the system works if you go along
you're pepper sprayed when you say it’s wrong
it's business above ethics and human rights
shake hands and smile for the flashing lights
long hot summer turn to freezing winters
riots die out but the problems linger
and we bury our heads in a mound of lies
that we see as truths in these frightened eyes

dying for the causes
lining the pockets
of other men

they shipped you off to the middle east
to fight for North American democracy
nationalistic rhetoric had you fooled
marched in time to die for fuel
but who were the ones that stood to gain
from all the spoils that could be obtained?
and who got left holding the bag?
his only refuge an anthem and flag

and I wonder what it will take
for us to learn from all of their mistakes
is this some noble cause? or fucking pride that's got you holding this gun
because despite what you think
what they say is rarely ever the truth
and time again it's all so clear
you finally see who is being used
but we're still finding ways in our hearts
to justify it all
