The Lifeless Grin Lyrics

7. The Lifeless Grin (4:19)
Dreary haze of sunrise
Greets another day
Endless cycle starts again
Same thing everyday

There's no deviation
Monotonous routine
Fake your way through days of toil
Fuel the greed machine

Serve those who enslave you and comply with their demands
Silencing all thoughts you must obey

(chorus)
Choose a face to wear, learn to wear it well
Pretend it's paradise
When you know it's really hell.

The lifeless grin - the mask has made you blind
The lifeless grin - hiding the lie

(verse #2)

Comfort in oppression
Submissive and abused
Tangled realms of exploitation
Respite refused

They have you where they want you
The human spirit numb
Feast the pigs, then leave the masses
Fighting for the crumbs

Affliction of misfortune a mental use of force
Poisoned minds wander in a daze

Never question
You don't need to know

Waiting watching
Time is moving slow

Dying a slow death
With the lifeless drones

Use and abuse you
Stares of mindless clones

Finding comfort
In this slavery

People claw their way
Through this misery

(verse #3)

The pointless existence
Now you're buried alive
Drift through time with no ambition
Submit to the grind

A hell of your own making
Harvesting the soul
Embrace the suffering and hardship
Serve those who control

Exterminate the spirit demoralizing pride
Burn away what little hope remains

(chorus)
Choose a face to wear, learn to wear it well
Pretend it's paradise
When you know it's really hell.

The lifeless grin - the mask has made you blind
A lifeless grin - hiding the lie
