lyrics

It all started in a C.I.A building
an agent spoke and his subordinates listened
a nazi scientist was in the room with them
acquit of his crimes for the sake of one mission
but the subject of the project was somewhat of a mystery
a brand new substance dubbed LSD
They sought to turn the drug into a chemical weapon
unleash new secrets of the minds manipulation
now they operated, under the pretense of defense
keep a close eye, on all these citizens
but keep the methods, way deep under cover
use propaganda, to spread paranoia
and sweep the lane, so the abduction could begin
blacklist that commie, nazi, fascist, hippy movement
any name will do, they can’t suspect the truth
we don’t risk exposure if they don’t have the proof

(Chorus)
When it goes down
People will say
This is the consequence
of silent consent, forgive, forget
All that we know
is just a shadow on the wall

It all started when ruthless men took position
high up in the system
driven by dreams of domination, infinite ambition
product of the war machine generation
drunk off the power gained amid the secrecy
drenched in the blood of their enemies
professional killers to the very core
but the war from overseas just moved in next door
they got to work, weeding out the spies
crossing all the lines, the problem simplified
some lives are expendable, with or without consent
the loss is acceptable
the order came from the top of the ladder
even though it conflicted with moral standards
it was carried out, to the letter
the sheep will walk when whipped by the shepherd

(Chorus)
When it goes down
People will say
This is the consequence
of silent consent, forgive, forget
All that we know
is just a shadow on the wall

Meanwhile chilling in a cell on death row
case number two dash three five six oh
chosen, because he was soon to be erased
a man with no name, and so it shall remain
they picked him up, on the night of his execution
sat him next lassie from the mental institution
packed in a van, with street rats and outcasts
and silence
