Track twelve of Derelict's 2012 album, 'Perpetuation'.


When all signs point towards the catastrophic
The time for timid acquiescence has passed
Ascended logic and the proven truths of science
Must challenge all folly, distortion, and lies

Raised to buy into systemic corruption
Withheld education, enslavement en masse
The indicators of this failure in vision
Are clearly unfolding in front of our eyes

From economic perspectives and interests, we must be firm and selective
But one may call to attention the fact of the root monetary social construction


To carry on in total denial
Would be emblematic and typically “us”
A fundamental devolution of perceptions
Could crumble the balance to ashes and dust

Find the strength to overcome this abyss
To conquer greed, hate, and pettiness
To transcend animalistic existence

Scoff the words of the brash and intolerant
Cast off the chains of dependence
Become the change you’ve always envisioned
Stake a claim, for this is your planet

This is our home
