lyrics

Heaven's discontent is the scourge of the lesser-being, for they hold no worth
Utterly obliterated are the proletariat if they crowd heaven's berth
When lands of wealth are crowded by the people of a lower caste, the Gods say unto us
"Vini, vidi, vici. Pax Americana."

The pastime you adore. Your power's vital core. War.
It's what the cause is for, now and forever more. War.

Heaven's mounting fear is the rise of the lesser-being. They must not succeed
The smashing of the pedestal which holds one nation over God would mean heaven's defeat
when heaven's but a place on Earth, a grand delusion, a desperate state of mind
See their sacred money ceremony bomb-intrusion Armeggedon staged and self-inflicted on their property and to their own kind

The pastime you adore. Your power's vital core. War.
It's what the cause is for, now and forever more. War.
Blood-money driven whore, it's time to ship the poor to war.
Parading trophy gore, making sure we can't ignore the war.

Your Gods will give you many reasons to give yourself to the machine
This human engine feeds delusion, and fabricates a hallowed scene
A sickness sweeps the minds of many. A blackness strikes the fighter's heart
Led from the pasture to the shadows where demons tear the sheep apart

Ares! We emulate with such respect!
Ares! Deliver forth what we expect! War!
Objectify. Deceive. Lead them on trailing from the leash.
And when they yell, don't chance a concern, or we'll tear away your life and make it burn
Suffer, little children
The smashing of the pedestal arrives, will you be left alive to rise above your darkest fear?
We'll watch our leaders try to pass the buck, too late to try to give a fuck. The reckoning is here!
The long-foretold rising of the oppressed -mistook as rantings of obsessive prophets of the street-
charge the heights where wrath is dropped, to rectify/put a stop to the mass deceit
