lyrics

victims only need apply
fear question wonder why
looking backwards deep inside
memoirs of a genocide
candle burning power low
no rehearsals before the show
luck is gone youth pissed away
forgotten dreams of yesterday

since the earth has been destroyed
the loss of life for girls and boys
the mascot has been betrayed
better plans have not been made
a suitable solution for greedy needs
kill the flock to satisfy the beast
retributions must be made
the rich must get paid 

dose the good of the many out way the good of the few
(your gasping for air)
does the good of me out way the good of  you
do you know who you are, do you like what you see
(your gasping for air)
do you have any idea what you use to be
listen up dummy can you hear the noise
(your gasping for air)
listen up dummy it’s not too late
all your mistakes and sins you own 
(your gasping for air)
your gonna reap just what you’ve sown

joy and hope have been erased
only the smell remains
gifts wasted on empty souls
the parts do not fill the whole
final thoughts they kiss goodbye
strap them down, watch them fry
eternity has lost her way
humans still searching for the grays 
origami of the mind
relative in clockwork time
Xerox thoughts and broken dreams
leaching off of better things

dose the good of the many out way the good of the few
(your gasping for air)
does the good of me out way the good of  you
do you know who you are, do you like what you see
(your gasping for air)
do you have any idea what you use to be
listen up dummy can you hear the noise
(your gasping for air)
listen up dummy it’s not too late
all your mistakes and sins you own 
(your gasping for air)
your gonna reap just what you’ve sown

we are the exhibit in your factory                           
we are the life you lead of gluttony
we are the malnourished for beauty sake            
there’s never been so much at stake
 
i make no apologies
i swore i’d never tell
now i’m back at the beginning
and it’s just as well
i remember when and i remember why
i wanna pass this on before i die
listen up dummy can you hear the noise
listen up dummy it’s not too late
all your mistakes and sins you own
your gonna reap just what you’ve sown
 
dose the good of the many out way the good of the few
(your gasping for air)
does the good of me out way the good of  you
do you know who you are, do you like what you see
(your gasping for air)
do you have any idea what you use to be
listen up dummy can you hear the noise
(your gasping for air)
listen up dummy it’s not too late
all your mistakes and sins you own 
(your gasping for air)
your gonna reap just what you’ve sown
