Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Contrite, commercial, arrogance, leprosy
Consume the bitch, the fucker, mindless like a child
For pity's sake, I've had all that I can take
We try but in the end we'll see there are no more codes
Only who is shit and who's still free
Verse 2
I was gonna change the world with honor and aggression
No one listened, no one cared
All they saw was misdirection
Verse 3
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Verse 4
I don't want you anymore
(I don't want you anymore)
I don't need you anymore
(I don't need you anymore)
Verse 5
Fingerprint of God, your new religions covet
This vessel wasn't built to last
But I will live forever
You'll never have to say surrender
Verse 6
Because you're so part of it
My total honesty has no place for tomorrow
Guilty pleasures give me pain
Tell my people I can't follow
Verse 7
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Verse 8
you'll never censor me
You'd better cherish me
My reason has a voice
Freedom's gone but we'll always have a choice
Verse 9
My present future tense
It doesn't make much sense
I'm coming after you
Fuck you all, I'm the only point of view
Verse 10
Violence and dollar signs, another processed piece of shit
You hide your fault in diamonds and give away the only cost
You can't delay the inevitable lost
Don't understand the incredible path
I'm losing ground but I won't care when I go down
Verse 11
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Verse 12
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Go ahead and disagree, I'm giving up again
Verse 13
I'm giving up again
I'm giving up again
