Standing for something with
True strenght and heart
But the old manifesto has splintered apart
Driven from homes to the depths of despair
Hear the cries of the innocent
Ring through the air

Genocide a new class warfare
Pushed aside to make all the people one
Drop dead because freedom's a cancer
And state-sponsored terror's
The new land reform

Blinded by pride and national impulse
Weaned on the doctrines of Lenin and Marx
A blood red scar on the new face of China
Exploding like tinder too close to the spark

This time it's genocide
And the terror comes from within
Nobody's safe from the latest wave
As the new republic's in
We'll do away with agrarian notions
Bleed the population into fear
You can't stop our populist expansion
Because you've got no freedoms here
