lyrics

A brutal conflict set in motion
Where only dreams survive
You live your days in caution
So greed and filth can thrive
Your neighbours are now strangers
In a place ridden with greed
Cos all this world wants from you
Is to watch you fucking bleed


The catalyst is close to home
Is it really hard to see
That those who build our shackles
Are the same who say "we're free"
And those who will speak freely
So often wind up dead
Open your eyes and see the
Guns pointed at your head
The truth is on the wall
Yes this they can't deny
"Act now!" The people call
Yet still the systems thrives
And soon we'll all have freedom
As they begin to see
That you can't hold the reigns of a country that believes they're free

Cos we're all living a lie
And nobody knows
What we see with our eyes
Is just a ghost we know

Mortars, borders
Sons and daughters
Fall as chaos reigns towards us
But we all know the borders
Just exist to trick and fool us
Races face this constant hatred
Without borders race is wasted
Only with race erased
Can a world of peace sit in its place

Cos we're all living a lie
And nobody knows
What we see with our eyes
Is just a ghost we

Know that this ain't gonna be easy
To walk a righteous path
But if you want to live freely
We must not repeat the past
They'll say we're fucking crazy
And stop us
Yeah they'll try
But I don't let that shit phase me
Cos we'll never fucking die
The prisons over flowing
The wardens start to run
Cos they can't face us knowing
The new age has begun
And soon we'll all live freely
And no more hate be spread
Open your eyes and see the
Guns pointed at your head

Cos we're all living a lie
And nobody knows
What we see with our eyes
Is just a ghost we know
