The rifle on your back is not a substitute for peace
The blood that's on your hands is not a substitute for elbow grease
The war machine is marching, hear the wheel's steady turn
The people want an answer, that's another book to burn
What seems so wrecked in retrospect, it once had seemed so elegant
Solutions never final, all surviving is the arrogance
What matters is the message, not the era, state, or dialect
What matters is the sickness, not the symptoms, not who we elect

Follow the leader, boys
Close your eyes and die

Having buried all the answers, we lament they're hard to find
And if you take an eye for eye each time you'll find it leaves you blind
To err, they say, is human, can't we learn from our mistakes?
Taking ever more than yesterday, well how much will tomorrow take?
I'm having double-vision, no, I'm having deja vu, my friend
I saw this place so long ago, I'd thought we'd passed it by again
I've got no time for all of this, I've really gotta be someplace
No time to say goodbye, hello, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late

Follow the leader, boys
Close your eyes and die
Swallow your pride
With a side of cyanide
I know it hurts to lose your life
It hurts more to lose your mind
Follow the leader, boys
Close your eyes and die

History is this story
Misanthropy or mystery
It's blistering with misery
Redundant in redundancy
And physically, it's crippling
A mass effect still rippling
Through rivers time has yet to see
A travesty, to-do list reads:
Take all but what's been granted me
Deny what happened factually
Deny what happened actually
Deny what's actually happening
A rifle bead's a sight to see
It seems like might, alright with me
Cause now I don't fear anything
Except the ones protecting me

You're waking up the dead, now you regret what they have said
The weakest ones still claim the lead, the wisest men remain the led
There's something wicked this way comes, the sound it makes is deafening
I've seen a time like times before seems like the time we're entering

Follow the leader, boys
Close your eyes and die
Cause this ain't any time
To be out there looking for a light
I know it hurts to lose your life
It hurts more to lose your mind
Follow the leader, boys
Close your eyes and die
