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


Snuffed upon inception
Denial of emergence
Scientific revolution quelled by benign institutions

Round and round the carousel
Repeat the cycle, repeat the past

The state of competition
Engine of devolution
Struggling for accumulation
Cyclical over-consumption

Finite space filled up with waste
Perpetuation of scarcity

Reach for the dollar at the bottom of the barrel

Tell lies to sell your wares, to wear your crown, proud

Maniacal delusions corrupting root intentions
Custom-made interpretations
Firebrand hate incantations

Summoning the Gods of wrath
Hell rained down in fiscal swaths

Raised to believe in a foolproof system
Taught how to lead as the ruling class
Tainted by notions of objective absolutism
Blind so see that there was never a backup plan


from Perpetuation, released April 20, 2012
