The golden rule of human survival
Don’t bite the hand that feeds
So give the masses substandard sustenance
And they won’t bite!

The golden rule of public relations
Make it look like you are the liberators
So give the masses the illusion of freedom
And they won’t rise!

The golden rule of the human condition
See through the oppressors self serving lies
Enslaved through deception, shackled by promise
Rid you of these and then you shall rise!

Out of the ashes of SlaveState arose The Grand Opiate, featuring
members of Lightning Swords Of Death, Behold! The Monolith and WitchCasket.
The Grand Opiate plays grindcore, plain and simple.
Grindcore that makes you think and grind your teeth.
