Confrontation

Don't... be... silent.
FIGHT!
(violence, melees, and disturbance of the peace)

~verse 1~
Here's your introduction to destruction
And the hate sustaining me
Are we safer or in danger?
Drowning in atrocities?
Riot gear, the slaves are here
Piling corpses high
Its the rich man's war
But it's the poor that fight
More capitalist crimes
More enemies than allies
No WMD's - who gives a fuck if they die
Just kill 'em all - watch 'em fall
Skin the world with their lies
Its the rich man's war
But it's the poor that fight

~chorus~
Stand up
Speak out
Strike back!
Stand up
Speak out
Strike back!
They don't know what they started
CONFRONTATION

~verse 2~
My religion of resistance
Challenging everything
Radicals and dissidents
Of creativity
We are the children
Of the siege you hide
In this rich man's war
Where the poor just die
More deception and greed
More wars and disease
More lies from the hive mind
That seek to deceive
A weak nation of need
Like silent thieves in the night
Its a rich man's war
But it's the poor that die

~chorus~
Stand up
Speak out
Strike back!
Stand up
Speak out
Strike back!
They don't know what they started
CONFRONTATION.
Stand-FIGHT
Speak-FIGHT
Strike back!
Stand-FIGHT
Speak-FIGHT
Strike back!
They don't know what they started
CONFRONTATION

~bridge~
This is my battle cry
Defy the lies of the tyrant race
With a fist in the air
And a finger in their face!
DEFY THE TYRANTS!
DON'T BE SILENT!
DEFY THE TYRANTS!
DON'T BE SILENT!
DEFY THE TYRANTS!
DON'T BE SILENT!
DEFY THE TYRANTS!
DON'T BE SILENT!

~chorus~
Stand up
Speak out
Strike back!
Stand up
Speak out
Strike back!
They don't know what they started
CONFRONTATION
Stand-FIGHT
Speak-FIGHT
Strike back!
Stand-FIGHT
Speak-FIGHT
Strike back!
They don't know what they started
CONFRONTATION

~outtro~
There's no
Way they can
Stop us
Now
There's no
Way they can
Stop us
Now
There's no
Way they can
Stop us
So let them try
We fight or we die.
