They’re playing at a game that draws you closer Till you’re living in a world that’s ruled by fear. Always takin’ baby out that’s ok What they’re givin’ maybe it’s out of phase with me. Told you one you’re never gonna win the race Same old no tomorrow kicked in the face. We are screaming, screaming for vengeance The world is a manacled place. Screaming, screaming for vengeance The world is defiled in disgrace. Tie a blindfold all around your head Spin you ’round in the torture before the dread. And then you’re pushed and shoved into every corner Then they lead you out into the final slaughter. As the sweat is runnin’ down your neck All your praying for’s to stop your body breakin’ up. Oh your heart is pumpin’ gonna soon explode Got to fight the horror of this mental load
