lyrics

Bleed it out

Can you not feel it in everything
The symptoms of a world unraveling
A dull fatigue that's slowly been setting in
And now we're wearing down to nothing

Is it not strange how there's only few
Who feel the illness rage
We are meant to fall apart

Everyone has a story to tell
About how they've been
Made to keep drowning

We cannot live
Unless we find a way to make it through
The sickness burns inside and keeps us under
We cannot live
Unless we find a way to take control
We pay this price in blood and our humanity

Our humanity

A myth has spread amongst the fold
That the stolen money and power is well deserved
But this selfish ruse is getting old
You don't lie to me

This is a virus of greed
Fed by uncaring hoarders
One side is trying to live their lives
While the other claims everything

Time to bleed it out
And kill the infection

We string them up by their silken ties
Or their conflict jewellery
Slit the throats of the unkind
Let their wealth wash over us

Time to bleed it out
And kill the infection

Remember nothing changes all by itself
So the choice is steady progress or revolution

We cannot live
Unless we find a way to make it through
The sickness burns inside and keeps us under
We cannot live
Unless we find a way to take control
We pay this price in blood and our humanity

Go!

We are disappointed in your selfishness
These stewards of our lives have chosen to protect themselves
Cocooned by their avarice and callousness
Blind to those who labour
We raised you up to guide us
We can just as easily bury you
