Empty hearts and empty souls
With empty promises and empty goals
Leading the nation to devastation
With endless greed

And what we want is what we take
A world to bleed and a world to break
It's all part of the scheme
When the American dream had become a nightmare

[Chorus:]
This is what you get when you want everything
We are the authority
Can't steal enough of everything
We're here to rape the system
Corrupt and born of greed

Soon to enslave from birth to the grave
Soon to control mind body and soul
Corruption complete with your defeat
This virus will grow

What you see is what you get
Growing fear and growing regret
For what has become and the damage what done
We mold your reality

[Chorus:]
