Rise and Fall Lyrics
This human incompetence and its consequence
Sub-human intolerance hitting home
This stupid old prejudice and its consequence
Civilian rights are not right
For all deserve rights, large and small

Rise and fall
Each breath could be the last
Chances have all come and passed

Why can't we just shake the urge to end everything?
Property lines slice through the earth
The sudden urge to control our surroundings
Money and time now define
Their worthless we rise and we fall

Rise and fall
Each breath could be the last
Chances have all come and passed
Fighting for land to own
And man will always find reasons for war
Fighting wars yields bitter rewards
So let's contemplate what to fight for

From the oceans we rise
To the ashes we fall
All for one, not one for all

Where do we go when we no longer exist?
Apologies are useless, they're nothing, they're impotent
To savour the taste of youth and sweet control
Hierarchal classes split the masses
Pray your ranking's high

Off-white, low-life, nuisance in a flawless life
Ground underfoot like ashes
The world's a fucking gas chamber
Populations rise and fall
