​Tribalism

This song is by Enter Shikari and appears on the compilation album Tribalism (2010).

Shhhhikkarrrrri,
It was a 3rd generation aztec
His tribe accepting human reality
It was the basis of their ability to sustain with humble tranquility
But civilization encouraged religions which in turn introduced depravity
And that was a bigger realization as when my boy newton discovered gravity
'Cause it transformed the way we bounce about on a daily basis
Not content with a doubt about the knowledge of whose up there
Quick! give him a name, a trident and a chair
Sharpish, what happened to wonder?
Why can't we accept we're not capable of thunder?
So we welcome the lies with open arms and we turn into suckers when they turn on the charm!

You're trying to run us all into the ground to, be swallowed by the soil and trapped by the rain...
In your concrete garden of falseness!
You shout through our speakers and we don't turn them off...
'Cause trapped in silence it's tougher but this time we'll turn the speakers off

And we won't stay silent, we'll make as much noise as we can
And I ask what's a thought without a voice to voice it?
Its just a thought.
And I ask what's a thought without a voice to voice it?
Its just a thought.

The original affluent society,
Floating free of capitalistic anxiety

But all that has survived now is the pack vibe
But the catch is dogs don't eat other dogs
We're able animals employed by criminals in this cannibalistic society
Where we scrimp and save just to behave with the upmost propriety

You're trying to run us all into the ground, to be swallowed by the soil and trapped by the rain
In your concrete garden of falseness

You're trying to run us all into the ground, to be swallowed by the soil and trapped by the rain
In your concrete garden of falseness
You shout through our speakers and we don't turn them off

'Cause trapped in silence it's tougher but this time we'll turn the speakers off
And we won't stay silent, we'll make as much noise as we can
And I ask what's a thought without a voice to voice it?
Its just a thought

We will shout our heads off we won't stop until you hear
We wont stop until you trip up upon yourselves
We wont stay silent
We wont stay silent
