Suicide Machines – The Air We Breathe lyrics

Why do you choose - To walk through life so blind
Frozen Hearts - And empty minds
Its everywhere - But we still don't see
And I blame you - And you blame me
And everyday - I slowly lose my mind
And every time - I come up empty
Something else inside me - Starts to die
And I'm left - Alone and angry

It's in the air - That we breathe each day
It's what we call - the American Way
It's in the way - That we treat each other
We segregate - And we fight our brothers

Why are we raised - To pledge allegiance
To a flag - That rapes and bleeds us
And we're all free - Or so we're told
A country with a corrupted soul
And evryday - We chase that dream
With empty eyes - And painted smiles
And everyday - We wait to die
Still no one cares - And I'm just as guilty

It's in the air - That we breathe each day
It's what we call - the American Way
It's in the way - That we treat each other
We segregate - And we fight our brothers

I only see - What they let me see
I only do - What they tell me to

No! - Yeah!
Don't see - Don't speak - Don't feel - Don't think

Compassion is a myth
The sad truth - Is ignorance is bliss
Cut from a heartless mold
Stand up - Let the truth be told

It's in the air - That we breathe each day
It's what we call - the American Way
It's in the way - That we treat each other
We segregate - And we fight our brothers
