I'd gladly feast on those who subdue me
If only to return the favor
Of a life long struggle we're bred into
Like any man brought to the edge would do
Forbidden to speak, I'll open my mouth
Forbidden to think, I will speak out
Told never to run, I won't tread lightly
I'll never look up at you
Not allowed to see, we'll I won't be blind
Told what to eat, but I'll never believe
Made to order and thrown on the pile
This won't be the last of me

Just like an engine needs fuel
They need a people made to serve
Water and air is the catalyst
Combined with fear to make the world turn
Spinning around but for a few
While we traverse the path laid out
Combusting all the while, this machine moves on

Don't fool yourself into think you exist outside this box
Your forward thinking is the drug they use to satiate
All the while the gears turn, building friction
But I'm not afraid
No I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid to do what it takes

To stop the bleeding look to yourself
One well placed wrench to end it all

I'll throw my body
Into this machine
Let every crushing sound bring with it a change
I'll throw my heart into everything they stole from me
I'll find a weakness; a way to make this machine bleed

All they taught us
It never mean anything
All we thought we knew
We'll unlearn and find the truth
All they made us fear
We'll take back as call our own
All those gears we turned
We'll break free and burn it down
