Lyrics

1. PREEMPTIVE STRIKE

Incoming message
Simple, loud and clear
Materialized vengeance
Arrogance and fear
What is that you do not understand

No paperwork required
No stamps or signatures
No negotiation
No return adress
Still you look like you don't understand

This is your great chance to
An opportunity to
A brand new start for you to
A clean late for all your friends too

Bring ye forth the free markets
In which you'll give us free labour
Behold the modern, free slavery

Freedom has now struck you
Join us now or fuck you
Freedom now demands you
Freedom wants a thank you

Spoken like a true emperor
Spoken like a true conqueror
Spoken like a true terrorist




2. LIES 'R' US

Ripping through the darkness
Rays from spotlights drawing lines
Sending out a message
From which nobody can hide
Searching for a weakness
Or ignorance of any kind
Capital neon letters
Casting shadows in my mind

Prompting for attention
Making me feel sick
Insulting my intelligence
With every cheapish trick
What they're really after
Is as clear as the signs
The message isn't subtle
Between those neon lines

Lies 'r' us
We make up everything we're selling
In fear we trust
With it comes need and hypochondria
We rip the crust
Tear it off, and let new blood flow like
Tears from lush
And we squeeze, and we're laughing at you

Standing at the crossroads
The grave torment of choice
My silhuette defining
Against the background noise
Contemplating weapon
Sarcasm, irony or dis
Leaning towards candor
And sober analysis

Hello Hello Moto
I'm not sure I'm lovin' it
Santa's favourite soda
Will make you just as fit
And am I really worth it
Am I having it my way
I figure I'll just do it
I'll think different - as you say

Lies 'r' us...




3. STAY UNAWARE

Suits - shirts with matching ties
Dull by choice but watch the eyes
Sharp - and just like our shoes they shine
Despite the darkness there behind

We walk the finance district
Concrete, glass and steel
Corridors and airplanes, an all effective shield
From ordinary people left out of the deal
But most important keeps us
From how we really feel

Keep underestimating us, we don't care
The last laugh's ours
The joke's on you down there
Keep underestimating us, hide in your hair
Just stay unaware

Deal - in our world means steal
Trust - fund is the first thing that comes to mind
Right - politically correct
Loyal - the puppets we elect

"Structurally reforming","modernising states"
A "democratic process", with no open debate
We come up with phrases and names for everything
Just to keep you guessing, we don't call it what it is

Keep underestimating us, we don't care
The last laugh's ours
The joke's on you down there
Keep underestimating us, hide in your hair
Just stay

Robin Hood has since long gone away
No one that good in this egocentric day
Day and night, we're speeding past the signs
Yes traffic lights are just recommendations for our kind

Some have learned to put together two and two
And then they turn against us, nothing new
Naomi Klein, who shocked you into buying
"The confessions of an economic hitman" lies

Real - estate, we own the lot
Love - you bet it can be bought
Growth - in the third world we just put a straw
And yeah that's right - we suck

Imaginary freedom keeps the cattle calm
Space enough to turn 'round
And a fair amount of halm
Well soon it's time for slaughter
We're lining up the PIGS
The smallest are for starters, salut, bon app├ętit!

Keep...




4. SURVIVAL OF THE RICHEST

We had a place by the ocean
We lived by it's rules
And our housee seemed to hover
Over the tide
Until that Boxing Day morning
When all slates were wiped clean
And though the wave evanescent
The change permanent

And while we were looking for loved ones
They sealed off the beach
We were told we would not be safe there
And the barricade grew
As a provisional precaution
We were moved off the island
No return tickets given
We still gaze at our home from the town

They've cleared the rubble
And with it everything else
Strong foundations set for the five star hotels
No wave can compare
This compels us to die

It is survival of the richest
With enormous appetite
It steals, it robs, it takes, it snitches
Like there's no tomorrow
It is unnatural selection
The lucky and the dead
The fever spreads like an infection
A cancer on the earth

It won't ever be the same
To them this is just a game
But it will never be the same

They say this camp's temporary
But what will come next
They lay down pipes for our sewers
But didn't drill any wells
And the streets of Male's still flooded
And we are but drops
In an ocean of people
With nowhere to go

It is survival of the richest...

It won't ever be the same
A tsunami will rise again
It will never be the same
A tsunami will rise again




5. FALSE FLAG

They could be anywhere
You're nor safe even in your TV-chair
It could come through the air
Land or sea - the terror's everywhere

They could be anywhere
You're not safe, not even under there
It could come through the air
In your mail - the terror's everywhere

It could be anyone
Could be your neighbour, could be your only son
Don't hesitate to inform
Pick up the phone, the witch-hunt is on

Now plant the seeds of hate
A distorted mirrorworld
False flag deception - manufacturing consent
Let's point the finger
Trust the mistrust
Give the speech of
Peace and freedom
Peace and freedom
Peace and freedom - for all

Well we've come to the show
Burning towers crumble into dust
Acting like we don't know
When deep inside every thinking human must
Jetliners vaporize
Passports, bandanas and bodies still intact
No fighters patrol the skies
For two full hours - undeniable fact

Now reap the fields of hate
And send us off to war
False flag deception - manufacturing consent
It's neverending
Blood and money
Just keep spending
Peace and freedom
Peace and freedom
Peace and freedom - for all

[David Ray Griffin:]
"Virtually all of the concrete of these enormous
structures was pulverized into very fine dust.
Try this: get a piece of concrete and drop it,
a little over a thousand feet, and see if it pulverizes
into very fine dust.
It won't happen."

Inconceivable
Unbelievable

Can you smell the Reichtag fire in the air
The Mainila, the Mukden, the Gleiwitz of today
Serving casus belli - poisoned delicacy
Pearl Harbour, JFK, RFK
Admitting to Gulf of Tonkin and
Operation Northwoods
In another 40 years: 7/7 and Madrid
Through media playing mind games
All built on FEAR
False - Evenets - Appearing - Real
False - Evenets - Appearing - Real

[Barack Obama Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech excerpts:]
"Your majesties, your royal highnesses,
distinguished members of the
Norwegian Nobel committee.
We are at war.
War.
War, war, wars, wars, wars, wars and wars,
war, and armed conflict.
Battle in a distant land.
Wars, wars and nuclear war.
Holy war.
War in one form or another.
Just war.
We choose to wage war.
Just war, war, war.
Total wars.
Another world war.
The relationship between war and peace,
and our effort to replace one with the other.
The destructive power of war.
I understand why war is not popular,
but I also know this: the belief that peace is
desireable is rarely enough to achieve it.
We will not eradicate violent conflict in our lifetimes.
Ther will be times when nations, acting
individually or in concert, will find the use
of force not only necessary, but morally justified.
The waging of war.
The prospect of war.
The conduct of war.
So yes, the instruments of war do have a role to
play in preserving the peace.
War is sometimes necessary.
Let me make one final point about the use of force.
Yes there will be engagement,
yes there will be diplomacy, but there must be
consequences - when those things fail.
We choose to wage war.
Thank you very much."

Now sing the song of hate
Or forever hold your peace
False flag deception - manufacturing consent
With or against
There's no exceptions
No excuse
Just peace and freedom
Peace and freedom
Peace and freedom - for all

False - Events - Appearing - Real
False - Events - Appearing - Real




6. CHOSEN BY GOD

[Theodore Roosevelt 1912:]
Behind the ostenible goverment
sits enthroned an invisible government,
owing no allegiance and acknowledging
no responsibility to the people

[Leslie Stahl:]
We have heard that half a million
children have died
I mean that's more children
than died in Hiroshima
You know, is the price worth it?

[Madelaine Albright:]
I think this is a very hard choice,
but the price, we think the price is worth it

Chosen by God
And the world has to answer to us
We'll show who we are
If you can not believe it
We are chosen by God
You are with or against us
There is no in between

[George W. Bush:]
Our enemies are innovative
and resourceful - and so are we
They never stop thinking about new ways
to harm our country and our people
- and neither do we

[Frank Zappa:]
The biggest threat to America today is not
communism, it's moving America
toward a fascist theocracy.
And everything that's happened during the
Reagan administration is stearing
us right down that pipe.

[Nigel Farage:]
...you said: 'the people that were elected
last week'. They have not been elected.
That is the point that I'm making, and in the
case of Baroness Ashton: she has never been
elected to public office in her entire life.
She takes an enormously powerful job,
and the peoples of Europe, of Britain,
of everywhere else - do not have the power
to hold her to account and to remove her.
And that fundamentally is what is wrong with
this whole European Union, It's all about
bureaucracy versus democracy. Things have
gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Chosen by God
And the world has to answer to us
We'll show who we are
When you least will expect it
We are chosen by God
You are with or against us
There is no no

[The Georgia Guidestones:]
Recited and translated

Chosen by God
And the world has to answer to us
We'll show who we are
And you better believe it
We are chosen by God
You are with or against us
There is no alternative




7. ASYLUM

In your asylum
Guarded by fire
A castle of ice resides
Bordered by wire
In perfect silence
Hovering
The shape of your body
That I know you're in

I look into those eyes
See nothing but despise
In your eyes
As love turns to hate
Love turns to hate

In your asylum
Behind those walls
The night sky is endless
But there are no stars
They have all fallen
You've made your last wish
And you try not to think of the fact
That I still exist

And you pretend you cannot hear
This monologue my dear
As you hide
As love turns to hate
Love turns to hate

And everytime that I try
You turn your back, turn your back on me
And every way that I ride
The tangle and thorns awaiting me
A wall of roses
That exposes no entrance for me
You seem to be complete
Without me

In your asylum
Inside your shell
A pearl slowly forming
But noone can tell
If in the darkness
It sparkles and shines
And there's no way of knowing
If it's all lies

I can't explain but there's something
Unnatural in the way
That you cry
As love turns to hate
Love turns to hate




8. PLAY DEAD

Preemptive attack as a matter of fact
Let no one escape, leave nothing intact
Eye for the eye they might try to scratch
They won't stand a chance
There'll be no rematch

Just keep on going, drive over them
I saw a boy throw a stone, I think
Drive over them
Rip apart the walls
Blast away all running civilians
Then try to cover it up, but it can't be done

'Cause everything is painted in red
Yeah - starting to show
All the things you don't want us to know
Talking head
Yeah - shaking us so
As all we can do is play dead

Still, lie still
And try not to breathe

Scorched the earth, the scars run deep
An infected tattoo, an oasis of blood
Do you expect us to look the other way
When nothing is more obvious

And everything is painted in red
Yeah - starting to show
All the things you don't want us to know
Talking head
Yeah - shaking us so
As all we can do is play

[Baghdad 12/7/2007:]
... there, one o'clock.
Haven't seen anything since then.
Just fuckin', once you get on 'em just open up.
All right, firing.
Let me know when you've got them.
Let's shoot.
Light them all up.
Keep shootin'.
Keep shootin'.
Roger.
Got 'em.
Oh. sorry what was going on?
God damn it, Kyle.
All right, haha, I hit 'em.
Got a bunch of bodies layin' there.
Oh yeah, look at those dead bastards.
All right, we got about uh eight individuals.
There's one guy moving down there but he's uh,
he's wounded.
Come on buddy.
All you gotta do is pick up a weapon.
Come on, let us shoot!
Come on.
Clear.
Clear.
Nice.
Nice.
Good shootin'.
Thank you.

Silence - nothing but silence here
Tears fertilizing the sand
Still nothing is growing
Silence
And we sleep under stars with the roar
Still fresh in our memory
Remembering a time
When everything was fine

[Baghdad 12/7/2007:]
There was approximately four to five individuals
in the vehicle moving bodies.
Looks like a kid. Over.
I got a wounded girl, we need to take
her to Rustamiyah.
Could you tell the battalion that two civilian
children casualities are coming back to
Rustamiyah in the Bradley. Over.
I've got uh eleven Iraqi KIA's, one small child
wounded. Over.
Roger. Ah damn.
Well.
Oh well.
Well it's their fault for bringing their
kids to a battle.

Strike them hard, backstabbing allie
Weaken and starve them
With unreasonable sanctions
Then try to sell that with limited resources
They've developed new weapons
Of mass destruction

Trojan horse of Kuwait worked out well
Sent Glaspie to smile and Nayirah to cry
Do you expect us to look the other way
No nothing is more obvious

Yes everything is painted in red
Yeah - starting to show
All the things you don't want us to know
Talking head
Yeah - shaking us so
As all we can do is play dead

[Baghdad 12/7/2007:]
I think he just drove over a body.
Did he?
Yeah.
Maybe it was a visual illusion, but it looked like it.
Well they're dead, so.
We're shootin' some more.
Hey, you shoot, I'll talk.
Engaging with Hellfire.
You're clear.
All right firing.
We're not even going to watch this fuckin' shit?
Target it.
And firing.
There it goes, look at that bitch go!
Paloosh!
Roger. Building destroyed. Engaged with three
Hellfire missiles.
Nice missile.
Did it look good?
Sweet.




9. GO BACK TO SLEEP

Thought I was supposed to ask
When I could not understand
I didn't know some questions
Were frowned upon or banned
So when I first saw the shadow
I trembled and I shook
I grabbed your hand and pointed
But you didn't even look

My son you see shadows
Embarrasement and shame
But the sun makes the shadows
The trees are not to blame

I recall the sunshine
And the look in your eyes
As we reached for the sky
In another time

But at night in the dark
I just couldn't see
Couldn't see
And the pain and the fear
Came haunting me
Haunting me

There's something under my bed, oh
Don't tell me it's all in my head, no
I can't make it out in the darkness
But the contours look like a monster
Daddy why can't you stand upright
Mommy why do you just cry

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

So I never asked again
But I didn't understand
What was the point to have me
If they couldn't find the time
So I swallowed the shadow
And made it part of me
I thought that'd make them happy
But that was not to be

My son you're a shadow
Embarrasment and shame
Our son is in shadow
You're standing in the way

I recall the sunshine
And the look in your eyes
As we reached for the sky
In another time

But at night in the dark
I couldn't see
Just couldn't see
And the pain and the fear
Came haunting me
Haunting me

There's something under my bed, oh
Don't tell me it's all in my head, no
I can't make it out in the darkness
But the contours look like a monster
Daddy why do you stare through me
Mommy why do you just cry

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep




10. ANTIDOTE

The needle points at you and me
Shining in the light
But I can see a trace of blood
On the good doctor's hand
Epileptic seizure
For no apparent reason
Anaphylactic shock
You think they're gonna cover this one up

Stuffed up on the media altar
The beast still lokks alive
All hail the New World Order
All bow in fear and awe

And their eyes cannot see
And their ears do not hear
And they say it cannot be
Is there something wrong with me

The Galileos of today
Freak accidents and suicides
The scientific community
Is now hijacked and used for greed
Astra Zeneca, Glaxo Smith Kline
A simplified spelling needed
And it would read Frankenstein
Isn't that Witty

Take up the Rich Man's burden
The savage wars of peace
Now fill the mouth with venom
And bid the sickness cease

And their eyes cannot see
And their ears do not hear
And they say it cannot be
Is there something wrong

And even if those pulling the trigger
All but openly admit
Their anonymous committee advisors
All stand to profit

And even if you could turn some heads 'round
To see the smoking gun
Cannot do anything about it
It cannot be undone

Cannot drain the veins of our children
In hope the poison spout
Cannot slap the cheek of autism
And ask it to snap out

And their eyes cannot see
And their ears do not hear
And they say it cannot be
Is there something wrong with me
