"Remember, remember the fifth of November
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot
I see no reason why the Gunpowder Treason
should ever be forgot"
"The truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country"

Leviathan rising from the ocean of our fear
Falling to our knees we cower
Bequeathing to this edifice a monopoly of force
This parasitic beast is drunk with power

We've let our fears destroy our dignity and freedom
and turned our backs on all the prinicples we once held dear

"How did this happen? Who's to blame?
Truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty,
you need only look into a mirror"

Behemoth rises from the soils of jealousy
Equality enforced on pain of death
Mistaking mankind's progress for a dialectic truth
and smothering the spirit that's behind it

From each according to ability we'll give away
To each according to his need until the gears grind into dust

[CHORUS] Cast off the chains we've made
and refuse to dig our graves
Stand up, the lives we save
will be our own

Reclaiming liberty
We'll starve the beast

[Newscasts]
We've let our fears destroy our dignity and freedom
and placed ourselves beneath the heel of our own entitlement
[CHORUS]
[Newscasts]
