DEATH OF AN ERA - “BLACK BAGGED” ALBUM LYRICS

1. THE WARNING

(JFK Speech)

2. WE THE PEOPLE


Justice will prevail.
America, 
Look at yourself.
What have you become?

Land of the free, granting freedom only to the rich.
Tax incentives flow like champagne to their open mouths.
The weak and weary, traded as slaves, just to further their capital gains.

They leave so little for the rest,
Holed up in castles, they turn their backs on fellow man,
And raise the prices. 

We’re here to take back the world. 
We are stronger,
Than the leaders that are failing us.
And we will stand, all together,
We are united and we’re not afraid.
We are not afraid.
We the people, gave you your power, 
And it’s ours to take back.
Were taking it back.

We must bring down the federal reserve.

Our treasury is run by bank executives privately,
The central banks, the central cause of all our poverty.
They print money that is backed by nothing,
Then charge us interest at a “nominal” fee.

We’re here to take back the world, 
We are stronger,
Than the leaders that are failing us.
And we will stand, all together,
We are united and we’re not afraid.
We are not afraid.
We the people, gave you your power, 
And it’s ours to take back.
Were taking it back.

We’re here to take back the world, 
We are stronger,
Than the leaders that are failing us.
And we will stand, all together,
We are united and we’re not afraid.
We are not afraid.

3. BIG BROTHER


Hot off the printing press,
Your propaganda. 
Swallow it down with your morning coffee.
Digest the news in the american way.
God bless the motherfucking USA.

God bless the motherfucking USA.

They lie,
And you eat it up.

Turn off your TV screen.
They make a fool of you.
Every word is a misrepresentation. 
Turn off your TV screen.
They make a fool of you.

When you don’t know anything that is happening,
The government gets away with fucking everything.

This is 
Revolution,
And it won’t be televised.

They fuck up everyday,
And we can’t know it,
But they’re allowed to watch our every move.
Our privacy, their liability.
Shut down the cameras.

Fuck you big brother.

They’re safe when the people stay absent minded.
We’ve got to wake up.

It’s time
For change.
We’ve got to wake up.

We’ve got to wake up.

We’re overcome by a blinding darkness.
Our leadership’s a ghost.
Insidiously it takes our freedoms, one by one.

We must fight for a reformation,

Or turn our backs and we’ll lose it all. (x4)

God bless the motherfucking USA.


4. THE GLOBAL MOVEMENT


We will not be ignored.

Your reign of shadows is over. 
We will expose you to the world for what you really are.

You sit so high on your towers built on the backs of man,
Sadistic tyrants consuming the earth we call our home.
You’ve sat and watched the world burn,
Now we will drive you out.

We will drive you out.

Everything we’ve worked for, as a people, as a nation, as a world,
is halted by your greed, our true potential, now a blur.

We will no longer keep silent. We’re coming for you and pack of wolves. 
We, as a global movement, are denying you and your right to power. 

We will bring you to your knees. 

Bring you to your knees. x2

Your time has come, we’ve opened blinded eyes.
This is the end of your America.
We’ve swallowed your words for so long, so now, listen to mine.

We stand as one, against your one percent. 

We don’t forget, we don’t forgive.
We are Legion.

We are legion.

This ends with your final breath,
Our hands wrapped around your neck.

We will not be ignored.

Your reign of shadows is over. 
We will expose you to the world for what you really are.

You sit so high on your towers built on the backs of man,
Sadistic tyrants consuming the earth we call our home.
You’ve sat and watched the world burn,
Now we will drive you out.

5. FALSE IDOLS


You feed your bullshit to the weak.

You’ve been given a voice, but only use it for your gain.
So eager for guidance, kids believe anything you say.

So think before you speak.

Ostentatious, you need the lime light.
You feed on others’ praise.

You peddle lies, with only selfishness in mind,
Using your influence as a way to profit. 

You’ve fed your bullshit to the weak,
to the weak for too long,
Thinking your status makes you like a god,
Not held accountable and blamed for nothing.
This is a call for you to fucking change. 

You’re such a fake,
You’re nothing but a lying cheap facade. 
A fucking masquerade 
You’ve built your career on people’s pain, fears, and insecurities.

Naive, they see you as someone they should trust. 
But you repay them with words, as empty as the life you lead.

Filth.

Though it can hurt, it is your duty to expose the truth, 
Your feel good lyrics only serve to bring us further down. 
You’re just a man, given a chance to speak out,
But without your fans, no one would know your name.

Idols will fall.
And to the people you’ve deceived,
Some fault lies with you, an inability to see.  

You are too blind to see.

You’ve been given a voice, but only use it for your gain.
So eager for guidance, kids believe anything you say.

6. REFLECTION

(Instrumental)


7. HOME


Wise men say,
That home is where the heart is.
And if that’s true, 
Then I haven’t been home in ages.

And it all just feels the same, without you.
I drive these never ending roads, 
They bring me back,
They bring me back.
And if you’d only asked me,
I’d be coming home tonight.
But we both know you’ll stay silent,
So I’ll be sleeping alone tonight.

They say time heals all wounds,
But every day, without you, is a knife of its own.
They’re digging deeper and deeper, 
And I can barely find the strength
To live this life not satisfied.

You Said,
That we were never meant to be. 
But I’m finding that hard to believe when you’re a constant in my mind. 
I’ve tried to run, I’ve tried to hide, 
I even put a fucking ocean between us,
5,000 miles, but you never left my side.

And it all just feels the same, without you.
I drive these never ending roads, 
They bring me back,
They bring me back.
And if you’d only ask me,
I’d be coming home tonight.
But we both know you’ll stay silent,
So I’ll be sleeping alone tonight.

Getting over you was, 
The hardest thing that I could never do.
The last moment that we had
Is all that I can see,
Me watching you walk away.

You walked away 

I could never forget you.

And it all just feels the same, without you.
I drive these never ending roads,
They bring me back,
They bring me back.
And if you’d only ask me,
I’d be coming home tonight.
But we both know you’ll stay silent,

So I’ll be sleeping alone tonight.

8. TYRANNICIDE

Life is no game of chess.
We are not your pawns.
So fight your own wars.
Your soldiers are revolting. 

We are revolting.

You’ve sent countless men onto your battlefields, to keep your hands clean.
All under the guise that they will make their countries proud, but die for nothing.
Now listen, in the streets, there is a battle cry, we’re coming for your head.
Our retribution is at hand, and we’re taking our pound of flesh.

From time to time, the tree of liberty must be refreshed 
with the blood of patriots and tyrants.

Now the time has come for your blood to spill.

The thundering sound of your head landing in the dirt
Will resonate in the ear of every patriot.
You can run and you can hide,
But your death is just a matter of time.

Hell opens
To welcome you as its prize. x2

This is tyrannicide. x4

From time to time, the tree of liberty must be refreshed 
with the blood of patriots and tyrants.


9. COMMONER


United States,
Look at the wreck that you’ve become.
You lack
Consciousness.

You’ve lost yourself in your own negligence.
Can’t pry your mind from social media.

Now listen up.

Put down your cell phone,
Take a fucking look around.
You’re turning into a reproduction,
Slave to empty trends. 
You’re still alive,
But dead inside.
Your aspiration, just exist to exist.

Embrace a change
And overcome your apathy. 
Be honest with yourself,
There’s so much more
That you could be.

You are not beautiful the way you are,
Instead a vile piece of shit born of complacency.

Fuck you
And your indifference.

Wake up and smell the death on your skin.
You live your life without a fucking cause.

You died the day you gave your dreams away.
The walking dead all work a 9 to 5.

Embrace a change
And overcome your apathy. 
Be honest with yourself,
There’s so much more
That you could be.

You’re still alive.


10. ILLUSIONIST (PT.2)


They march in unison,
Crusade of holy purpose,
Believing only what the preacher says.
With minds too weak to see,
It’s a means of control.
Obey the masters will without a question.

You blindly follow every word.
The world is crippled by its faith.

By its faith

So tell me how your god
Is helping in the world,
Or does he choose to let his people suffer?

God is dead and we have killed him.
Reject the church and use your common sense.
This is now the age of reason.
You use religion as a placebo.

They feed on your ignorance.
You are a sheep in the churches flock.

Faith is a plague that logic can cure,
Just free your mind and you’ll see the truth.

If your father loves you so,
Why are his children in such pain?
If he’s the omnipotent one, why won’t he give the world some change?
Your faith will cease like the myth of god,
And every bible will burn.

Too long this shit
Has infected the masses.
It must purged
If we are to live on.

We will live on.

They march in unison,
Crusade of holy purpose,

Believing only what the preacher says.


11. PRESCRIPTION POISON


We’re getting sicker everyday
And take a pill to fix it.
They say it helps, but we are not
Even close to healthy.
The shit they feed us, we shouldn’t even call it food.
It’s packed with GMO’s that they would never touch themselves.

Eat up, Eat up, motherfuckers.
It’s dinner time in the US.

All hail Monsanto.

Doctors prescribe us a pill that never makes us better.
They’ll never cure us, the money’s only in the treatment.
Their diagnosis designed to keep us under their hand.
They keep us ill and we keep them rich.

We keep them rich.

Please, have some humanity for your own.
You hold our lives in your very hands. 
You can give us all a chance to fight.
Please, we need a physician
That cares more about
His patients than the money in his bank account.


Food is health care.
Your medication doesn’t heal.
It’s sick care. x2

White coats invent a new disease
And diagnose the masses.
We turn and cry for sweet relief,
Pharmaceutics meet us.
Prescription poison,
Obey and take your daily dose.
Continue to just eat the shit that ailed you from the start.

Please, have some humanity for your own.
You hold our lives in your very hands. 
You can give us all a chance to fight.
Please, we need a physician
That cares more about

His patients than the money in his bank account.

12. INANIMATE EARTH

(Instrumental)

13. BETTER OFF


The day you were born,
You became a victim.
A cruel and heartless world
Looked at you with calloused eyes.

Lost and discouraged,
Childhood in flames.
Fear and doubt are your mindset.
You can’t escape.
Live your life afraid.
You’re always so afraid.

Transcend the pain,
As the world beats you down.
You’ll find your own direction.
Without them, without them,
You’ll find a better home.
Without them, without them,
You’re better off alone.

You’ll see social norms.
You must rise above them.
Reject naivety.
Don’t let society define you.

Open your eyes to 
All that you can do.
Be sincere.
Shed your fear.
Move on without your fear.

Transcend the pain,
As the world beats you down.
You’ll find your own direction.
Without them, without them,
You’ll find a better home.
Without them, without them,
You’re better off alone.
