When I heard prime ministers speak through frequencies
I knew I had found it
My entire life leading up to a moment
Where I could give my worth in official head counts
I'm still waiting for that moment
In basic, I was taught how to kill and how to cope
I'm still waiting for that moment

They told me, "Be desensitized in everything you do
(Over and over and ove and over)
Anyone beneath a different banner than you doesn't deserve a dog's death
(Over and over and ove and over)
They're less human than us
Don't mourn, don't grieve, don't lose any sleep
As you fire off rounds into their chests"

When we heard drill sergeants scream, we, the crowd, agreed
Cut off from society
Worked until delirium until we believed
We were given a new war-friendly, state-sanctioned morality
