lyrics

They say we’re making way but it’s just an illusion
You think the train is moving but you’re wrong
In fact it’s the one on the opposite track and we are standing still
Which to me feels more like moving back
What a nuisance, it takes less faith to believe in god than in evolution
We’re in a dark place heading for a darker future
At loose ends no solutions in view and no troubleshooters
Just more troublemakers contaminating all of our minds with their hatred
How can you not feel the pain of fathers being laid off
Loosing all purpose in life left in chaos
How can you not feel the hurt of men and women looking for food in the dirt
And how can you say they got what they deserved
As if they messed it up the day they picked their place of birth
How can you put money over life
Cutting back on healthcare on welfare cause money’s needed elsewhere Right, we need more fucking warships and special forces
To fight the lawless and devilish pirates and terrorists
Really just a bunch of desperate fisherman with leverage
The only thing we left ‘em with
Cause everything surrounding them is derelict
We force their country to open its borders
So all the fucking fish ends up in our commercial trawlers
Economic reasoning is seemingly flawless
We take their land their life, they take our orders

We’ve come so far but still we see
The same old dreary view as if nothing changed at all
And all we do is just stirring in the mess
Our fathers left for us and we’ll leave it to whoever will come next

At what point did we loose our compassion
I didn’t pay attention must have missed it by a fraction
And since when do we let fear cloud our better judgement
When did we get accustomed to putting all our trust in nothing but assumptions
All of a sudden second thoughts are old-fashioned and facts are redundant
Discussions denounced as distraction
Reluctance a weakness, action is what’s needed
It’s the age of assassins and reapers
Pacifists, human rights activists are needless
Take away their dignity cause that’ll leave ‘em speechless
It’s no secret, it’s just the mechanics
Don’t get in the way of big money or you’ve had it
Why don’t you ask Chelsea Manning
Devotion to the truth can get you damaged
Ask Assange and Snowden, a lot of whistles to be found, just don’t you dare to blow them
Causing a commotion
At the end of which you’ll find a fist up your colon
Or your body at the bottom of the ocean
