John Lennon's Working Class Hero was the inspiration for this one. That and the bleak fucking truth.



You talk about Freedom
You talk about Wealth
You talk about Choices
And Equality too

A Brave New World
Modern and fair
With Justice and Liberty
For all who adhere

Nothing has changed
We’re still fucking Peasants

You voice your opinion
You voice your ideas
You’re making a statement
As if anyone cares

You point out to others
This is the Land of the Free
United and faultless
And classless and free

Nothing has changed
We’re still fucking Peasants
Groveling in shit
At our Masters boot

members of Lightning Swords Of Death, Behold! The Monolith and WitchCasket.

Grindcore that makes you think and grind your teeth.
