Killing the Host

Killing the Host

Viral cancer parasite
Wrench the darkness from the light
We are human we are death
Kill the Host and eat what’s left

Endless growth of GDP
None for you and all for me
I’ll sell you the air you breathe
And when you die, I won’t grieve

(We are) killing the Host, killing the Host, killing the Host
Killing the Host, killing the Host, killing the Host
Killing the Host, killing the Host, killing the Host
Killing the Host, killing the Host, watching it die

Humanity is metastasis
Climate change is just the latest
Greed is our malignancy
Suck this oligopoly

You want love and you want bread
Who put these ideas in your head
Conquest is the only goal
Take a life and feed my soul

(We are) killing the Host, killing the Host, killing the Host
Killing the Host, killing the Host, killing the Host
Killing the Host, killing the Host, killing the Host
Killing the Host, killing the Host, watching it die

In the end when life is gone
It won’t matter right or wrong
We’ll tell you what you want to hear
Our propaganda is most sincere

And by the time you realize
We are the darkness not the light
My friend it will be much too late
Your assent has sealed your fate

(We are) killing the Host, killing the Host, killing the Host
Killing the Host, killing the Host, killing the Host
Killing the Host, killing the Host, killing the Host
Killing the Host, killing the Host, watching it die

You my friend, you are the Host
