Track Name: Mechanical Lions
They came in Mechanical Lions, backed by financial giants.
Tyrants paid to commit extreme acts of violence.
To rape a free village abandoned by science
A rich land where guerillas stand defiant but they're...
No match for these savage animals
Killing machines who destroy whoever's in their way.
A village raped, its a total massacre
A father dies for one man's greed.

A boy cries as he watches his father DIE DIE DIE DIE
He survives and takes on his fathers FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT....

THEY KILL like they seen it in a movie, throwing high fives because they love the cruelty
A CHILD FIGHTS, they killed his family, he'll never be happy he fights for the land he wont
GIVE UP, he fights with honour protects his village in the name of his father,
HERE COMES disposable soldiers, explosive with armour, their doing what they're told.

Defiant hearts pump as they wait for whatever may come
Hear the ground like the sound of a thousand drums. For a paycheck they'll kill everyone, for honour guerillas die at ease.

Pre chorus - Chorus - outro
Track Name: Guinea Pig Syndrome
Lyrics

Government, Govern men, Grubby hands, rub it in
If you’re going to fuck us, please use a rubber then.
Religions a prison, built by politicians
War is profit in the pocket of a rich man

And there’s no place to graze
I won’t fall for your catch phrase

It’s all a set up, set up, DON’T fall for it
I don’t believe in you. Heal to you Never, Never
I’m not your Guinea Pig
The last I checked, Your not my king.

Everyone’s sick, were all on medication
Money aint in the cure, the money is in sedation
THEY CONTROL EVERYTHING YOU KNOW
PLUGGED, GROWN, THE GUINEA PIG SYNDROME
Politicians never represent the people
That’s why we always end up falling for the lesser evil
PAIN, LOVE, FEAR, WHO’S PULLING THE STRINGS
WE’RE PUPPATEERS OF DISCONTENT

And there’s no place to graze
I won’t fall for your catch phrase

It’s all a set up, set up, DON’T fall for it
I don’t believe in you. Heal to you Never, Never
I’m not your Guinea Pig
The last I checked, Your not my king.

How can we raise
Our kids left to play
Among the wolves they swim
With the sharks that circle them.

And there’s no place to graze
I won’t fall for your catch phrase

THEY CONTROL EVERYTHING YOU KNOW
PLUGGED, GROWN, THE GUINEA PIG SYNDROME
