Soldier of Dejection

Heads up!
Better start to listen.
Don’t expect to survive this mission.
Learn to submit. Our master’s permit it.
Welcome to the anarchy.
Hey!
Rise up for freedom.
No emotion. Know you don’t need ‘em.
Never unsure when napalm’s the cure.
Welcome to the anarchy.

Not long ago, you thought you’d never see yourself right here.
Within a day, you’d find the distance looking so unclear.
Can you see your reflection?
Can you see it stare back?
You won’t win this time.
And in a way it seems there’s no one above
When our life’s on the line and adrenalin’s sky-high.
We all have that one reason why.
We all want that one sign.
But you won’t win this time.

Heads up! (Heads up)
Know where you’re heading?
What’s with the tears you’ve been shedding?
Never the same, and you are to blame.
Welcome to the anarchy.
Hey!
Obey your master.
If you don’t, the day will die faster.
Savor the taste before the truth’s displaced.
Welcome to the anarchy.

I try to see it through your eyes, and I can sympathize.
I need to warn you, when it’s crystal, you can’t rationalize.
So when you see it, you’ll find out.
So when you see it, you’ll know.
You won’t win this time.
And in a way it seems there’s no one to pray to
When puppeteers want to play with our minds. Lead them astray.
We all exhale that soulful sigh.
We all want that one sign.
But you won’t win this time.

You want a war, so shield your eyes.
You’ll lose your mind.
Ironic, the way we kill them
And say it’s fine.

I know that our killing is for null.
They tell us it’s okay, pumped into our skulls.
Stand up. Now you’re here, like it or not.
You chose this, so man up and face the challenges you’ve brought.

So, can you see how you look now?
So, can you see how you’ve morphed?
And in a way it seems there’s no real escape
When horizons are glass that all shatter so fast.
We all want some kind compromise.
We all want that one sign.
But you won’t win this time.

Deep inside. Open your eyes,
And lose your mind.
You brought this on, so open wide.
And lose your.
Deep inside. Open your eyes,
And lose your mind.
You brought this on, so open wide.
And lose your mind.

I really love the Repetition of "you won't win this time." and "Welcome to the Anarchy"
