Beyond the Point of No Return Lyrics

7. Beyond the Point of No Return (3:32)
Hide
Turn away your eyes
No regard for the suffering
Blind to the pain you've seen
Forgetting your own dire origins
Lie sheltering your spawn
You dehumanize the poor
It is the only way to feel less culpable
Civilization was created to conserve the power of the greedy few
Coaxing the uneducated into servitude
Collect the product smile and give them nothing
Point the finger
Concentrate the hate on the intellectuals
Blameless they bathe in gold and wine
It is in our nature to need someone to blame
To deny you play a role is to deny the shame
Social conditioning
Violence sickening
Selfish desire to be superior
Political inoculation
Tarnished moral core
Bigotry the only way to shield you from the horror
The majority of humanity with nothing to lose
Beyond the point of no return
Violation of human rights and genocide
All began with concentration of wealth and power
The only way to cure the earth of its suffering
Is to destroy the bedrock of inequality
Systematically dismantle currency and weaponry
Manage to eliminate all human greed
Truthfully this is impossible
Dark impulses are highly ingrained
Concentrated power doesn't dissipate
Empathy is not instinctual
Facades rarely fade
The sum of human knowledge to this point
Hasn't shown a fraction of a plan
To separate depravity from man
We have been indoctrinated so
Completely from our birth
To view others as undeserved
Of their portion of the earth
Understand the truth
They are just as sick
Disgusting just like all the rest

[Solo: Colin Butler]

It is in our nature to need someone to blame
To deny you play a role is to deny the shame
Social conditioning
Violence sickening selfish desire to be superior
Political inoculation
Tarnished moral core
Bigotry the only way to shield you from the horror
The majority of humanity with nothing to lose
Beyond the point of no return
Millions perish every year from starvation and plague
With cooperation we could have saved them
An idealist’s dream
Never to be seen
Too stuck in cultural boundaries seen as sacred
As you're sitting on your throne
Divine privilege
Cabinet full Of rotting wasted food
Remember this
Nothing’s permanent
Not one fucking cent
Those you pushed away will be laughing when they dump you in your grave
