lyrics The Agonist – Rise And Fall

This human incompetence and its consequence
Sub-human intolerance hitting home
This stupid, old prejudice and its consequence
Civilian rights are not right, for all deserve rights, large and small

Rise and fall
Each breath could be the last
Chances have all come and passed

Why can’t we just shake the urge to end everything?
Property lines slice through the earth

The sudden urge to control our surroundings
Money and time now define the worth as we rise and we fall

Rise and fall
Each breath could be the last
Chances have all come and passed

Fighting for, land to own, and man will always find reasons for war
Fighting wars, yields bitter rewards so let’s contemplate what to fight for

And from the oceans we rise, and to the ashes we fall
All for one, not one for all

Where do we go when we no longer exist?
Apologies are useless, they’re nothing, they’re impotent
To savor the taste of youth and sweet control
Hierarchical classes split the masses, pray your ranking’s high

Off-white, lowlife, nuisance in a flawless life
Ground underfoot like ashes
The world’s a fucking gas chamber

Populations rise and fall
