Riot 99 – Cancer In Society lyrics
Another schoolyard shooting,
And again they blame the films,
No sooner is he put away,
Than his shoes are filled,
And the lawmakers say they won't tolerate,
Such bloody expressions of hate,
No they'll guide the youth,
And implore them to think straight.
But what do they expect?
In a culture that breeds dissent...
There's a cancer in society,
A cancer in my head,
A cancer in society,
And like a cancer, it will spread.
From the corridors of power,
To the towers of high finance,
The dollar is the life-blood,
That keeps the State alive,
And when the 3rd world crumbles,
Under the burden of capitalist debt,
The world just changes the channel,
And just as quickly forgets.
