Ignorance

Evil minds bend on destruction
Ignoring the pleas of their race
The final chapter in humanic abduction
All signs of society erased
People asking fewer questions
Letting politicians do their thinking
Not questioning nuclear judgment
As warheads enter our space

[Chorus]
Our atmosphere clouded with poison
We’re killing ourselves to live
Filling the world with hate and dissension
We’ll have only our lives to give
What we do now is
The key to the future
We’ll have only ourselves to blame
For arming the world with the tools of destruction
Our ignorance means death

Warring of opposing nations
Starvation amongst
Impoverished nations
Outlook bleak for the world
Ignorance of mankind
Clouding the world with residue
Of man’s toxic industry
Slowly killing nameless victims
Whose ignorance leaves them dead

[Chorus]
Our atmosphere clouded with poison
We’re killing ourselves to live
Filling the world with hate and dissension
We’ll have only our lives to give
What we do now is the key to the future
We’ll have only ourselves to blame
For arming the world
With the tools of destruction
Our ignorance means death

We’re crowded with anger inventions of danger
From man’s diabolical mind
Humanities dying no use in trying
It’s only a matter of time
How long will it be
Before there’s no air to breathe
And our water is polluted water
Ignorance runs rampant
No one is caring
Suicide of the human race
Ignorance

[Chorus]

Never Follow

Never Follow

Follow me
I’ll take you there
You needn’t think
You needn’t care
On the way
We’ll find some others
Baptize with lies
And make them brothers

No I will never follow
I will never follow
Your truth diseased and hollow
No I will never follow

Forget your thoughts
Forget your will
Tell that voice inside
To just keep still
If it gets to be too much
Just turn your eyes away
The free individual’s from a bygone day

No I will never follow
I will never follow
Your truth diseased and hollow
No I will never follow
I’ll be your destroyer
Your world’s great annoyer
I’ll be your destroyer
No worn propaganda for me

Follow me
I’ll take you there
You needn’t think
You needn’t care
We’ll all go gentle
Into that good night
There’ll be no more raging
Against the dying of the light

No I will never follow
I will never follow
Your truth diseased and hollow
No I will never follow
I’ll be your destroyer
Your world’s great annoyer
I’ll be your destroyer
No guns, knives, nor lawyers
No I will never follow
I will never follow
You can’t take my will away
My dreams will never say die

“Never Follow”

The Weapon

We’ve got nothing to fear…but fear itself?
Not pain, not failure, not fatal tragedy?
Not the faulty units in this mad machinery?
Not the broken contacts in emotional chemistry?
With an iron fist in a velvet glove
We are sheltered under the gun
In the glory game on the power train
Thy kingdom’s will be done
And the things that we fear are a weapon to be held against us

He’s not afraid of your judgment
He knows of horrors worse than your Hell
He’s a little bit afraid of dying
But he’s a lot more afraid of your lying
And the things that he fears are a weapon to be held against him

Can any part of life be larger than life?
Even love must be limited by time
And those who push us down that they might climb
Is any killer worth more than his crime?
Like a steely blade in a silken sheath
We don’t see what they’re made of
They shout about love, but when push comes to shove
They live for the things they’re afraid of
And the knowledge that they fear is a weapon to be used against them
