from by Polaris



Hold your tongue and close your eyes,
There’s nothing here to see but sacrifice
Swallow the pill to ease your mind
Just bloodsuckers with an axe to grind

But we won’t be silenced, when there is so much at stake
You’ve lost all trace of humanity
You’re all condoning the violence, closed mouths speak in volumes the same
You’ve lost all trace of humility
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, it’s got to end

These walls they fucking talk to me, the bars they scream a prayer
How can you even sleep at night, how can you say you care?

Separation, you’ve cut the conversation,
But it whispers on the wind
Can’t deny it, there’s so much said in silence
Complicit and contained, you’ve lost your way

You stitched the lips of an honest man,
With no attempt to understand
You’re not so different

When we can’t trust our protectors,
These hypocrites and social hypochondriacs,
Who will guide us home?

Now the poison’s in the water
The serum’s in the very air we breathe

Can you feel it in the air? Can you taste it on the wind?
The war you think you’re fighting is still yet to begin
But if you looked into their eyes, then maybe you would see
The dis-illusion of a land of prosperity

You stitched the lips of an honest man
