The Earth stood still for a moment
Feasting eyes on the feed that was chosen
Forcing down a pill
Deceptive and bitter
Fear is gripping the trigger

Never struck a chord
When the blood flowed
From a heart you didn’t know

Guided to their graves
In scarlet chains
Engaged, betrayed
Collateral slaves
Prepare to disembark
Butchered in the dark
Outgunned, outweighed
No one is safe

We’re conditioned to be afraid
Faceless figures control the game
Lips stitched shut speak violence
We’re conditioned to be afraid
Faceless figures we’re taught to blame
Lips stitched shut speak violence

Nothing that you hear
And nothing that you see
Nothing on the reel
Hasn’t passed through a screen
1984 in 2016

The Earth stood still for a moment
Feasting eyes on the feed that was chosen
Forcing down a pill
Deceptive and bitter
Fear is gripping the trigger

We’re conditioned to be afraid
Faceless figures control the game
Lips stitched shut speak violence
We’re conditioned to be afraid
Faceless figures we’re taught to blame
Lips stitched shut speak violence

Never struck a chord
When the blood flowed
From a heart, from a heart that you didn’t know
Never struck a chord
When the blood flowed
Now your dead friends are a part of the show
