lyrics

Everything that has a beginning has an end

They seek power for the sake of power itself
No interest in the good of the people
Unlike the evil of old, they are aware of their intentions
Power is not the means, it is the end

I know you’re out there, hiding in the shadows
I can feel you watching, I know that you’re afraid
You fear us, you fear change
Know that your tyranny has numbered fucking days

Waging war in the name of peace
Imprisoned, slavery is freedom from fear
Preaching ignorance as strength

Their rule was never seized as a temporary means
To forge a better world and relinquish it back to the people
We are led like lambs to the slaughter
Power is not the means, it is the end

I can’t see the future
I don’t know how this will end
But its clear how it will begin

I’m going to show these people what you didn’t want them to see
A world without rules, a world set free
Expose the lies to humanity

I know you’re out there, hiding in the shadows
I can feel you watching, I know that you’re afraid
You fear us, you fear change
Know that your tyranny has numbered fucking days

This revolt is more than flesh and blood
It is an idea that can not be fucking killed
When will you understand?

There is only light and dark and the dark must be swept away
Even against the end of the world I will not compromise my beliefs
