Against All Authority – All Fall Down lyrics

"It's all hopelessness, but we add hope
In a sea of, of hopelessness."
The air stings my eyes
The water burns my skin

I've seen the reactions through my actions
But I don't try to change a thing at all
We're taught to close our eyes
And conditioned to believe their lies

As we watch them rape the land and skies
To build the things that own our lives
And we'll never stop
Were driven by greed

We'll never stop
We take more than we need
And we'll never stop
Our society

And they'll never stop
The politicians with their lies
The corporations won't compromise
Still we refuse to change our lives

And we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down
All fall down

All fall down
And we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down

All fall down
We do what is convenient for
Ourselves without regard for our surroundings
Or each other and take what we want

And discard
The rest never looking back at the damage
That we've done
Always moving forward

Closer to oblivion
And we all fall down
All fall down
