lyrics

I seen leaders get elected, monuments get erected
The lonely percent celebrate while the rest are disrespected
Caviar cakes and champagne showers are blessed with
Daily occasions to consume them if the power selected

YOU, large universe with a small pond
We all fishes, feeling radioactive from the tall bombs
Tiny men drop, but we're not armed
We chose to invest the power of society in dot coms

Shit, blinded visions of higher wisdom that sits upon us
Blocked by the lying fiction a wild addiction to products
They flying missiles testing mixes and the line's official
Feels like if they working for themselves it means that they against you

Now think about it,
They educated you, so of course your judgment is clouded
You always stay in line yet never feel like a coward
In the night time, they take those who wanna be empowered


HOOK:

I was gonna go to sleep, but then I wrote a verse
Thinking about the hunter and the prey, and which role is worse
Die at the top with bloody hands or alone, solo
Thinking about what you would do if the roles reversed

Believe sacrifice's an option for the bigger church
People on the war boards all looking miniature
Die at the top with bloody hands or alone, solo
Cause not everybody is sleeping when you getting yours


Society is living immature
Concerned with false idols that rival the old that they bred in church
Texting to vote, presidents are superstars *BARACK!*
Puppets playing reality tv in front of peasant herds

The entire world at the mercy of the eagle's beak
Up at night cause important decisions are taken when people sleep
Turned to zombies, their dreams are filled with schemes, but
We're never gonna see a king lose his head to a guillotine

Again, evolution counter balances freedom of speech
Worst that can happen in terms of action a president's impeached
How is the mass supposed to cast an image of belief
In itself, when its a victim of its own leaders' deceit

Defeat, is not an option until that point is reached
I'm trying to make a change but some walls I cannot breach
Some knowl I cannot teach, for your own eyes have to see
What goes on behind the scenes while most people are asleep


HOOK:

I was gonna go to sleep, but then I wrote a verse
Thinking about the hunter and the prey, and which role is worse
Die at the top with bloody hands or alone, solo
Thinking about what you would do if the roles reversed

Believe sacrifice's an option for the bigger church
People on the war boards all looking miniature
Die at the top with bloody hands or alone, solo
Cause not everybody is sleeping when you getting yours
