And the system tells us how to react
And how to silence the tongue that teaches us
To fight back-to lose track
Putting limits on our ideas and telling
Us when to attack
And as I strive to defy this black reflection
I test the waters caring little for this section
Of simple minds--we come uninspired
Peacekeeper---streetsweeper
Livid lonely eyes...how

-You lie........they die

Freedom is just an afterthought
I'm distraught, I'm looking down the ass-end of sawed-off
And I believe in freewill, the right to kill
The right to dance on the bones in the minefields
My mind's running at ninety miles an hour
I'm feeling subtle and my mouth is growing sour
You won't be happy 'till everybody dies
I see the world through livid lonely eyes...how

-You lie........they die

We're not crazy
We've got blood on our hands
And if I tell you how to feel
Could you be alone
'cause I know it burns

Now what would you say if I said I'd blow up the people
killing the city
I am the God of all plastic energy
And I'm gonna jump track try no to laugh back
Wondering why you silly ass people
How you never know when to stop
And I sweat to the ticking of the clock

We're not crazy
We've got blood on our hands
And if I tell you how to feel
Could you be alone
'cause I know it burns
We can watch as the sun dies then we may
realize...
