Human Responsibility

With the subtlety of a neurotoxin

Paralyzing, eating through the brain

Infected tissues fall away

We decay

Decisively but without options

We dig our trenches, massive open graves

Domestic issues fade away

Ignore the pain

And there's nothing we can do

That's what their great big machines keep on feeding you

They'll keep domesticating the truth

Until the lie looks more appealing

No convenience has ever been more revealing

And if we don't stop them we're all screwed

Because this is a war on the poor

Just like every one before

We're all aware of what's in store

And neither we nor the world are prepared to take any more

This has got to be the last time we

Let people die over their god or country

There's nothing left of all that we once believed

And now my conscience is just slowly killing me

And I know that I'm not the only one

Who doesn't want to be on either end of that loaded gun

I respect the right to choose not to defend

In fact I'd rather run

But I think it's plain to see from current events

There's no longer an option

We've got to do something now

Because this is a war on the poor

Just like every one before

We're all aware of what's in store

And neither we nor the world are prepared to take any more

From necessity comes a world in a topspin

Nothing left but there's hope yet amidst the dismay

Reconstructions under way

This starts today

With them out of our way
