The state of the nation, violation
A broken promise is as good as a lie
The hell is humongous, the devil's among us
And we will burn because we won't unite

We won't witness anymore freedom
What does anybody do we need 'em?
I would rather fight than let another die
We're the problem but we're also the solution

All hope is gone

If you want you cannot take it from me
If you think you can you still don't know me
Let me tell you, when I said it I meant it
And I will always have the right to defend it

Fifty seconds, a hundred murders
The bill of rights is a bill of sale
What will you do when the war is over?
What will you do when your system fails?

We have made the present, obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way when all hope is gone
We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, sink your disease
We'll end the world when all hope is gone

We have made the present, obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way when all hope is gone
We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, sink your disease
We'll end the world when all hope is gone

The wretched are the wounded
The hungry starved to death
At a place where no-one goes
The air itself is a final breathe

So discontinue
The antiseptic cash charade
As the cry of justice comes
I'm gonna let this fire free

I am the reason your future suffers
I am the hatred you won't embrace
I am the worm of a pure distinction
I am the remedy, spit in my face

All your lies and wars are out-dated
All your subjects are dulling mind games
I can let all of another million reasons why
But doesn't matter when the only thing will never die

We have made the present, obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way when all hope is gone
We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, sink your disease
We'll end the world when all hope is gone

We have made the present, obsolete
What do you want? What do you need?
We'll find a way, we'll find a way when all hope is gone
We've seen the fall of the elite
Bury your life, sink your disease
We'll end the world, we'll end the world when all hope is gone

When all hope is gone
When all hope is gone

    The song, music and theme speak for itself. It's a song about the world at stake: all the situations at hand, be it personal or worldly, and trying to turn things into a positive. Sometimes you have to face the grotesque to bring about something amazing.
