This human incompetence and it's consequence,
Sub-human intolerance hitting home. This stupid, old
Prejudice and it's consequence; civilian rights are
Not right for ALL deserve rights, large and
Small.

Rise and Fall... each breath could be
The last-chances have all come and passed.

Why can't we just shake the urge to end
Everything? Property lines slise through the
Earth. The sadden urge to control our surroundings;
Money and time now define the WORTHless we rise and we fall.

Rise and Fall... each breath could be
The last-chances have all come and passed.

Fighting for land to own... and man will
Always find reasons for war. Fighting wars yields
Bitter rewards so let's contemplate what to fight
For.

From the oceans we rise... to the ashes
We fall. All for one... not one for all.

Where do we go when we no longer
Exist? Apologies are useless, they're nothing,
They're important. To savour the taste of youth
And sweet control... Hierarchal classes
Split the masses - pray your ranking's high.

Off - white, low - life, nuisance in a flawless
Life, ground underfoot like ashes. The world's
A fucking gas chamber.

Populations rise and fall
