how to enslave (a nation)

simplicity sells
one lie at a time

in lies we trust
in God we lie
in lies we must
never question why

so paint your pictures
and taint them well
for the generations of the blind
to inherit them all

this is how to
enslave a nation
this is you
on your knees
this is a call for
revolution
this is we
fighting the disease

in lies we trust
in God we deny
in lies we lust
never answer why

so protect your futures
behind titanium walls
for the generations of failures
who inherit your fall

this is how to
enrage a nation
this is you
pleading for release
this is a call for
evolution
this is we
becoming the disease

in lies we trust
in God we die
in lies we cross
bound by the lie

so swallow their poisons
drink stink and smile
for the generations of the sullen
walking lock step single file

this is how to
evolve a nation
this is you
rising to your feet
this is a cry for
vindication
this is we
enslaving the disease

one lie at a time
selling simplicity
