lyrics

They're closing down the border, closing up their minds
Locking all the doors and shutting all the blinds
And we sit there, forgive us all we just sit there
While they reshape the laws and rename the gods
Redefine the words and set loose the dogs
We won't take it
But we don't know how not to take it

Their laws are made of paper
And people eat their shame
We bleed the blood of martyrs
To feed their need to blame

Goodbye to union, goodbye to jobs
Maybe we're better off, we were always just cogs
They use us
They use us in exchange for our silence
Escape to an island, escape to a screen
We don't believe in nothing, it's all just a dream
Compliance
We have it all and yet we have nothing

We bleed the blood of martyrs
To feed their need to blame
Their laws are made of paper
And people eat their shame

There's a hot wind blowing, do ya think it'll snow?
Just for once I wish you'd tell me something worthwhile to know
This country is a petty waste of illusion

While they reshape the laws and rename the gods
Redefine the words and set loose the dogs
They use us
They use us in exchange for our silence
