about

I made this in the Summer. It was hot as hell.

lyrics

all I see is
progress
violence
conquest
all this talking shit about what?
and now we're born dead
born with three legs
and a hollowed out head
meet me in the cemetery
I can drink lead
I can even teach Americans
to get out of their bed
doing cartwheels on a holiday
and sleeping in the shed

X2

fuck what you're told
it's a story built for them
another Helter Skelter massacre
but listen
they're your friends!

Ignorance
Apathy
Ignorance
Apathy

Apathy pathetic synthetic prolific conquest
Majesty you're bleeding
I'm leaving you in the ditches
riches
permeate the britches
of the rascals in the castles
I can burn the tassels off
a graduate in transit
transient
everything dissolves into the ether
everything can wait until tomorrow
let's go eat McDonalds
let's digest the sorrow
Ignorance is bliss
until the bliss becomes too hollow

What would you do in a moment of pain
When your planet is burning because of your ignorance?
What would you do when your future is death?
What would you speak with your breath?
What would you do with your life?
Push it aside
Everything's fine
Everything's burning inside
Fear is controlling your mind
Look at the Sky
Red as the blood that you hide
Under your skin
Waiting to burst
Power and money will always come first
time to reverse
Roll up the hearse
I can see angels and devils converse
it is perverse
it is the sickness that we will all face
it is the poison we will all taste
It's the final call for alcohol

Apathy
Apathy
Apathy
Apathy
Apathy
Apathy
Apathy
Apathy

all I see is
progress
violence
conquest
all this talking shit about what?
and now we're born dead
born with three legs
and a hollowed out head
meet me in the cemetery
I can drink lead
I can even teach Americans
to get out of their bed
doing cartwheels on a holiday
and sleeping in the shed
