Napalm Death – Awake (To A Life Of Misery) lyrics

"We aren't their cattle.
We're not being bred for slavery... "
Thought trained to succeed.
From here on the pain begins.
We're maggots cast in a sea of struggle, bait for the big fish.
Crawl, forever crawling.
Faith holds no answers.
Ravenous - they greedily suck away your will to even argue.
A belief in something better.
Downtrodden, hopes still linger. Faces bear the same shallow fear of
Forgotten prosperity.
Powers change.
The promise of reward. Declarations false and unjust.
Tame insecurity.
A dreamlike notion that life passes by.
Cushioning the blow of impending reality,
Aimlessness is flogging us - awake!!
