First there came a mass
A brilliant lights of flash
All across the President's skies
As he sits and laughs
He preaches non conformity
I don't think they see
They live for him and what he believes
A wrath of misery
Law, misery

Left to die alone
With their living farces
Think you could take my life away
To never get it back
No more need for societies
All the lives he took
The fault of law and majority
Rules in an open book

Leave me alone
Don't take it away
A place where I know
They're destined to take away

Now the lives they lead
Are left to broken dreams
Just when they thought
They had it all
Life's not what it seems
He preaches non conformity
I don't think they see
They live for him and what he believes
A life of misery

Leave me alone
Don't take it away
A place where I know
They're destined to take away

Don't take away
Society
(Day by day)
There'll come a day
(Day by day)
You're gonna pay
(Day by day)
A day of reckoning
(Day by day)
A day of reckoning
You're all gonna pay
You can't get away
