Now the people on the left let me hear you say
That you're sick of them lies and you're not gonna take it
Now the people on the right, ain't no time to waste
Gonna start it off now, bring it on now, bring it
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands up
Stand up and demand some answers
What? Come on, can you hear me in the back?
If you can't, let 'em know and we'll turn up the track
So, come on

"They're addicted to power and they're addicted to war.
They're addicted to war and they can't break the habit."

"It should prevail. It could be drugs."

This is a song dedicated to the lost
Triggered by guilt and ignited by a holocaust
Well, you prayed for daylight and it never came
So, you better start praying again

Well, it's not a psychosis and it's not a relief
And it's nothing that's certain and it's not a belief
It's just a side-effect to maintain the illusion
You want a solution, we want a revolution

Well, I follow, we're synchronized
And I merely defined at one place at one time
And there's so much at hand that I don't understand
And circumstances demand that we all better take a stand

Give in once, well, you're giving in twice
Giving them freedom's like you're giving 'em life
But they can't keep secrets 'cause they know they're wrong
And they can't keep us down 'cause we're too damn strong

Now the people on the left let me hear you say
That you're sick of them lies and you're not gonna take it
Now the people on the right, ain't no time to waste
Gonna start it off now, bring it on now, bring it
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands up
Stand up and demand some answers
What? Come on, can you hear me in the back?
If you can't, let 'em know and we'll turn up the track
So, come on

An enemy yours is an enemy mine
And I'm just not sure if I'm wasting your time
If I could see the inertia, I'd give it a try
But I gotta project or I gotta deny

Nothing is wrong here, but something ain't right
I don't feel this, I'm not seeing this
Something ain't coming and plus I got a feeling
Don't make a sound, keep your eyes on the ceiling

Touch automatic, I know we used to have it
And I wanted to let it go, but wishing won't make it so
Nothing's gonna save you when the chips are down
Nothing's gonna save you if you don't act now

But the current event is like a curdling sound
The event hypothetical, you'd better remember
The action on the trigger's just a state of your mind
Any action or reaction's just a matter of time

Now the people on the left, let me see your faith
I want to start it off slow, then we'll pick up the pace
And now the people on the right, ain't no time to waste
Been a long time coming, but you hit the ground running
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands
'Cause it's so far gone, I'm not surprised no one understands
What? Turn it up, can you hear me in the back?
Right now so we testify, so we can never die
Right now so we testify, so we can never die
So fine

So, we all pretend we're oblivious
Perfectly serious, tell me that you needed this
Never know what you're gonna find
Never know what you might have left undefined

I can tell you what it won't be
Another web of confusions, of lies and illusions
You can't imagine the half of them, petrified
Genocide, masterminds, worlds that they've undermined

It's a place, it's a time, it's a lifeline
It's a chance to atone for a lifetime
Put your hands to the sky when you testify
Put 'em up, keep 'em up till you realize

Killing 'em once is like killing 'em twice
Kill 'em with something that's a killing device
If it's killing you slowly, like you're killing 'em nice
If it's killing hereafter, well, alright

Now the people on the left let me hear you say
That you're sick of them lies and you're not gonna take it
And now the people on the right, ain't no time to waste
Gonna start it off now, bring it on now, bring it
Now the people in the front, let me see those hands up
Stand up and demand some answers
What? Come on, can you hear me in the back?
If you can't, let 'em know and we'll turn up the track
So, come on

Now the people on the left, let me see your faith
I want to start it off slow, then we'll pick up the pace
And now the people on the right, ain't no time to waste
Been a long time coming, but you hit the ground running
Now the people in the crowd, let me see those hands
'Cause it's so far gone, I'm not surprised no one understands
What? Turn it up, can you hear me in the back?
Right now so we testify, so we can never die
Right now so we testify, so we can never die
So fine

Right now so we testify, so we can never die
Right now so we testify, so we can never die
