They've got you movin' to the city
Oh my, you think you're lookin' pretty
But they've got their pistols too
Tucked down beneath their shoe
It's a new sensation
World annihilation
Moving to the music
Patiently it's waitin'
The city's screamin'
I can hear them breathin'
Cryin' out for wisdom
Hungry minds are feedin'

I know that you're tired of this
Cause you're a robot
They designed your life
But true souls said you know what's right
And you can join us on the other side

Are you scared? Are you scared? Are you scared?

They've got you marching to a drum beat
Oh my you got another nose bleed
They'll keep you so amused
You'll never taste the truth
It's a new creation
Total domination
Chains across your shoulders
Social captivation
Kill our leaders
Persecute our teachers
Criticize our culture
Crucify free thinkers

I know that you're tired of this
Cause you're a robot
They designed your life
But true souls said you know what's right
And you can join us on the other side

Are you scared? Are you scared? Are you scared?

Fill our eyes with money
Vanity that's cunnin'
Only on the surface
Diamonds look so stunnin'
Mass deception
Altered our perception
Sold it to the children
Made a new connection

I know that you're tired of this
Cause you're a robot
They designed your life
But true souls said you know what's right
And you can join us on the other side

    Probably the deepest song on the whole album. You shouldn't be scared if you realize the world is for our taking

    Its about people who don't want to believe that the world is run by evil, an fluid by hatred. For those people, come join us on the other side.

    Matt doesnt like the new generation of hand held objective electronics that allow people to depend on there communication device rather than other people with emotions and feelings. Theres a point where their communication leads up to a interaction between youself and another but if you keep on leading up to nothing your too late.

    Everyone is just a robot to society and the government. We are designed by everyone around us, rather then thinking freely.

    They=nwo, illuminat,i the evil powers that be and as a people we are blind to the prison we live in every day. The best slaves are ones who think they are free. But people are waking up because following them makes you soul sick and always leaves you wanting more. There is a better way to live and even if they realize most are to scared to do anything about it thank you cte from the bottom of my heart for making this song. But true souls said you know what's right and you can join us on the other side! Are you scared? And now cue up the song judas on the same album
