Lyrics

Pax Americana

Written By: Patrick Duvall / David Duvall

HEAVEN'S DISCONTENT IS THE SCOURGE OF THE LESSER-BEING FOR THEY HOLD NO WORTH
UTTERLY OBLITERATED ARE THE PROLETARIAT IF THEY CROWD HEAVEN'S BERTH
WHEN LANDS OF WEALTH ARE CROWDED BY THE PEOPLE OF A LOWER CASTE, THE GODS SAY UNTO US
"VINI, VIDI, VICI. PAX AMERICANA"

THE PASTIME YOU ADORE; YOUR POWER'S VITAL CORE; WAR
IT'S WHAT THE CAUSE IS FOR, NOW AND FOREVER MORE - WAR

HEAVEN'S MOUNTING FEAR IS THE RISE OF THE LESSER-BEING
THEY MUST NOT SUCCEED!
THE SMASHING OF THE PEDESTAL WHICH HOLDS ONE NATION OVER GOD WOULD MEAN HEAVEN'S DEFEAT
WHEN HEAVEN'S BUT A PLACE ON EARTH: A GRAND DELUSION: A DESPERATE PLOY: A BRAINWASHED STATE OF MIND
SEE THEIR SACRED MONEY CEREMONY BOMB-INTRUSION ARMAGEDDON STAGED AND SELF-INFLICTED
ON THEIR PROPERTY AND TO THEIR OWN KIND

THE PASTIME YOU ADORE; YOUR POWER'S VITAL CORE; WAR
IT'S WHAT THE CAUSE IS FOR, NOW AND FOREVER MORE - WAR
BLOODMONEY DRIVEN WHORE! IT'S TIME TO SHIP THE POOR TO WAR
PARADING TROPHY GORE, MAKING SURE WE CAN'T IGNORE THE WAR

YOUR GODS WILL GIVE YOU MANY REASONS TO GIVE YOURSELF TO THE MACHINE
THIS HUMAN ENGINE FEEDS DELUSION AND FABRICATES A HALLOWED SCENE
A SICKNESS SWEEPS THE MINDS OF MANY
A BLACKNESS STRIKES THE FIGHTER'S HEART
LED FROM THE PASTURE TO THE SHADOWS WHERE DEMONS TEAR THE SHEEP APART

ARES! WE EMULATE WITH SUCH RESPECT
ARES! DELIVER FORTH WHAT WE EXPECT
WAR

OBJECTIFY - DECEIVE - LEAD THEM ON TRAILING FROM A LEASH
AND WHEN THEY CRY, DON'T CHANCE A CONCERN OR WE'LL TAKE AWAY YOUR LIFE AND MAKE IT BURN
SUFFER LITTLE CHILDREN
THE SMASHING OF THE PEDESTAL ARRIVES
WILL YOU BE LEFT ALIVE TO RISE ABOVE YOUR DARKEST FEAR?
WE'LL WATCH OUR LEADERS TRY TO PASS THE BUCK
TOO LATE TO TRY TO GIVE A FUCK WHEN THE RECKONING IS HERE
THE LONG-FORETOLD RISING OF THE OPPRESSED, MISTOOK AS RANTING OF OBSESSIVE PROPHETS OF THE STREET,
CHARGE THE HEIGHTS WHERE WRATH IS DROPPED TO RECTIFY AND PUT A STOP TO THE MASS DECEIT
