It isn't a simple lie, a simple advertising campaign
it's a military campaign
it's management, maintenance, occupation
the soldiers aren't in the desert
they're in your fucking living room

let your fear die
feel eternal
become the endless animal
connect to what's real
take a closer look at what feels like free will

fight control
strangle the culture
bury reality
find one another
stay under-cover
don't run away

Hey!
We've all been conscripted
consume
pollute
perpetuate!
Hey!
We've all been the soldiers
we didn't know
we were exploited!
Hey!
We're already in alignment
It's time to choose our own Direction
Hey!
We all know the terrain
If you see a weakness
Exploit it

Let your fear die
Stop the horror film running in the back of your mind
Calmly get up from your seat
and walk slowly to the nearest exit
Don't be the target

intuitions found
when paradise is burning
beat down the walls
of your shrinking prison
breath the air
eat the vision
cross the lines
of the false division

the war is not in the desert
the war is on the asphalt
the war is on the concrete
the war IS the concrete

I think to myself, I just want to feel safe
Well I'm tired of looking for a prison, a prison to call home
Prison walls aren't strong enough to keep you safe
civilization, extermination! civilization, extermination!

you'll just drown in style with the rest of us

I see a crack in the all
Exploit it!
