lyrics

I will incinerate everything that you have ever loved.
And you will never see me extinguish the flames.
I will walk through the ashes,
Searching for everything left uncharred.
I will incinerate everything that you will ever love.

You ruin everything your hands have ever touched.
With arms raised toward the sky the Earth is disturbed.
The air is unsafe, the waters unclean
And the holes you create mean everything.

They dig through the dirt searching for answers,
But fail to dig through their own insides.
Our gears turn the wheels of creation
And the smoke in my lungs keep me sedated.

The machinery of man, well oiled in greed.
Repitition keeps our minds at bay.
The machinery of man, well oiled in greed.
Repitition keeps our minds at bay.
Now swarm...

While the vermin of industry pave the roads,
The only roads I've known.
I'll chip at the streets with hammers in tow
And we'll bathe in the waters that flow below.
They'll pave over the springs
And hold all dissenters beneath the streets.
They'll pave over the springs
And hold all dissenters beneath the streets.

The machinery of man, well oiled in greed.
Repitition keeps our minds at bay.
The machinery of man, well oiled in greed.
Repitition keeps our minds at bay.

With gears oiled, the machine remains.
"Oh God, please bring the rain.
Oh God, please bring the rain,
Oh God, please bring the rain, I'm begging you.
Bring the rain, we need the rain,
Please bring me the rain today."
