Bleed us bleed us
For their capital
Lead us lead us
To the burial

Bleed us bleed us
For their capital
Lead us lead us
To the burial

Yeah!
Yeah!

Step aside and watch the lions roar
As they rule, with an iron fist and boundless force
Like a plague, their epidemic spreads across the floor
Just let me introduce you to who's behind that door

A smiling face, with style and grace, they'll show you to the fire

Bleed us bleed us
For their capital
Lead us lead us
To the burial

They build their, reign of wealth through manufactured wars
As they ship, all our factories off the foreign shores
Just to keep, pockets full and leave the people poor
This is the kind of system that we've been slaving for

Eventually, like sheep we'll be, led blindly to the slaughter

Bleed us bleed us
For their capital
Lead us lead us
To the burial

Headstone bleeds admiration
A backhanded eulogy
In the face of devastation
Gladly they'll sing our praise
For a life of slaving and digging our own graves
Now just let the usher show you to your final resting place
Yeah what a disgrace, we are

Learn to breathe, and you will see, your life is what you make it

Bleed us bleed us
For their capital
Lead us lead us
To the burial

Bleed us bleed us
For their capital
Lead us lead us
To the burial

Ooh
