lyrics

We've got some kids now and we'd like to get older
Live with inclusion and no need for soldiers
As we evolve, one race for survival
Think with your brain, the triggers are primal
The greater good is too small of a picture
Everyone alive is your brother or sister
Erase those common threads with fear and hate
But we don't want that

Told things that keep us divided
Misled diatribes sparking a riot
Buck hard like we're caught in a bear trap
We could sink to the bottom but we don't want that
Bad books in a battle to control
And they've got the whole world in a chokehold
Old rules, now it's time for a new act
As we sink to the bottom but we don't want that

False truth we're sold: we're better than others
With not as much gold, but it's not hard to discover
That these lines were drawn by men that stand to lose
What they took from others, and it's more than they could ever use
One nation under corporate greed
Selling us things that we don't even need
Steady burn, steady burning the planet
They make gains now but they don't understand that

Told things that keep us divided
Misled diatribes sparking a riot
Buck hard like we're caught in a bear trap
We could sink to the bottom but we don't want that
Bad books in a battle to control
And they've got the whole world in a chokehold
Old rules, now it's time for a new act
As we sink to the bottom but we don't want that no

Here is a fresh perspective untainted by directives
Daily digging our own graves for bills to pay but we don't want that

Told things that keep us divided
Misled diatribes sparking a riot
Buck hard like we're caught in a bear trap
We could sink to the bottom but we don't want that
Bad books in a battle to control
And they've got the whole world in a chokehold
Old rules, now it's time for a new act
As we sink to the bottom but we don't want that

We gotta break break break the hold
We gotta take take take control
We gotta fight before we're sold
You know we all drown together but we don't want that
We don't want that
We don't want that, no
