Facing the rifles:
silent mothers and their daughters
Watch as they’re murdered
Change the channel, and you can’t be bothered

Burn! Breaching the walls that you use to divide
Crush! Crushing the lies you use to control
Blood! Flow in the halls where you plan genocide
Die! Grimace in death as history turns

This is War Aorta
pulsing over life
Endless occupation:
suicidal enterprise

Or is that I?
How quickly a victim
becomes a killer, right?

Revolution is our right
Only love will survive

Wander the carnage
Shivering whispers, coalescing
Brothers, killed for safety?
Call your sisters: Hellfire missiles!

Burn! Burning the bodies while still alive
Crush! Crushing the children asleep in their homes
Blood! Spilled in the name of the biblical Right
Die! Grimace in death as the camera turns on you

Revolution is our right
Today how dreams multiply

Revolution dawn tonight
Relay! Our scars realized

Countless hands
will rise to your throat
You will get what you deserve

We rise transformed
from sheep to carnivores
Each onslaught
only multiplies our strength

Can you feel the energy of those who’ve died?

Solo: Jeong

It’s time to riot!

Solo: Marchand

Only when we are united
can millions of fingers
combine into a single, clenched fist

Only united
can millions of veins
return us back to the heart
