The distortions of history, barriers from original truth
Man-made distance, accounts of time fog
TEMPORAL OBSCURITY, MISINFORMATION

Fear and ignorance built a religion, exploit seasons of discontent
Relentless war, revenge set in motion
RADICAL PROPAGANDA, ENEMIES OF PROGRESS

Turn back the clock, 8th century
BACKWARD THINKING MORONS, PERPETUAL BATTLE

Fear of losing control of morality
FOSTERING INTOLERANCE, BREEDING PERSECUTION
Too many problems, to get involved
FUCK THE MIDDLE EAST, NOTHING'S EVER GOING TO CHANGE

Impatience with the changing times
LAST RESORT OF VIOLENCE, THE FIRST AND ONLY METHOD

Killing for religion, horror and shameful tyranny
Inquisitions and war crusades
A SHORT-LIVED EMBARRASSMENT OF COLD DARK AGES

Ignorance of the dusty regions, still have not found enlightenment
Occupied by belligerent jihad
FOSTERING A WAY OF LIFE, NO PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE

Impetus of suicide, LIVING FOR A SUDDEN DEATH
Embellished reward, IMAGINARY THREAT
Irrational destruction, PREJUDICE SOLIDIFIED
Earthly hope abandoned, PRESUMED FOR GOD'S WILL
Emptiness consumes you, VACANT AND FRUSTRATED
Wondering why your world, OF SHIT NEVER CHANGES
Young, dumb, expendable, BRAINWASHED TO FOLLOW ORDERS
Seeing nothing, knowing nothing, fuck it all

ECHOING MANTRA THERE IS NO ESCAPE, CHOOSING A LESSER BITTERNESS
NEGATIVE OUTLOOK OF BLINDED EYES, YOU MADE YOUR WORLD A PRISON
UNWITTING SOLDIERS FILLED WITH LIES, LUST FROM HEAVEN, ESCAPE FROM HELL
UNCIVILIZED INTOLERANCE, EXTREMIST VIEWS ARE DOOMED TO FAIL

Violence, secretarian conflict, obstinates fallacies, unredeemed by time
Fighting a war, that cannot be won, repression of the many by the few
Marridom, is an illusion, mass produced sacrifice, stripped of all nobility
Stubborn pride, in a losing situation, you are already, fucked for life

Throwing lives away, achieving nothing, driving up the death toll, glorified mass murder
Tiresome waste, for thousands of years, useless, impotent, stagnant

When we come to fuck you up, there is no persecution
Conquest and self-preservation, MIGHT IS RIGHT FOR SLAUGHTER

Unevolve society, fatal flaw eternal
Humankind does not obey, THE STENCH OF OPPRESSION

    General CommentNo, this is insidious repression... Right lyrics for this song:

    Faces the generation reduced to vacant stares
    Heads filled with TV static, buying its shallow lies
    Jaded passionless whores, raping the desires of all
    Dark intentions luring, false sense of security
    I protect this sickness, as I watch in disdain

    Their disease I guard
    This bastardized American dream
    State sponsored psychosis, burned in mass consumption
    Every gallon wasted
    Is ten more soldiers I must kill
    Symptoms of consumption
    Appetite for self-destruction
    Free thought extinguished
    Reign of dull complacency
    Compulsive over-indulgence
    Media-trained responses
    Policy accommodations
    Enraging our enemies

    Incompetence facilitates attacks on native soil
    Misdirection, weak responses, future wars encouraged

    [SOLO: Gallagher]

    Refusal to resist the conditioning
    Calculated flaws build dependency
    Shallow fulfillment, relentless pursuit
    The emptiness will never be satisfied
    Culture of corpulence, overextended
    Inflated existence, perpetuating conquest
    Worldwide deployment to maintain control
    Quelling backlashes of outrage
    Fighting the next face of terror
    Prepared for each new conflict
    You might as well submit
