lyrics

Oh lord Asclepius, the bearer of the serpent
Our surgeons long for thee
Erudition lost to time
Great skills of the physician are now immutably forgotten

Devoured by superstition
Psychosis confused for demonic
Science expelled
A mistaken curse upon your flesh
They leave the maggots to feast

Regress to savagery

Introduce a new incentive
Healthcare a mere by-product
Crude methods of medicine
Subjected to barbarity to discover the cause of all our afflictions

Research sponsored and absorbed by industry
To induce a lifetime of disease
The helpless patients just kept alive by a thread
Over medicate them, create a childlike dependence

Generate diagnosis, to big pharma’s delight
Sowing sickness, to reap the returns

Treatment has been formulated to trigger a casual nexus
Entrapped within a chemical straitjacket
Left to wade through the blank crevasses of a mind, now contaminated
Waiting for a saint to promise the panacea

This is an assault on the mind an attack on your body, a broken oath
Depersonalised condition
Designed to profit from blight

Oh lord Asclepius, the bearer of the serpent
Our surgeons long for thee
Erudition lost to time
Great skills of the physician are now immutably forgotten

They could not put a patent upon nature
They engineered it and took over the biosphere

With every bite
You're steadily approaching death
Noxious concoctions leading to a sense of emptiness
Consciousness bombarded by intoxicants
Genetics modified, perturbing this mortal coil

With open arms, we welcome the approaching abyss
