lyrics

with sickening guile you're trying to sell
the ideal of a controlled war
accurate, unquestionable laser strikes and robot drones
viewed from above, monochromed a human life in pixel form
zero the crosshair and press return
that pixel cluster moves no more

are these the hero soldiers of the new age
remote-directed carnage from a thousand miles way?

no effort spared so that your lives may be saved
but with total indifference to the countless you take
from cowardly safety rain down your death
when you kill from afar your bravery's forfeit

time and again your nature revealed
cringing from danger unable to deal
with the risks inherent in the killing you crave
in the rage that you worship, in the wars you must wage

12 megatons, 200,000 dead, fast forward to today
and a pattern still unchanged
subverting all that's learned, twisting our every gain
yearn forever murder, a better killing dream
there are no laws for chaos
no controlled murderous spree
just animals in human skins
just death and hate and fear
