lyrics

Drop the needle and throw your fists in the air
It's a bad pop song played a little too long
And it’s stuck in rotation

Musical enslavement (The hooks aren’t in that deep)
Strike a discord (Strings lead us like sheep)
A broken record, scratched and in disrepair
Playing sour notes and no one seems to care

Enter the conservatory (A conservation of madness)
A symphony of misguided wills (This sonic power we possess)
Violate the stage with indignation
A modern masterpiece with no imagination

Reveling in applause
The shifting keys make us wonder
What exactly was it we were fighting for?

The red light’s on but no one's live on the air
Hear the roar of hundreds wanting more
As they reach for salvation

Growing by the thousands (Angry voices echo everywhere)
A counter melody (Anarchy provokes the warfare)
Ear-piercing feedback ruining every rest
Call and no response, we’ve forgotten how to protest

Sharpen the picture (Give the vision its release)
Fueled by desire (The video offers no peace)
A million bits of fractal fragmented imagery
Disunity in a billion part harmony

Reveling in applause
The shifting keys make us wonder
What exactly was it we were fighting for?

Make art to make a difference and we'll show them the way
A viewing to inflame the senses all your anger is on display
Host a visual feast for the creatures, it’s a non-stop diet
Your value decreases when your crowd becomes a riot
