"Demo" (2003 Demo)

1. Massacre of the Innocents
2. Culmine
3. Face of Capital
4. Culture of Cowardice

1. Massacre of the Innocents

Blood-red banners united over the fields
Where a thousand innocent victims grieve.
Desperate populations, divided and conquered
A million graves hidden, beneath the fallen leaves

Step forth from the shadows to this cursed place
Bankers and thieves hungry for power.
Blood soaked soil, where you were born
Since the bastards set foot: filth, stench and war.

Their leaders wait above the celebration
Sending their thoughts to the dispossessed.
Who’s ivory face is beyond communication
With a corpse laden smile they accept his caress.

As parasites and worms uphold a social peace
We ride past decay and destruction in the ditches.
Their sweet pretty flowers have corrupted the mass
While disease reeks from their rotting stitches.

Torn between servitude and eruption
A messenger arrives with a black nightingale.
Critical eyes trained on the palace of mirrors
Where cruel men construct our fairy tales.

The leaders smiling behind closed doors
Turning deaf ears to the outraged cries.
They’ve betrayed their cause, turned their backs
Their death carrion rule from western skies.

The bones of the massacre
Are forever on their dinner plates
The violence of a resistant culture
Will be the terror they create.

That iron cross around their necks
Will drag the social order to its fate.
Burning fires, winds of change
Will blast their halls and clean the slate.

Dog soldiers will fetch their scraps
Down the bloody road of imperialist crime.
In empty halls where memory is protected
Ghost voices whisper from ancient times.

At twelve midnight the sun is breaking
Broken chains and fallen walls.
What measures will be taken?
When the graves are exposed and justice calls.

Tranquility and splendor on wheels of fire
Will bring us reward when the false idols fall.
Cruel death will rise and their pale ghosts retreat
When the vultures they’ve roosted come home to call.

We don’t need your organization
We’ve moved your mountains and marked your cards
Now our hearts must have the courage
For the burning of the guards.

2. Culmine

A call to all those people who say we are free
Let your blinders fall a moment, tell me what do you see?
Is this really the way you want your world to be?
It’s no wonder your children stopped listening.

Nightsticks, plastic bullets,tear gas and locks
Behind every curtain: Molotov cocktails and rocks.
False-hearted judges dying in the webs that they spin
Only a matter of time before night comes stepping in.

Free enterprise and success, we know that's a lie
Your labor pays so little one can barely survive.
Hopeless eyes only stare, sealed lips make no sound
This society is a corpse rotting into the ground.

Nightsticks, plastic bullets,tear gas, and locks
Behind every curtain: molotov cocktails and rocks.
False-hearted judges dying in the webs that they spin
Only a matter of time before night comes stepping in.

We’ll refuse to be a part of a system we didn’t choose
For those of you in power the next move is up to you.
You’ve lost our trust, no allegiance nor vows
Without the support of the people your system falls to
the ground.

Your ill bred castle has begun to erode.
Constant class war causing systems to corrode.

Sure we are scared, Sure we may fall
But a lack of choices back us up against the wall.
Look into the fiery furnace not far beneath your feet
see your own children dying in the streets.

Its a shadowy world as the sun sets in the sky
Do we choose violent ignorance or penetrate their lies?
We can end their reign of blood if we openly criticize
If they refuse to listen they’ll pay the hard way for
their crimes.

Nightsticks, plastic bullets,tear gas, and locks
Behind every curtain: molotov cocktails and rocks.
False-hearted judges dying in the webs that they spin
Only a matter of time before night comes stepping in

3. Face of Capital

One fact concerning capitalism which could be held as true
It has sold the mass of people a deep belief in its values
Americans defend state policy, regardless of cost or of peril
A million lives, a million lies to preserve their false ideals

Capitalism for most Americans is synonymous with democracy
Yet the bitter fight for civil-rights is written in our history
Any freedom we might enjoy was fought against brutal opposition
The men who opposed liberty are those who built this system
The wealthy population protects and nurtures its own class
Refusing to react responsibly: a historical habit of this caste
Far from defending America’s few hard-won rights
They threaten democratic process and freedom’s still out of sight

If capitalism was all that its defenders claim it to be
We would expect to find a truthful, moral, and ethical society
Far from that it’s cursed, with a blood-soaked history
Europe took an unspoiled continent and ravished without mercy

Methodical and deliberate destruction of first nations
Is still the haunting price of American ‘Civilization’’
The first slaves from Africa arrived in 1619
150 years before America became an independent colony
500 thousand slaves for a 3 million population
Multi generational slavery is how our forefathers built the nation
Exploitation, crime, and violence: the fabric of our society
Creating distrust, hate, and fear with a warped sense of morality

America spends billions forcing economic stations worldwide
Yet refuses to pay attention to the problems on their side
Vast sums of money channeled into a destructive war machine
Destroying lives in other countries: the mark of boundless greed

When material advantage lies at the heart of our philosophy
How can we expect anything different from what we see?
America holds 7 percent of the world’s population
America consumes 40 percent of the world’s production

No country has medical costs as high as those in the USA
No public health insurance in the richest country of the day
Why invest in slum clearing and decent housing for the poor
Accumulating wealth through exploitation can get the rich so much more
A fight against this system is no longer a choice we have to make
It’s us against them with the world’s future at stake.
A growing concern for our position in a future yet to be
Is the hope for radical change towards direct democracy.

4. Culture of Cowardice

A culture of cowardice
Our ugliness unveiled
Portrayed as a savior
Whitewashing our crimes

We are the heroes
Crowned in our halos
Policing the world
Passing our judgment

Our so-called enemies
Are the victims of siege
Bathed in our infamy
A dark imposing spectrum

This war turned system
A means to monetary gain
Taking control of countries
Leaving famine and waste

Canadian and American society has long used the corporate media to propagate its own self-righteousness. From
emphasizing the divide between social classes to manufacturing scapegoats for political and economic gain. Psychological
conditioning over a long period of time has led to two economically separated, yet ultimately conservative, sections of
society. The first section: a small percentage of wealthy individuals who run the private sector and maintain influence over
local politicians. This class pushes to undermine and control weakened third world countries through proxy regimes and
hit squads which support their capitalist structures; fashioning governments into corporate assets while openly neglecting
the everyday needs of the people. At the same time they’ll shamelessly blame the poor and underprivileged whenever any of
their so-called ‘economic crises’ arise. The second strata is comprised of the middle and lower classes who are often
manipulated into believing that our problems stem from loose immigration laws, foreign countries, and liberal political views.
Confused, scared, tired and frustrated they often label any criticism as ‘terrorist’ in accordance with the Bush
administration’s openly racist agenda. This sociopolitical/pathological climate is leading to our downfall, creating an egotistical
and cowardly culture which believes itself righteous and therefore free to brutally coerce the rest of the world. Global cop, global

A million dead
Without a trace
Genocide and destruction
Hidden from our face
Any depiction of real war
Not ‘appropriate’ for broadcast
If CNN showed the real story
Support for war would never last

Delivered propaganda
We are mislead to believe
In a brutal foreign policy
Which supports corporate greed

Molded and sedated
Trapped in a web of lies
Living under a blanket of fear
They play with our minds.
Answering the prayers of the rich
The world trade center fell

Initiating invasions and repression
The rich will bury us all

Increased state suppression
TV influence, false connections
We’re not allowed to criticize
As we bomb countries into recession

False leads and hidden agendas
To support corrupt institutions
Uncovering the truth is the key
To any possible solutions.
