inheritance we grew up in the age of reagan hot wars contras iran i know our history’s shown its violence i know this world seems unchanged the world that we inherit reflects only what we cling to songs without hope rebellions against nothing each generation must out of obscurity discover its mission fulfill or betray to turn yr back now is to be judged another day

insecurity as an anthem it’s time to reassess it’s time to ask what do we believe in what do we believe what do we choose philosophies ideas religions thoughts passions aggressions rights and wrongs rights and wrongs when it comes down to it what do we believe in change no change new political theory what’s one without the other what do we choose philosophies ideas religions thoughts passions aggressions rights and wrongs right and wrongs i don’t know what i believe too extreme on the left is the same as too extreme on the right it becomes faith it becomes religion what do we choose philosophies ideas religions thoughts passions aggressions rights and wrongs rights and wrongs

horatio alger against rugged individualism crush that myth forever depose dicators model citizens persons of moral character yr agenda ends here pull yrself up by yr bootstraps if one can then any of us can but not all against robber barons capitalist pioneers corporate thieves the american dream voice for the people not money collaborators apologists perpetrators the backbone of our moral character yr agenda ends here pull yrself up by yr bootstraps if one can then any of us can but not all

shining path i declare war on you you don’t think the way i think you don’t feel the way i feel you do things so goddamn weird you do things so goddman weird i declare war on you praise be to the culture warriors golden warriors on a shining path we commend yr blind allegiance to yr leaders that would have you as slaves i declare war on you yr rights to yr body are void yr decadent ways are a crime you don’t believe in my god our way is truth you are damned i declare war on you praise be to the culture warriors golden warriors on a shining path we commend yr blind allegiance to yr leaders that would own you as slaves they’ve coopted what you believe they won’t give you what you need they just want you for their red states they will downsize they will outsource they will squeeze the life from you

la duda una democracía falsa contra los demas del mundo contra la humanidad un gobierno lleno con mentirosos lleno con la malicia borrachos con el poder no creo en los estados unidos una democracía que rapta que tortura que asesina que deseperace que auspicia al terrorismo solo para mantener el poder no es diferente que las dictaduras que los tiranos no creo en los estados unidos

el derrotismo el derrotismo cada día el trabajo es así si no te gusta dejalo el fatalismo es su companía si no me gusta puedo dejarlo la mitología de los mercados libres de los derechos de los obreros que venza al fatalismo porque deberiamos aceptar lo que nos dan cambia su mente cambia la situación

optimism i make the case for youthful optimism i make the case for eternal hope action act reaction the thing won’t change without my hands the thing won’t fall without your hands action act reaction

el poder las palabras fracasan no podemos expresar la frustración ni la rabia ni el rencor que tenemos tus hijo de putas guerras tus hijo de putas razones tus hijo de putas proyectos para siglos nuevos el poder no ceda nada sin exigencias la globalización que quieres los mercados abiertos que deseas el pueblo que quieres dominar los esclavos que quieres tener tus hijo de puta elite desconectado construyendo monstruos destruyendo nostotros el poder no ceda nada sin exigencias

a million miles wake up fall back asleep then wake up i don’t wanna be awake yet thinking of you a million miles away rain on my window do you even like me thinking of you a million miles away smiling when I think of you smiling thinking of me thinking of you a million miles away maybe it’s possible the rain on the window thinking of you a million miles away rain on my window do you even like me thinking of you a million miles away smiling when i think of you smiling thinking of me thinking of you a million miles away

the means born into apathy culture of complacency born into apathy culture of complacency we will find a way to we are the weapons to we are the means to we are the means to the years pass by the years pass by so much anger so much grief so much anger so much grief we forget how to feel that’s just how life is we forget how to feel that’s just how life is we will find a way to we are the weapons to we are the means to we are the means to  

the days are like this power vacuum absence of words the world turns old replaces old power struggle new ideas ignored days become years lifetimes of no change those who want power are in power will have power power words what to believe in when nothing seems to work propaganda and failure empty words start fires and anarchy real progress through knowledge power through selfless acts those who want power are in power will have power

te vas a caer cuando me dices que no podemos hacerlo no te creo no te creo cuando me dices que no crees en nada no te creo no te creo cuando me dices que no hay ninguna esperanza no te creo no te creo cuando me dices que el estado va a ganar no te creo no te creo no te creo nada cuando estallamos te vas a caer las palabras ya son armas te vas a caer te vas a caer

the rise and fall of… subtlety is not one of yr strongsuits filmy lies stretched too thin only habits of the past are on yr side yr passion is what’s killing me unholy unhealthy appetite yr lust will consume everything in sight open up yr arms open up yr hearts open up yr markets open up yr minds inward the course of empire all roads lead to rome one nation under god all good things must pass law of historical repetition chained to the weight of the past law of historical repetition we know how this will end
