Enter the nightmare, this future does implore,
Hijack your city state, a prison nothing more.
Rounded up like cattle, You are forced in to the trains,
Nothing that you have ever known will bring you so much pain.

If you try to resist me you will find me inhumane,
But if you just submit you will live your life a slave.
Your love, your servitude will medicate your pain,
With our technology, we will always keep you safe.
The nightmare unfolds before my eyes
I will resist until the end of time
A spirit born free has to break these chains
We are lost, we must find our way.
We must find our way. We will find our way.

Microchipped by darts,their thoughts are not their own,
All that is left of human kind is now in their control.
Planned out through centuries, patient and contrived,
Pray on mans naivety, gullible and blind.

They say that you are a danger to everything that is pure,
There are too many of you, they are offering the cure.
Swift extermination if you refuse the game,
Arrested development, your vaccinated fate.

    My OpinionHalfordesque the new vocal. It's good, but Matt Barlow is Iced Earth's "vocal face".
