lyrics

Basement

Verse

They’re generating fear
And we’re losing ourselves
Snatched up by confusion
While their profits are made
It’s laid out in front of us
But we’re looking away
An illusion they’ve created
And we become more and more depraved

Pre Chorus

We know we’re the ones at fault
For the innocent people displaced
Realization does not give us pardon
For avoiding to see through these people’s eyes

Chorus
They say they protect us
By monitoring us all
Searching for one in a billion
Headlines revoked and redacted
Censorship conflates fear with inaction


Bridge
In 1988, the Reagan administration provided aid to terrorists in Angola, which led to 1.5 million deaths

In 1990, the Central American wars were culminated by the murder of six Jesuit priests by US-trained Salvadoran terrorists

The US government terrorized the people of Cuba for over 30 years in an attempt to bring about an uprising that would lead to a US invasion.


End Verse
Victims’ voices covered in darkness
Lust of power, not without consequence
Actor’s actions never absolved
Never tried, never convicted
When the world cannot police our leaders
We have to take responsibility
Time to establish the precedents
So the people are the final judge and jury


Chorus
Our democracy’s metastasized
Accountable for an unstable world
It’s time to be their recourse
No regrets and no remorse
