Black and white rhetoric Enshrined in feeble minds The tongues that lick the boots The blind that lead the blind Never trust a manager The whip that’s in his hand Split the flesh upon the back Of his brother man Enamored by philosophies Of simple arrogance Mouths watering for hand downs Delivered with contempt So never trust a manager So willing to compete To become the fist of the Faceless elite And speaking of the elite Moving pieces from their spires Come join your brothers down here And be cast into the fire
After the collapse and the chaos that ensues The world will have the chance to become something new Those that descend from those who will survive Will see the dawn break through this hellish twilight At night we’ll gather around our fires To get fucked up and sing our songs The ancient songs of our people Those that will survive the fall We’ll wear hand-woven clothes if we wear clothing at all We’ll live in groups among overgrown crumbling walls We’ll search for food in a brave new wilderness We’ll live as free creatures as we were meant to live And of course there’ll still be violence We’re animals after all But we’ll stick to raids and ambushes No more total fucking war At night we’ll gather around our fires To get fucked up and sing our songs The ancient songs of our people Held the answers all along And the body-political No more bullshit democracies No nations and no fucking borders Only tight-knit communities
