Hid behind those eyes
There is something you should know [x2]

Change cannot be subject to conditional falls
'Cos we're squatting in a system
That consistantly stalls
Don't be fooled into thinking
That a small group of friends
Cannot change the world

That's the only thing that ever has
The only thing that ever has
Stand Up
Stand Up [x2]
Hid behind those eyes
There is something you should know

Behind Those Eyes
We Reach Through Their Callous Disguise
Into Fortresses Where they fabricate
Whitewash and Lies
We're all Fooled into living
With a small pack of thieves
That distort the world

That's what this antique structure Creates
What this antique structure Creates
Stand up
Stand up [x2]
Hid behind those eyes
There is something you should know

We are all Connected
We are all Collected here
Now change the world
YAH!

We blast behind those eyes
Slash through to the cortex
Gut wrenching business
Caught off guard
Not psyched for the vortex
This can't be Real!

Hid behind those eyes
There is something you should know (x2)

Don't be fooled into thinking
That a small group of friends
Cannot change the world!

    How society is all ruled by a few of the richest men in the world and how we are lied to and manipulated. How we all think we cant do anything about it, but actually if we get together, we can? I dont really know lol

    Basic meaning to me is that we put too much faith in a government that 'consistantly stalls " and fails us. That government is slowly but surely coming to an end.

    The lyrics: "don't be fooled into thinking
    that a small group can not change the world. That's the only thing that ever has" is a reference to margaret mead who said "never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. "

    I believe the line: "that's the only thing they'll ever have" is actually: "thats the only thing that ever has. "
