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


A structured, siphoning exploitation
Designed for wealth consolidation
All exclusive

In an ocean of fiscal corruption, all implication is morally bankrupt

Entitlement justifies starvation
For the well fed
Police the rest in concentration
Made invisible

Pulling at heartstrings to hold back the tide
Using archaisms to validate massive subjugation
Correct for deviance with bonuses and erase the conscience

Cash your economic right to gorge and be obese
Stake your claim and feed
Crush any objection
Girth has weight in policy
Pay to remain free
Swell, grow

No mistake in design, calculate
No escape from this hold, retrograde
Devalue human life for own sake
Profit from starvation, death and rape

Intricate decay, elaborate rot
Pieced together
The numbers are growing too big to hide
As it all adds up


from Perpetuation, released April 20, 2012
