Death Dance

Little eyes that do not see
And little ears that do not hear
Or will not, I don't know
Or maybe they do but just to our most private moments
And not our needs and wants like their job is
Every time you rally for ammunition and weapons
You kill the children You rallied and forced to be born without abortion
This is the future we were always afraid of
Hiding behind patriotism to earn more money
An entire industry built on war
To kill and Kill while the impoverished starve and perish from disease
Using religion as a guise for earning a wage
They rape us while all government kills each others people

Street Shooting

Hear the gunshots ring, through the valleys filled with fire
That no rain and no storm can soothe
See the bodies laying side by side in the killing fields
The craters of the bombs are mass graves
I see all the flags waving
Burning symbols into the night and into our heads
The impoverished and the incapacitated die
And the pigs of Washington laugh, louder and louder
Riots in the streets, Battle somewhere far away
It doesn't matter the time and place of this mayhem
War doesn't change it's mask
Someones hero is someone else's monster
With a gun in one hand and a medal in the other
One man with a gun in a shopping center
And bay of pigs in his mind
A Woman squats in the middle of the corn fields
With a wire hanger twisted and singed ends
Ready to pierce her womanhood
This world hasn't been fit for inheritance in a long time
A man is ripped off of his wife
As she is ripped apart and raped
A child shoots another spoonful inside of a needle
Outside their homes is a red and white and blue flag
Someone wiped their ass with it and will do life
And all these fiends will get away
In 11th grade all they talk about is the american dream
But I'm wide awake and I haven't had dreams for a long time
There's nothing to dream of and the people who did wasted
They wasted themselves, they wasted their lives, they wasted the whole world
For not a thing

We Became

They come at me with pitchforks and torches 
I guess I'm the monster they picked tonight
They don't give a fuck about you
That's why you're here and they're not
To them you're just another dollar sign, another follower for their ranks
Brainless and obedient, you don't care if they see you as flesh and bone
So go ahead and hunt me because you're disposable
I'll be you next week
They're going to send your children to war
Your subculture has become your religion
They don't need to be worried about getting to know you
You post it all online and your phones always listening
To focus better ads on you and your wallet
They're going to send your baby to war
And you'll let them because they hide behind military honor
When really there was never any
Tell me the glory in killing someone you've never met for the puppeteer
I'd love to hear how great you make mayhem and genocide sound
Sell me it, they've already sold me everything else
They want a return to the old days of yore before "corrupted youth"
But I see that vision riddled with killers
What's fashionable and trending?
Yesterday it's drugs, today it's guns
The special interest groups will sell you an agenda wrapped in change
But somethings not quite right
Even now you're in denial
