HOLLOW VICTORY

It feels like the wheels
Go round for the system
For a system that won’t go round
Tossed out the lost
Not found by the system
For a system that can’t be found

Victory?
Fail!
Another
Hollow
Victory...

The red queens never lose
Odds made by the system
For a system to be brought down
And when it's done
Take a look at what we've won
A ticking red clock
With a few seconds on

Yo, I'm up in DC and I'm jammin' Mindless Faith
Jammin', jammin' Mindless Faith
Jammin', jammin' Mindless Faith
Yo, I'm up in DC and I'm jammin' Mindless Faith
Yo, but this is how we roll in Charm city, Motherfucker

Money is my enemy
Money is my enemy
One more slave who can't be free
One more hollow victory
Shades of grey, faces pale
Friends of friends all the same
Raised for greed, empty souls
As if cash is the goal
Sands of time, falling fast
Thief of thieves like the past
Taught to take, rabid thoughts
What is left, leave to rot
Born to kill, selfish first
Plague of plagues, scorch the Earth
Toughened skins, trade for war
Bred to breed, nothing more

Life just keeps pouring
In the taking and whoring
Just how it seems to be
It's tough to swallow
It's just another hollow victory
