"Crushed" as written by and Jeffrey Ling Benjamin Gordon....
Brothers, my brothers is this all that we are
Sisters, my sisters we’ve been crushed by the fists of god

Welcome to the free world
Where nothing’s as it seems
Tell me, can you find a cure
When you can’t see, and you can’t feel the disease
Can you seek a higher truth
When you’re living on your knees
Where freedom grows from blood soaked soil
In the lands of hypocrisy

'Cause if you can’t see the chains tell me what use is a key
It’s cash, blood and oil, in the age of the refugee
They’re trying to buy our minds, we ain’t selling
Bang, bang, bang, hear they’re nailing down the coffins

Cut the strings, feel your heart start
Cut the cord
Crack this code of silence
All our lives in the hands of tyrants

Crushed by the fists of god (crushed)
Crushed by the fists of god (crushed)

We’ve been crushed by the fists of god
We’ve been crushed by the fists of god

To the left I see the rats and to the right I see the snakes
In my ear they’re whispering sweet sermons of cruel hate
So do you buy the fear, or do you buy the lies
Tell me, what will set us free
Do we kneel before the crooked few
Or do we bite the fucking hand that feeds

When death casts no shadow and hope carries no weight
Rise into the light and feel the shackles fade away
They fear what we know, we know how they break
Bang, bang, bang, drop the hammer of conscience

Cut the strings, feel your heart start
Cut the cord crack this code of silence all our lives

Crushed by the fists of god (crushed)
Crushed by the fists of god (crushed)

We’ve been crushed by the fists of god

We’re just waiting for the sky to fall
Yeah I’m just waiting
Feels like all our lives we’ve been waiting for the sky to fall
Feels like all this time we’ve been

Brothers, my brothers
Is this all that we are
Sisters, my sisters
We’ve been

Crushed by the fists of god
Crushed by the fists of god (crushed)
Crushed by the fists of god (crushed)

    General CommentI think this is one of the best songs in the album and one of its most ambitious records to date, this songs is kinda self explanatory, religion politics all taking from us instead of giving, zealots believing they will be saved when the world ends, and media giving us what the system wants (To the left I see the rats and to the right I see the snakes, In my ear they’re whispering sweet sermons of cruel hate
    So do you buy the fear, or do you buy the lies)

    My InterpretationI agree with @mariano102 however I would also like to add that what is being taken from us by government, politics, media, religion etc. is our freedom. In effect I feel that Parkway are saying that our freedoms have been crushed.

    Very much a cry to war ... live on your knees or die on your feet??
