Politics of power
Politics of fear
Media distorts the facts
We all live in fear

Conspiracies of Terror
Conspiracies of Faith
Spoon-fed on uncertainty
We are taught to hate

Hate your neighbor
Distrust your peers
Everyone’s a terrorist
We all live in fear

Contradicting statements
Confusion’s just a tool
Inject on daily basis
We are played the fool

Global paranoia
Intolerance the creed
Divide and fucking conquer
It’s fear on which they feed

Fear on which they feed!

Grindcore that makes you think and grind your teeth.
