We Have Built (their walls)

Stalk the mortgaged malls
Obey the craven calls
Go live your thirsty dreams
Oblige their greedy schemes
Fund the walls
And sentry towers
That mark and measure
All our hours
Our minds are numb
Our dreams succumb
Caught and trapped
Attention rapt
We grant them
Total power
Sing the song
Play along
Praise the dead
Hyenas fed
Seed the bank
Fuel the fest
Charge the card
Forget the rest
Too late we fear
The truth we hear
Undone we burn
Too old we learn
Our minds succumb
Our souls are numb
Our lasting act
A Faustian pact
Our minds are numb
Our dreams succumb
Caught and trapped
Attention rapt
We grant them
Total power
