Gathered at the coliseum, the arena of lunacy

Gazing at the gladiators as they hack at the limbs
A vassal of aristocracy
To observe this human circus, a familiar pastime

Mere slaves dying by the blade
All for the sake of keeping you entertained
No hope in their pleas for grace
Feverishly they welcome death, it elates

Enter the chariots, just another distraction

Every event created to divert the minds of men with the games we play
These principles permeate, seeping within the assemblage

The bloodlust is evident
And it’s ingrained in our nature
For we are born of this malevolence
The deprivation of nurture

Since the advent of the printing press
The masquerade took another form
Exploiting this inherent weakness
Entwining propaganda, the fear mongers promote a new agenda
Proliferating faith

Appropriated by a myriad empires
Bastardised by ill intent
Disseminated to the sycophant audience
The choruses of agony
The scripture is designed to bring forth hate

Commandeering our recreation, to facilitate their deeds
Spoken word, apprehended
With the aid of technological progression
The transmission of radio waves

This beast took flight
Polluting your consciousness
Sowing the divide
Engulfed in the artifice

Behold the television
Disengage and unwind
All of the wasted time
Enthralled by a fictional emotive sequence
Unequipped for the struggles of the daily grind
Over encumbered by reality

This tube is the gospel, the ultimate revelation

Bypassing logic, circumventing our reasoning
Programmed to pursue want as need

Altering brain waves for hypnosis of the hive mind

Oh what stain of an existence
A life spent living in a prison
Constant spectators accepting the tide of impressions
A wretched state of self destruction

An attention deficit

Attention deficit

Preoccupation with this virtual interest, a nonexistence
A hollow truth, simulated subsistence
We're digging our own graves
The timeless art, perversion of the nescient.

Five individuals bound together by a mutual lust for the extreme.
