Countrymen beware there's a new ship sailing in Protecting our identity and masculinity Old fascism, new face, we've seen it before Captain of culture, sailing to purified shores Countrymen beware, ghost ship is not what it seems New Edicts of expulsion and modern witch burnings Old fascism, new face, we've seen it before Captain of culture, sailing to purified shores Old fascism, new flair, elitist's their game It's always the same bullshit, that comes back with a different name We'll be sinking your ship...

I hope you fall from your high horse While the death of humanity is washing up on European shores Oh how we mock another man’s wall, but our ignorance blinds the barbed wire at our own front door This continent is thriving on the disparity we created All the while it’s shrugging to the refugee’s fate Walls and fences, to keep us free? From what? Free from our own fear of sharing you mean! The table is lavishly laid but there is no chair for anyone who is colonially late The Politics of Pretend, it raises a levy on the lives of countless women and men

See the Ruse 01:42
We no longer see the ruse Attention effectively diverted to A subterfuge for telling the truth The damage has been done Distracted and constructed, the next #outrage does its job We learn to question others and forget what‘s done to us Distracted and constructed, suspicion is default Easy-chair damnation calls all reason to a halt Scapegoat politics, complacent as elitist late-night-entertainment resentment It's follow the money stupid, not your neighbours gender or faith Keep carrying on like this, you’ll see it when it is too late

“The guy’s got a point you know. I mean, present company excepted, They tend to be a bit different than us” Wasted money on your education short-circuit in your brain somehow I’m waiting with anticipation till everyone sees what I see now “I found this on the internet. No really, It’s more A-political This is meta. This research is sound, it goes back to eighty years ago” You just keep flying high on your pure white kite You’re a hobby-hater, but i’ll raise the alarm!

Forvm 02:45
Let me paint a picture, in tones of black and grey of an oppressive society, unwanted elements? Eliminate! And I guess you get the irony, when there will be the day, where freedom or democracy, never been more far away Don't say we didn't warn you Secured into that picture, where brothers are watching you, dissent voices long been gone, do what you've been told to do Don't say we didn't warn you The darkest walls of a new world are closing in What would you do if we're just one step away from it? Can't you hear 'em knocking? They're on your doorstep? They're not that far from here We're allowing their takeover Don't say we didn't warn you Don't say I didn't warn you The darkest walls of a new world are closing in. What would you do if we're just one step away from it? When resistance's gone and you can never run from it Soon we'll fit the mold and turn into their “citizens” We're allowing their takeover

Welcome to the eternal nation We’ve got fun and hate (for you) jump in and ride our social river as long as you’re the same We’ve done away with all coercion Unanimity is comfortable Ignorance is strength We’re built upon the right assertion that equality is flexible And we decide how much you need To each one his own This is what you longed for. This now is your home You made this and we make you

The Spectre 01:30
Singled out, mistrusted for our outlook on life for our colour, our culture, that’s how we arrived at this point Neglect and persecution, separating us from them Forced to designated homelands, desolate and grim. I am an invisible man not the spectre you expected but the spectre that’s created to be ostracized We are the ones to keep the hatefire burning We define the boundaries of safety and fear Comfortable but malicious enough we keep you mistreated Diluted we live, branded unpure I am an invincible man the spectre that you should expect the spectre that’s created and will rise
8.
Who am I? What am I? Living the life along the greyish lines I should be following until I die Pain and strive have been made obsolete but they also killed the beauty of it. Sufficient is now good enough for us Rank and file without prospect, never seen before Pick your colour as long as it is black Rank and file without prospect, never seen before There’s no colour, fucking bore Who am I? What am I? Living the life along the greyish lines Building blocks are poisoning my sight Distinction made obsolete but they also killed the beauty of it. Effective is now good enough for us
9.
We're searching for the Forvm man The breed is clean and pure A chain in the production line That's only what you're for Objectified, dehumanized, inseminated Wombs on legs are chained The dull, grey masses repopulated Your limited existence For a greater goal? What's Good is not for everyone It's obvious who lost Just a laying hen in a battery cage The patriachy claims you as a slave Defiance here is only for the brave
10.
Fed, clothed, provided Educated on need to know Free from pain and free from want Purity determines affection No space to digress from the norm Peer pressured, conditioned from birth Here is the future in action The end of history We’ve got it all figured out Here is the future in action The end of history Anesthetized but comfortable enough Watched, observed, connected Categorized, subdued Classified lives: value or trash Elevated or put down Penalized and broken Collateral to a definitive way of life This is what you get This is what you chose
