Terrorized by threat of size the cog in the machine
He settles for the crooked line
Their pandering to the small points, abortion, guns and creed
Our polar voices by headlines

The common marks unite

But force the giant's hand
Cripple its demand
David and Goliath
Sanction appetite
Let the fuel run dry
It needs you to survive

Citizens too sensitive to face the urgency
They settle for fight, flight or freeze
Senses weary, hopeless meat, their children have to eat
The smallest monsters to defeat

Paralyzed by need

But force the giant's hand
Cripple its demand
David and Goliath
Sanction appetite
Let the fuel run dry
They need you to survive

Wide-eyed
Infected DNA
Injected into cells
Holding its host alive
They only strive for wealth

He thought he had to save the world
He only had to stop destroying it
He only had to stop
Waiving his rights
Supporting the stream
Of trickle down lies
The cog in the machine
The fundamental gene
They need it to survive

Wide-eyed
Infected DNA
Injected into cells
Holding its host alive
They only strive for wealth

Pigs

We only strive for wealth
We only strive for wealth
The cog in the machine
