lyrics

Their greed's contagious their game is ageless
Human shields protect the souls that they stole
Their institutions will always lead you lost
Enslave and grave you at any cost
Enormous billfolds and bigger blindfolds
Will keep you standing in line to be sold
They feed false faith just to cook your goose
Showing you the ropes while they hang the noose

Taught to survive in a culture of vultures
Fall to your knees thats the way to succeed
Thrive (Thrive)— and decay
Rot in normality revel in morality
Learn their lies then live to die
Thrive (Thrive) — and decay

Chains grow stronger the path stretches longer
A never ending mind fucking marathon
Brainwashed to perpetuate and procreate
And embrace disgrace of the human race
You're the fool that thrives inside their cage
Happily herded into the wars they wage
You're the hero decaying hidden dishonored
Hoping for your life to end self slaughtered

Taught to survive in a culture of vultures
Fall to your knees thats the way to succeed
Thrive (Thrive)— and decay
Rot in normality revel in morality
Learn their lies then live to die
Thrive (Thrive) — and decay

Blissfully cower in your decaying hour
Now reach out to hold your funeral flowers
Obeyed their way to get a piece of the crust
Into earthen arms you are thrust
You're buried or burned never to return
Casket cradled or ashed in urn
Within soil now you shall spoil
Thrive in the corpse kingdom forever loyal

Thrive — and decay
