lyrics

These pictures I paint, the images seen
Burn your eyes and mark your soul
The instinct to run and hide and seek
As you lose self control
Imposing my will, to gain further still, from you all
Trapped in a world of painful beauty
Shocked, offended and appalled

Trust what I tell you and get out alive
Swallow your reason, we don’t recognise
We’ll give you the world I feel you deserve
An empire of lies, the truth goes unheard

Trust what I tell you, you’ll get out alive
Consume all we feed you, consume to survive
And live in the world I feel you deserve
An empire of lies, and truth goes unheard

Sights and sounds and crimson words
We’ll chill you to the bone
Scandals of flesh that we infer
The truth remains unknown
Invading your homes, I’ll make them my own, justified
By the freedom of press, a game of chess, with kings that I decide

Trust what I tell you and get out alive
Swallow your reason, we don’t recognise
We’ll give you the world I feel you deserve
An empire of lies, the truth goes unheard

Trust what we tell you, you’ll get out alive
Consume all we feed you, consume to survive
And live in the world I feel you deserve
An empire of lies, and truth goes unheard

You need it. This fear machine, eternal fortress
Demand it. It breaks you down, the pain is endless
Devour it. Those who prey, remaining faceless
Accept it. Submit to fate, you’re cheap and helpless
