I deny the charge of treason
Open wide for your daily dose
Justice doesn’t go with truth
It goes with those who pay the most

Live through the lies you see
To be all that you can be
I think you’ll agree it’s time we end this legacy now

Say your last good-bye, it’s the end of the line
You claim you want peace, that your motives are pure
But you bury the truth and deny them the cure
Then kill the messenger just to be sure

War machines and tragic scenes
Are just Big Brother’s broken toys
Demagogues and pundits all
Conceal with their self‐righteous noise

Bring me the messengers head!

Make your choice
Raise your voice

Face it, embrace it, and fucking erase it

Years of cloak and dagger rule
Eliciting my battle cry
Better to die demanding peace
Than live your life never asking why
