Strike the anvil
Broken fingers and shattered teeth
Born to suffer
An eternity of servitude

This complacency breeds extinction
An existence with no purpose
Working these hands down to the bone
Each new sun brings bitter cold
Bleak and grim

Light is fleeting from the sky

Bound wrists with platinum cuffs
Broken backs and collapsed lungs
Like cattle, we follow with obedience
Treading the water til we drown

Break down their walls
Their mansions forged in blood
Confined to a world of poison
Asphyxiated forever
Left behind until the end

Arise from muck and mire
Born again in the flames of vengeance
Would you die for your children?
With dissent and disobedience
Trading water for Higher Ground

Blood will flow unto the city streets
Painting roads crimson with regret

Fists raised, tired and calloused
To forge a future by smashing
The skulls of the oppressors
Pulverize all opposition
Beneath the weight of the hammer
