Defiance – Success Unatainable lyrics

People made to feel guilty for the inequality
Of a systme they played no part in creating
Made to blame themselves for the shortcomings
Of a society that makes it's description of success unattainable

Create a society where human misery
And poverty are repugnant to that society
Not an indication of a lack of initiative
Create a scoiety based on people not enterprise

The future this society offers is none
The society that offers non deserves none
Every institution used to oppress or pacify
Must be completely destroyed

Burn the welfare offices, prisons, trade unions
There is nothing sacred about these institutions
They all play a part in maintaining the prison
That some call america
