"2084 (The Beasts of Orwellian Burden) Entry 13"


Don't let your civil wars
Bring you down
Still got a long, long way to go
Don't let your innocence
Be your fall
The climb's easier if you know
What it takes for one more moment
Every step is a tragedy
This is a chain that can't be broken
Beast to man, man to machine

Shatter your illusions,
No more walls
This is an age of advancement
Shatter the memories,
Of what was
It is time for us to transcend
What was will always be again
A slave to atrocity
The road is paved in our skin
Beast to man, man to machine

You rise up and cry for you guns
You take to the run, yeah
Sell your soul for fortune and fame
To a horse with no name
But you can't stop,
You can't stop...
(You can't stop the revolution)

There is always the burden of hope
Baring down with ferocity
The whip, the chain and the rope
Beast to man, man to machine
