Lyrics

It’s just another pointless war for another pointless reason
For the fashionista government killing’s never out of season
They’re too busy wrecking homes and too caught up in stealing lives
Preaching about peace while to our throats they’re holding knives

It’s a businessman’s war for a businessman’s reasons
For the poor man on the street, injustice is never out of season
Pretending that they give a shit but that’s just a disguise
They’re selling out our freedoms with their parlor tricks and lies

You’ve always been told to let the sleeping dogs lie
But if we don’t break the silence, the sleeping dogs die

It’s just another secret war for another secret reason
If you dare speak out against it you’ll be held for treason
Talking points and photo-ops, as if they will suffice
Desperate to hide the truth from civilian eyes

You’ve always been told to let the sleeping dogs lie
But if we don’t break the silence, the sleeping dogs die

We’re being tethered down by our own complacency
Comfortably gagged and bound at the feet
Break the chains of our oppression
They can't ignore our cries
We won't live our lives as slaves
Now together as one rise
