the new gods landed
on this vast and fertile earth
wrapped in blankets of death
and the curse of a virgin birth
questioning minds and idle hands
can only do the dark one's will
so break your backs in sacrifice
until the new gods have their fill

but one amongst us brothers and sisters
must cast the first stone
or beg for table scraps
and work fingers to bloody bone
the gods of the new world they lie
basking in mansions of the sun
while the gods of the old world
prepare for Armageddon

is this a living wage?
or some slaver's ill receipt?
on that subject they demure
not a man here among you who
hasn't felt the heat
but only the twisted endure
factory floors sit cold and unused
stripped of vital machining tools
while the outsource profit margin charts
they skyrocket through the roof
and the working man is told to turn the other cheek
while the white collar wolves of the corporate packs
yeah, they feast upon the weak

get so far into this
that you end up powerless

and the halls of the innocent
are not soured by the blood of the sinners
and the gods of the old world
yeah they tear a new hole into this one
