We are the antidote and also the disease.
We're the oppressors who posses marks of the beast.

Mankind deserves this,
A catalyst for deconstruction.
A scapegoat to hold humanity on its knees.

A self-inflicted social anarchy to frighten the population into submission.
Intricate color schemes on TV hypnotize them while they sleep,
And from behind the scenes inject a fatal dose of misery.

So let these structures fall.
As buildings crumble,
Watch this metropolis transform to ruins.

We have no sympathy.
Victims lungs overflown with debris,
Their fractured bones exposed,
Lacerated is their skin.
This is a demonstration in the clout of government:
Failure to conform equals destruction.

At the end of this world we hold all the answers.
At the end of this world you'll posses only misery.

    General CommentAdam is a great lyricist.
    Amazing writing and gives out a simple single message that can be only explained by human-kind.

    We are the destruction of our own kind but, we can change the outcome. Ever since 9/11, it has opened the eyes of many people across the world. When years go by though, people are not so gullible anymore. We fear for the end of times so we rush to the nearest church and then they feed us more fear. Whenever we are the cause of the fear we've created.

    "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

    General CommentThis song is about the Illuminati and was inspired by the 9/11 events. I have proof by the words of the man himself Adam Warren.
