Circle around the park
Joining hands in silence
Watch the evil black the sky
The storm has ripped the shelter
Of illusion from our brow
This power is no mystery to us now

Leave your spirit genocide
The cancer you wont remove
We cast our funeral rose inside
And bury the need to prove
Our mutilation is to gain from the system

Oh, turn your head away
From the screen, oh people
It will tell you nothing more
Dont suck the milk of flaccid Bill K
Publics empty promise
To the people that the public can ignore

This way of life is so devised
To snuff out the mind that moves
Moving with grace the men despise
And women have learned to lose
Throw off your shame
Or be a slave to the system

I see you take another drag
One more lost soul to raise your flag
The sky is a landfill
I see you take another drag
Lets see you take another drag

You like to dance to the rolling
Head of the adulteress
You sing in praise of suicide
We know youre useless
Like cops at the scene of the crime

With your steroids and your feedbag
And your stable and your trainer
I got a mail bomb for you Mr. Strong Arm

Throw out the stones from all the cemetery homes
For the violence of a nation gone by
Or the politics of weakness
And the garbage dump of souls
That will now black the sky

Their yellow haze and crowds of eyes
Will plug up the mind that moves
Moving with grace the men despise
And women have learned to lose
Well share our bodies
In disdain for the system

Oh, I see you take another drag
One nation bends to kiss the hag
The sky is a landfill
Let me see you take another drag
See you take another drag
I have no fear of this machine
