​Panic

This song is by Surveillance and appears on the album Oceania (2014).

A daily inundation of anger and of hate
Rampant disconnection birthed from bloody soil
A language of division permeates the air
Outrage manufactured, tearing at the seams

Panic in the empire
Panic in the streets
Panic where the fear and oblivion meets
Violence of suspicion
Violence of the mind
Violence of advantage guided by the blind

Sounding the alarm, fanning all the flames
A creed of paranoia, philosophy of spite
Ratchet up the tension, tighten all the screws
Let them hang themselves from gallows of their own

Panic in the empire
Panic in the streets
Panic where the fear and oblivion meets
Violence of suspicion
Violence of the mind
Violence of advantage guided by the blind

Hysteria prevails where reason dare not tread
Crushed beneath the pressure, shattered into sand
Among the smoking wreckage, the ruins of an age
Remnants of a riot no one can recall

Panic in the empire
Panic in the streets
Panic where the fear and oblivion meets
Violence of suspicion
Violence of the mind
Violence of advantage guided by the blind
