"Our Time Honored Tradition Of Cannibalism" as written by and Nathan Gray Rob Avery....
From black panthers and the c.i.a
Into a sharp wit with a stupid slag
We've gone and dug our own hole cause everybody knows
We eat our own
So busy fighting each other while the real bastards run for cover
We shoot our own leaders down
Before those in power get the chance
So they sit back and laugh while we destroy ourselves
Wake up and shut up we've become our worst enemy
Turning inward to our own detriment
Forgetting the message we were to send
We've lost count up victims roll call
They're all our own look back at what we've done
Drove out the wrong side kicked sand in our own eyes
With every hero's welcome is another group on the side
Ready to fire if they step out of line
Just one mistake
And jealous hands claw away any hope for a better way
You bought it forget it goodbye
So saints be on your toes and heros be not proud
Because as soon as the people rise someone will tear you down
Wake up and shut up we've become our worst enemy

    General CommentThe DVD from Tomorrow Come Today handles this one: Nathan states that its about how Leftist thinking groups are losing focus on thier goal and spending more time infighting.

    My InterpretationSeems to be a suggestion that we as a society are so busy fighting ourselves (politics, social class, racism, sexism, us vs them) that we are weakening ourselves to a level that the "real" enemies don't need to fire a shot to be victorious.

    The Un-united States of America (maybe change it to the Divided States of America) under the current political climate seems to be a great correlation to what this song is talking about IMO.
