Choke back the lies that you've been fed. (choke back the lies)
Bleed for your ignorance, suffer and die for it.
[x2]

We are the dead, nothing left to bleed.
Too numb to feel a fucking thing, to blind to see.
They are the ones that took our eyes,
forcing morality upon the masses longing to believe.
Their suffering was not entirely in vain.

Choke back the lies that you've been fed. (choke back the lies)
Bleed for you're ignorance, suffer and die for it.
[x2]

With every breath we pray to die.
Lost faith in God and suicide.
We've closed our eyes, now give us something to believe.
Our salvation, man made doctrine.
The blind will lead the blind into the open arms of Hell.

Choke back the lies that you've been fed. (choke back the lies)
Bleed for your ignorance, suffer and die for it.

"Lay down your life with dignity. Don't lay down with tears and agony.
There's nothing to death. It's like, it's just stepping over to another
plane. Don't be this way. Stop this hysterics. This is not the way for
us to die. We must die with some dignity."

We are the dead, nothing left to bleed.
Too numb to feel a fucking thing, to blind to see.
They are the ones that took our eyes,
forcing morality upon the masses longing to believe.
Their suffering was not entirely in vain.

Choke back the lies that you've been fed. (choke back the lies)
Bleed for your ignorance, suffer and die for it.
[x2]

"I tell you, I don't care how many screams you hear. I don't care how
many anguished cries. Death is a million times preferable to ten more
days of this life. If you knew what was ahead of you - If you knew what
was ahead of you, you'd be glad to be stepping over tonight. Adults,
adults, adults, I call on you to stop this nonsense. I call on you to
stop exciting your children when all they're doing is going to a quiet
rest. I call on you to stop this now, if you have any respect at all.
No more pain now. No more pain. All we're doing is laying down our lives.
We're not letting them take our lives. We're laying down our lives. Peace
in their lives, they just want peace. Take our life from us. We laid it
down. We got tired. We didn't commit suicide, we committed an act of
revolutionary suicide protesting the conditions of an inhumane world.
(music)"
