' 'i wish we had eyes to see our demise', it means that people are believing the bullshit and are not opening their eyes to see how fucked up the world is. Ask yourself: how can things just get worse and worse more suffering more wars people starving to death, while the rich get more rich. where does it all originate, surely things cant jst get fucked up by itself.

    General CommentIronic that a previous commenter listed global warming as a lie in response to an anti-oil company song. He is repeating the lie perpetuated by the big oil companies themselves... By the way, what exactly is the "aids" lie? Don't mistakenly believe every dissenting opinion just because you don't like those who spout the mainstream opinion.
