Now, I don't know about you, but I don't think the primary purpose of your life, of my life and the entirety of the human race's is just to blindly consume to support a failing economy and a faulty system, forever and ever until we run out of every resource and have to resort to blowing each other up to ensure our own survival. I don't think we're supposed to sit by idle while we continue to use a long outdated system that produces war, poverty, collusion, corruption, ruins our environment and threatens every aspect of our health and does nothing but divide and segregate us. I don't think how much military equipment we are selling to other countries, how many hydrocarbons we're burning, how much money is being printed and exchanged, is a good measure of how healthy our society is but I do think I can speak for everyone when I say, we're sick of this shit.

Time to mobilize
Time to open eyes
We are not a quiet pocket of resistance
This is real, but we cannot afford to fail
Act with, act with persistence
This is real, but we cannot afford to fail
Army, establish order
Respect me and fear me
Fuck you
We have no respect
And when tomorrow comes
We're gonna stamp on your head (pig)

Woah, woah
Calm down, (calm down mate), calm the fuck down
Gandhi Mate, Remember Gandhi (Jesus, just remember)
Alright, Alright I'm fine

See if we keep them silent then,
They'll resort to violence and that's how we criminalize change

AWHHHH
,
Yabba Dabba Do One son, We don't want your rules
Who you fooling son, we've got all the tools
We need to build a whole new system
To correct these flaws
(You know what), I've already listed them

You're a communist
You're a fucking utopianist
Ah here come the emulsive labels
But they're attempted fails

Cos man, we so far out your comfort zone

We stop, think, begin to revive
We stop, think, begin to revive
We stop, we think, we begin to revive
We begin to revive

Put a call out to the frontline
Get the message out to the the contact squad
Transmit emergency frequencies
Put a call out to the frontline
Get the message out to the the contact squad
Put a call out, put a call out, put a call OUUUUUT

Oh and the jigsaw starts to build
Oh and the jigsaw starts to build

    A few corrections:
    "forever and ever until we run out of every resource and have to resort to.. " not "fall to the result to"

    "sit by idle" not "sit by either"

    "respect me and fear me" not "respect me and follow me"

    "yabbadabadoo one son"

    "get a message out to the contact squad" not "imminent attack for the contact squad"

    Good job catching "utopianist" though

    This is how the world is going down hard. I mean about all the taxes that go up for the poor and get deducted for the rich how is that fair?. Why should be fight over resources instead we should be working together to utilize what is left on this planet not waging wars for unexplained reasons how the government keeps us in the dark on hoe screwed we really are. We should stand up and be heard we are now weak!!!
