We live in a fabled world
Of dreaming boys and wide-eyed girls
Where precious few get a fair start
These times can brake you
The times can leave you
Torn apart

The story starts with genocide
Slavery, those terrorized
Families, cultures torn apart
This ugly truth, only the start
And it's a white washed pact, the founding act
Revolution or contract?
To subjugate, to torture, to abuse
For the few

We live in a fabled world
Of terror day and night
All hidden in plain sight
We live in a fabled world
Where the poor and the weak are pawns for profit's sake

Lock up, mass incarcerate
The new Jim Crow, the new slave trade
If Doctor King were here today
He'd fight for much more than a dream
And you should go sign up, join the fight
The rich sleep while you kill tonight
Love thy enemy as yourself
As you carpet bomb him to hell

We live in a fabled world
Of terror day and night
All hidden in plain sight
We live in a fabled world
Where the poor and the weak are pawns for profit's sake

We live in a fabled world
A corprocratic killing field
Where fascist profits are a lock
These times can brake you
The times can leave you
Torn apart

(Yeah)

We live in a fabled world
Of terror day and night
All hidden in plain sight
We live in a fabled world
Where the poor and the weak are pawns for profit's sake

We live in a fabled world
We live in a fabled world
These times can brake you
The times can leave you
Torn apart

    General CommentA very wicked way to being the new album from a personal favourite band.

    The song basically states that the poor are fighting all the battles for the rich. The proletariat becomes more deprived and get killed in wars while the rich benefits from this. Very true to what happens
