lyrics

Media control the vision, I'm not seeing it
Propaganda on every whim, I'm not buying it
Miscontrol the demon within, we're only feeding it
Celebrate the centre of sin, we start believing it

Face the music desolate wind, the best is gone again
Let the worst opinion win, the hunt is on again
See the greatest fallacy rise, utter absurdity
Keep the heavy shroud on our eyes, utter stupidity

Nuclear Proliferation, they're really sellin' it
World at war we're tipping the brim, they sit and laugh at it
Profitable Armageddon, we're on the losing end
Close an eye and watch them begin, we're back to hell again

Gather children we let them in, to see the slaughtering
Teach them violent tendency in their life and gawk at it
Pray and ask the God above why, this slight of hand we're played
The rest of us afraid that we'll die
But it's the mess we made

Chorus
I don't want it to be this way, I'm a warrior
Yes I do have something to say, I'm a warrior
I will not watch it end this way I'm a warrior
I can't let this end in dismay cos I'm a warrior
I'll be fighting everyday cos I'm a warrior
I never lose the power to pray cos I'm a warrior
There has to be a different way if I'm a warrior
To change it all and save it today cos I'm a warrior

They’ve spiked me…
They’ve piked me…
They’ve hung me out to dry, falsely indicted me
I will never let them begin
Not at all this way
I will fight it all from within
To live another day
I ain’t never gonna give in
I’m gonna be okay
Never gonna call this a sin
Cos I’m gonna be okay

They’ve taken my mind
They’ve taken my dreams
They’ve taken it all
My heart is next please help me PLEASE!
I will never let them begin
Not at all this way
I will fight it all from within
To live another day
I ain’t never gonna give in
I’m gonna be okay
Never gonna call this a sin
Cos I’m gonna be okay

(Chorus)

I gotta stay awake
I gotta stay woke…
I gotta stay awake…
