lyrics

The system wasn't supposed to be set up this way
altered definitions of reality
The richest need a war to support their dynasty
the market profit margin means invading sovereignty
Replace the people's leaders with a rigged democracy
Use the CIA to infiltrate opposing western beef
while they're cooking up our taxes, we're just shopping for relief
levy artificial debt for mortgage backed securities
corporations are not people they are psychopathic thieves
turning prisons into billions forming modern slavery, back to
Ronald Wilson Reagan funded trained Mujahideen
to fight the Russian forces in Afghanistan you see
Osama Bin Laden financed to the throne
Al Qaeda, Taliban, the Brotherhood from the grove
And Every president shows the same puppet logic
it go profiteering freedom means a military option
drone striking on the target, there ain't a target they're just bombing

massive attack upon the mass appeal
aftermath in the tragedy of a weapons guild
artifacts in faculties of the Vanderbilt s
Rockefeller s, Carnegie s, now every town a Walton will
they're building an empire of willing slaves
using our reptilian basic brains
time's wasting away what's your remedy
leave a legacy or lose another memory
equity in entropy consequence of settling
knowledge is the weaponry but most will boast that apathy, tacit passive gadgetry, martyr every casualty, freed
fearless as a teardrop bleeds

I know what is right and what is wrong
I'm sure as death these laws are flaws
new cigarettes in forms of jobs
So Robin Hood your vigilante cause
infiltrate the reigns of great,
stack your weight and get your start

blissful ignorance snickered capital fees
sickened incidents calculated with greed
figure differences polarizing our grief
new conditions is money to keep the peace
But all money's created out of a debt
and the public and private sector are loaning to keep ahead.
Our jobs and purchases strengthening the elite
and the interest with the inflation enslaves societies.
Pardon the logic, science and facts, we got dinosaurs wearing saddles while golfing on stolen land
and now you're asking if I hate our Uncle Sam
truth be damned to break the scam to shoot the hand of the oppressor
when the business of their business makes a hit-list of our efforts
accomplice to the conglomerate till they bend their backs to serve us
give a fuck about a CEO in social justice programs
majority of charities exist as tax deductions
billions upon billions and they send it overseas
to evade the type of taxes that is forced on you and me
and they hire new attorneys to keep drafting legal jargon
and present their new equation to the lobbyists they market
stuff their new semantics into convoluted bills
and let's not forget the pork barrel spending for the thrill
what a deal, it's a steal like how they colonize to kill
the true Holocaust began, when the Pilgrims came to build

and this is not the end, everywhere I bring this message new beginnings taking stead
for the retribution, revolution action up ahead, i'm already in the kitchen kneading through this doughy bread.

I know what is right and what is wrong
I'm sure as death these laws are flaws
new cigarettes in forms of jobs
So Robin Hood your vigilante cause
infiltrate the reigns of great,
stack your weight and get your start

moment of silence as the willing are instilled
moment of silence as my teardrops pay the bill
