View Just Lyrics...

War is overdue
The time has come for you
To shoot your leaders down
Join forces underground

Lose control
In increasing pace
Wantonly waste
Intention erased
Whatever they say
These people are torn
Wild and bereft
Assassin is born (yeah)

Oppose and disagree
Destroy Democracy

Lose control
In increasing pace
Wantonly waste
Intention erased
Whatever they say
These people are torn
Wild and bereft
Assassin is born (yeah)
