I don't like being alone
Burn up these streets
Turn up the stereo
Synthetic animals like me never have a home
I'm not the one you will be walking through
And if you kill him for me
Well then I'll kill him for you

I'll meet you down at the metro station
'Cause this motherfucker's got my motivation
Now I'm gonna show you how much I love you
Oh, my magazine is full of ugly things

Don't need this system
We can claim it if we try
Shoot up everything we see
And we'll find it on the wall
I hope you die

Manipulation just to form an alibi
You're the prototype for me
And if heaven wants to take us they can try

Oh, ah

Sometimes I sleep
I like to talk about television
Oh, I'm so glad right now
Heartbreak, heartbeats
Got the eyes on you
And give them something to say
'Cause I got something to prove

I don't have much of an education
But I got a knack for elimination
Now turn up the dial
Hit the tires that screech

Let's go
Right here
Right now
This is the bonus stage

Don't need this system
We can claim it if we try
Shoot up everything we see
And we'll find it on the wall
I hope you die

Manipulation
Just to form an alibi
You're the prototype for me
And if heaven wants to take us they can try

I want annihilation
A new design for X and Y
I want your violation
Deflect the system with our mind
Exterminate the dream
Extermination you can buy

Don't need this system
We can claim it if we try
Shoot up everything we see
And we'll find it on the wall
I hope you die

Manipulation just to form an alibi
You're the prototype for me
And if heaven wants to take us they can -

I hate you
Kill everybody
I hate you
Kill everybody

    General Commenti like the line "Oh, my magazine is full of ugly things" because normally magazines are full of people that are supposedly considered "beautiful." idk if this is what they were going for, but that's what i think of when i hear it

    General CommentOh my god, the chorus was bugging me so much 'cause it didn't really sound like "We can KILL them if we try" or "blame" or "cure", but I figured it out. He sings:

    'Don't need this system
    We can CLAIM it if we try
    Shoot up everything we see'...

    I am positive that's what he says, you can clearly hear a "CLAI-" sound at that word. :)

    Fucking badass song by the way.

    General CommentI think it's about the government and society and the media trying to make us all perfect citizens, clones of what they think of as the "perfect human being". It's about rebelling against that, and being whatever and whoever you want to be. It's brilliant, and a really fun song considering it's about how cr*p the world is. Awesome :D

    But, I still think you did an excellent job at working out these lyrics.
    Also, I absolutely love this song, and I really don't understand why it wasn't included on the album. After all, out of all the songs I've heard so far it's definitely the one that fits in best with the whole story of the Killjoys.

    Lyric CorrectionThe lyrics

    "Don't need this system
    We can kill them if we try"

    might also be

    "Don't need this system
    We can CURE them if we try"

    General CommentThis song isn't on the album because it promotes violence against the establishment. It's saying how we are capable of fighting the system and how television and sleep brainwashes people.

    General CommentThis song has a very Marilyn Manson vibe to it and I love that about it.
