Track Name: Believe You Me
we're the twisted name in our own eyes
living in our films
as delusion blinds the thinkers sigh:
"oceania's little thrill"
still the eyes they stalk the streets at night
but only cowards kill
we brand dissenting work as orwell's lies
and we all take another pill

they've given up on hope it falls
a plague of "'it'll do"s
not to put myself above it all
i'm just the same as you
but all empires die and gods all fall
so we'll be safe and sound in just a few more years

and we know that horror sells
and the slaves they buy the newspapers in drags
so you fufil the same routine
but the dossers and the teens
we are free

So lady lay beside me
and hold on for your life
and maybe it's true "we are the dead"
but we could live a better life believe you me

on a hill there sets a different scene
where salvation's all laid bare
cause unity's just a cheesy dream
and only commies share
and from the top descends a love machine
on a wave of lies and bullshit prayers
cause faith is hopeless but hope is mean
all a ruse so for importance you don't care

and we know that bullshit sells
and the sheep need a sheperd to help them through the day ( but they don't)
your big brother keeps you down
but the heathens and the rapt
we are free

So lady lay beside me
and hold on for your life
maybe it's true "we are the dead"
but we could live a better life believe you me
and we could live another life
and we could live one more life
