Dystopia Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Dystopia (5:49)
Enter the nightmare, this future does implore,
Hijack your city state, a prison nothing more.
Rounded up like cattle, you’re forced in to the trains,
Nothing that you’ve ever known will bring you so much pain.

If you try to resist me you’ll find me inhumane,
But if you just submit you’ll live your life a slave.
Your love, your servitude will medicate your pain,
With our technology, we’ll always keep you safe.

Microchipped by darts, their thoughts are not their own,
All that’s left of human kind is now in their control.
Planned out through centuries, patient and contrived,
Prey on man’s naivety, gullible and blind.

If you try to resist me you’ll find me inhumane,
But if you just submit you’ll live your life a slave.
Your love, your servitude will medicate your pain,
With our technology, we’ll always keep you safe.

[Chorus]
The nightmare unfolds before my eyes
I will resist ‘til the end of time
A spirit born free has to break these chains
We’re lost, we must find our way.
We must find our way.
We’ll find our way.

They say that you’re a danger to everything that’s pure,
There are too many of you, they’re offering the cure.
Swift extermination if you refuse the game,
Arrested development, your vaccinated fate.

If you try to resist me you’ll find me inhumane,
But if you just submit you’ll live your life a slave.
Your love, your servitude will medicate your pain,
With our technology, we’ll always keep you safe.

[Chorus] x2
The nightmare unfolds before my eyes,
I will resist ‘til the end of time.
A spirit born free has to break these chains,
We’re lost, we must find our way.

We must find our way,
We’ll find our way.
2. Anthem (4:54)
In your eyes I see you're desperate and in hunger
Reclaim your future, in your paths uncertain
See this child it's raised in hate and in anger
His eyes wide open, his rage over passed

Torn asunder our destiny is in sight
This is the anthem to celebrate your life
Torn asunder our destiny is in sight
This is the anthem to celebrate your life

A single mother she is strained and she suffers
She saves away, her life in turmoil
A homeless man had it all and now has nothing
His spirit broken plagued from injustice

Torn asunder our destiny is in sight
This is the anthem to celebrate your life
Torn asunder our destiny is in sight
This is the anthem to celebrate your life

We have the power to make our lives they ought to be
Reconnect with our humanity
Transcend to a higher place, accepting reality
You are the key to the life that you seek
3. Boiling Point (2:47)
I sit alone and watch hypocrisy
I will fight
My frustration ever building
Tensions rise
The air runs thick with hostility
My thought are boiling and I'm full rage

I'm at the end
Patience run thin
I think I'll lose my mind
Taking no more
Your death I swore
They will not break my will

I'll make this your darkest hour
Hate will rise
My force will devastate your power
Hear them cry
I vowed to cure my aggravation
Your demise
I'm coming forth to bring a world of pain

I'm at the end
Patience run thin
I think I'll lose my mind
Taking no more
Your death I swore
They will not break my will

Satisfied eradication
Deed is done
Your spirit's dead and finally mine
Now you're gone
My sanity a fixed condition
Not your pawn
Vindication written in your blood

I'm at the end
Patience run thin
I think I'll lose my mind
Taking no more
Your death I swore
They will not break my will

Boiling Point
Boiling Point
Boiling Point
4. Anguish of Youth (4:41)
The wind's crying softly
Tears stream down her precious cheeks
The last goodbye to those she loves
Before the final sleep
The pain is just too much
She can't even face another day
Oh, the past, it haunts her
The wars won't fade away

The tragedy still haunts her
The pain she cannot bear
She wants to smile
She wants to live
Free from a life of despair
The tragedy still haunts her
The pain she cannot bear
She wants to laugh
She wants so love
Free from a life of despair

A life of pain and anguish
An empty shell yearns to be free
To break out from this prison
Of flesh and blood, she leaves
Just one more shot of whiskey
To chase the pills that help her sleep
Now she's one step closer
Her quest for inner peace

The tragedy still haunts her
The pain she cannot bear
She wants to smile
She wants to live
Free from a life of despair
The tragedy still haunts her
The pain she cannot bear
She wants to laugh
She wants so love
Free from a life of despair

The figure stands above her
Upon her lifeless chest he beats
He draws the soul back to her
She now begins to breathe
Awakened from this nightmare
Her body shivers and it shakes
She's forged a new perspective
The scars begin to fade

The tragedy still haunts her
The pain she cannot bear
She wants to smile
She wants to live
Free from a life of despair
The tragedy still haunts her
The pain she cannot bear
She wants to laugh
She wants so love
Free from a life of despair
5. V (3:39)
His mind is worn and so tortured
Suffering was part of the plan
Blades flying swift with justice
Remember the idea not the man

Rising up from the fire
Unified to be free
Stoking our fears with their lies
You are the key

Sedated they kept us all dormant
Unknowing, our lives lived in vain
Like mindless drones we're devoted
We’ve welcomed our fate as their slaves

Prepare for victory
Our minds have been awakened
Rid your life of tyranny
We are the resistance

No fear, stand tall
Resist
Tyranny falls
No lives, no war
Resist
Victory calls

Rising up from the fire
Unified to be free
Stoking our fears with their lies
You are the key

In the end we were coiled with the serpent
It took all we had to break free
Our victory, it came without violence
We vanquished, they fell to their knees

Prepare for victory
Our minds have been awakened
Rid your life of tyranny
We are the resistance

No fear, stand tall
Resist
Tyranny falls
No lives, no war
Resist
Victory calls
6. Dark City (5:42)
This place is dark and grey
Uneasy, I feel torn apart
My mind is clouded and blurred
This cry is interchanging

Sacrifice memories past
Unaware of what I’ve become

Constant changes are imploring me
Search my mind, look for the answers
Finding nothing but this fear in me
Immersing myself in his feeling
Realizing I am not alone
They are watching people changing
Unconsciously twisting memory
Gathering our human feeling

Experimenting, to understand the human soul
Endangered they’ll fade away
The wont deceive me
They’ll never take my soul away
Their life from fades

Fill our heads with false identity
Synchronizing our confusion
Using the dead for their own need
Parasitic infestation
Imprisonment in celestial space
Unlocking the human life force
Escaping their grasp now we are free
Their objective failed unknowing

Experimenting, to understand the human soul
Endangered they’ll fade away
The wont deceive me
They’ll never take my soul away
Their life from fades
7. Equilibrium (4:31)
Inject and suppress the human feeling
Love, hate, and sorrow leads us to eradication
Mankind survives, to see another lifetime
What is the final price our people will be paying?

Our lives so colorless and ruled with false devotion
Destroying anything that triggers our emotion
The enemy is one who feels the world around them
Interrogated, now they’re facing their own judgment

Destroying our stimuli
Force us too defy all that is human
The serum keeps us pacified
Stand to feel alive
Our instinct will take over

Annihilation of our feeling
Emancipation our minds healing
Determination defines existence
Eradicate with our resistance

If people awake they’ll be free from this daydream
Human instinct will break through and keep us feeling
We will not medicate, their grasp will surely crumble
Take back humanity and devastate their power

Destroying our stimuli
Force us too defy all that is human
The serum keeps us pacified
Stand to feel alive
Our instinct will take over
8. Days of Rage (2:17)
They beat you black and blue
You’re fleeced, your anger’s seething
They turned their backs on you, betrayed!
Fight or die, kill or be killed
Society’s collapsing
You watch your world die and decay

Days of rage
Days of rage
Days of rage

Unhinged and full of hate
A time bomb clearly ticking
No more, nothing left to lose
Your money can’t be found
Anger, pain, starvation
Betrayed! Domesticated fool

Days of rage
Days of rage
Days of rage

Lies destroy life
Days of rage
Lies destroy life
Days of rage
Lies destroy life
Days of rage
Lies destroy life

Decadence and ignorance
Led you to this suffering
Prison camps created just for you
Will you survive? What will you do?
When the rug’s pulled from under you
Hell is what you future’s coming to

Days of rage
Days of rage
Days of rage
Days of rage
9. End of Innocence (4:07)
Through the essence of your smile
makes this fight all worthwhile
oh, the perseverance of your life
There you were, by my side
giving me strength through your love and pride
she says carry on, carry on

Oh, the stars, they shine so bright
are they there for you and I?
I know you see the light

Carry on, be strong my son
this is the end of innocence
carry on, when I'm gone
this is the end of innocence
this is the end, my friend

Sacrifice is all we have
finding solace in your laugh
the freedom will ease your pain
washing tides and season change
things will never be the same
oh, she says carry on, carry on

Carry on, be strong my son
this is the end of innocence
Carry on, when I'm gone
this is the end of innocence
this is the end, my friend
10. Tragedy and Triumph (7:44)
Here we stand,
I know it’s always been our home
We’re awakened from our prison
A new day, it’s finally here,
We walk the streets without fear
Our humanity has risen
Digging out those microchips
That kept us dormant to resist
Singing sings of current state
We must try to elevate
Our minds and our future

We lived through their lies
No we’ll always keep
A conscious mind
And we hold our heads up high
We will never let our spirit die

The brave new world,
You know it’s always been a lie
Pushed with their manipulation
Cast away the unseen chains
They shackle you a slave
Take control of your existence
Flushing out their poison ways
Live to fight another day
The time is now to start living
We’ve taken back our dignity
We are alive and we are free
A revolution of our spirit

We lived through their lies
No we’ll always keep
A conscious mind
And we hold our heads up high
We will never let our spirit die

Time is on our side
We have prevailed
Humanity’s ultimate struggle
Hearts and minds
Are joined in victory
We are triumphant end eternal
Time is on our side
We have prevailed
Humanity’s ultimate struggle
Hearts and minds
Are joined in victory
We are triumphant end eternal

Here we stand
I know it’s always been our home
We can build a brand new future
A new day, it’s finally here
We live our lives without fear
Our humanity has risen
The task at hand to educate
So we don’t make the same mistake
Never take the road to serfdom
We are aware, we are awake
Dystopia we did escape
Never to repeat the nightmare

We lived through their lies
No we’ll always keep
A conscious mind
And we hold our heads up high
We will never let our spirit die

Time is on our side
We have prevailed
Humanity’s ultimate struggle
Hearts and minds
Are joined in victory
We are triumphant end eternal
Time is on our side
We have prevailed
Humanity’s ultimate struggle
Hearts and minds
Are joined in victory
We are triumphant end eternal
