" Art is beauty everlasting "

Thinking for a greater lie you conceived yourself

Appalling to see your plans of unity only believe in material wealth

Reconstruct and disassemble your fantasies will only resemble

Coffin bound fantasies not for health, watch the masses tremble

Air your hollow promises to the sheep led by the shepherd's rule

You truly believed in mass production in using all of us as tools

Your country follows a man bound to finding that glorious jewel

Backwards complexity is the shone onto the intelligent fools

Many more have come and gone before, to all uphold this worthless chore

To lead them all into destruction like so many times before

The golden age of self-annihilation has reached it's breaking point

Collapsing inward soon without your guidance, shattering every joint

Where is your scepter your majesty? The people have lost their faith

Maybe if they had a better ruler their logic would not be misplaced

Any dream of a "UNITED STATES" too long ago was erased

Any fruit not worth taking care of is rotten disposal better left to waste

You were terrified of 9/11 and used this media for war progression

Kill a Taliban and back-mask a greater lie, helps disguise aggression

Lend a helping hand and make everyone understand your way of thinking

Capitalism and thievery are blood related, weighing down this ship that's sinking

Self imposed isolation is a pipe dream now, guess plans were too hard to stick to

Everything is your business when it's not circumstantial, evidence reflective in their minds

There is no "I" in team but there is a "Me" so individualism must prevail

All for one and one for all well it's every man for himself and it's me or the next guy in line
