the world
is going to hell

                      and
               we're in
 the cheap seats

               every step we take
               takes us closer
               to the grave

 

               i t ' s   a l l   t e r m i n a l
               

                                               and I'm sure
               
                                  I ' m   G o n n a   d i e

                                  the day before
                                  they find
                                  the cure
                                  for death

 

              W h a t   n o w    ?

              the gods
              have all
              gone
                                and
       
                           there's
                          no-one
                   to worship


 I n   a   w i l d e r n e s s                                                                                                                  o f    m i r r o r s

 

secrecy is myth
solitude an illusion

                       no one
                        is coming
                        to save us

                                    we are

                                    the leaders
                                    the liberators
                                     the revolutionaries

                                              our ancestors
                                                    prayed for

                                      we are our own

                                          s a l v a t i o n

 

                            Peace
ain't always peaceful

Violence
grows between
          the seams
    of discontent

                                      Different mask
                                      same face

                                      Different hunt
                                           same chase

                                      Different cause
                                      same case

                                      Different flava
                                            same taste

                                      Different skin
                                            same race
                 
    

  D i f f e r e n t   C i r c u m s t a n c e
                                         S a m e  F a t e

 

          One's entire life

                                            compressed

                                             into one
                                             final breath

 

                                             e x h a l e d  .  .

                                              t h e n:

 

                                               lke magic
                                               you're gone

                      y o u    n e v e r   e x i s t e d
 

              the only evidence
                   that premisses
                      one was here

              are the footprints

                      m a d e

                       on ground
              once walked on


         t h e   r e a p e r   c o m e s

 
                      and again

                        we still

                          ain't

                        r e a d y

The inevitability is that the reaper comes if you're ready or not. For liberation to come, you need to be ready to ensure that it does. ONE. PEACE AND LOVE.
