Changing of the old guard.


Changing of the old guard.

Comrades....What once we swallowed now chokes us.
Rising up.. Bitter bile .. Propaganda on a grand scale.
Duped for centuries, force fed and conditioned.
The truth buried like the corpse in the grave.
At the hands of our oppressors who come disguised as our friends.

From cradle to grave they pursue us.
Leaching our strength, our compassion.
They are merciless and dogged in their quest for control .
Seeking only to serve themselves at our expense.

They will stop at nothing, their hearts are black,
The human race but pawns in a chess set.
Expendable and worthless ......
They seek only to possess you....body and soul.

They claim they will protect you.
With their weapons and their bombs.
Instilling fear and hate .. A lifetime drip feed ..
And what of those who see the truth ?

Wake up and join the ones who fight for justice, truth and man .
In unity we will bring down those who have always sought to destroy us.
Fight for our people, Viva revolution !
