The lights will go out one by one
The ties that bind have come undone
This system buckles from the weight of lies and greed
The greater good’s turned obsolete

The politicians play their games
Our status quo remains the same
Contrived polemics keep the livestock in their place
While dirty money takes the race

The swelling crowds ain’t gonna stop
The paramilitary cops
The legionnaires align to polarize the one percents
Shut down the cameras; quell dissent

This ship’s been sinking all along
Thought things could change? Guess ya thought wrong

The pundit puppets prance along
Singing their endless piper’s songs
The television turns into a two-way mirror
They watch as your thoughts disappear

Consumer zombies mill around
Keeping their eyes glued to the ground
Behind the scenes massive machines chug on and on
Milking more money from their pawns

The prison populations grow
The warden’s pockets overflow
The gabble falls, failing to dodge the system’s flaws
Treating the symptoms, not the cause

This ship’s been sinking all along
Thought things could change? Guess ya thought wrong
