I think humanity is holding us down
This grandiose concept that we, we are more
An unintelligibly recognized sound
What have we done? 
What do we have to show for
This unconscious crowd
Of filthy, unorganized, soulless machines
That we call human

Maybe in another life and song
We'll live the dream and we'll dream of utopia
We'll live in peace and we'll know when we are wrong
We'll leave the seas and the trees and get along
If we look outside right now
As we gaze into the great beyond
Maybe there's a better world
A hope of peace in a magical photon
A world corrective and inhuman
That's better than what we're doing now
(Let's work on what we've got now)

Wreck a home just to make our own bigger
Plow over trees just to get from A to Z

Dying souls, diamond blood, lions out in Zion hunt
Crooked cops, stolen glocks, picket signs are rising up
Art of war for a carnivore, feeding off the primest cut
While clocks tick, we are all sick, killing time till time is up

Comforting is what we're used to
Gagged with a white flag, knife to the left wrist
Chains on the right leg, peace comes with a price tag
Got an iPhone in an iBag, while bullets fly out in Iraq
A crucifix sits on my lap, but there ain't no god where I'm at

Hold on, we're all doomed here on (From) the outside
We have to, we have to
Run away, don't look back now, from our humanity
We have to, we have to learn

My friends...
The others on Earth have become Abel
And we are Cain
This planet continues to crumble under our inane
There's good in the humans? Sure!
But it's not enough to balance the pain
The animals live for life and we live in strife over no particular domain
Who are really the animals now?

Despite all the rage, yeah
We're just rats in a cage, yeah
Humanity's dead, sanity lives in canopy graves, yeah
Amityville's now Latter Day Saints, yeah
Priest is the beast, bible's a gun, pulled on a nun while insanity sprays
Shots at the Mandalay (Mandalay), pepper spray out in Ferguson (Ferguson)
Fire starters and riot marchers (Riot marchers), the cops are the murderers
(Murderers)
Waving government issued pistols while missiles and bombs drop
(Government issued pistols) (Blowin' shit up!)
Sheep being led to the onslaught
(We are really the animals now)

Run the world? Yeah we'll run it
And ourselves into the ground
On (From) the outside
We have to, we have to
Learn a way to protect us
And not just ourselves
We have to, or we will burn
It's time we all look at ourselves
Time to take this pill
Pretend it's alive - Feed that thrill, to kill
And swallow it whole
We are complacency, the destructor's whore
Complicit, we are feigning something resembling a soul
A cancer slaying it's host by consuming it's coal

This is what the humans have done
(Dying souls, diamond blood)
(Feeding off the primest cut)
Assume we are all responsible
(We're all sick, we're all sick)
Ruin the world
(Time is up)
Yeah, we're nothing but pests consuming everything
(Our clocks tick, we're all sick)
We are, but
(Time is up)
We have to
(Dying souls)
We can beat
(Time is up)
