Where is God? Where is reason? Why does truth suffer from deception? I have to wonder, when will any of this make sense? Let me hear your practiced alibi Give me all the reasons why I should listen to a single word you say Indoctrinate Sell your hate What kind of world would you consecrate? Every soul the same Cold and tame Are you ready for the end game? Indoctrinate Sell your hate Come on everybody, let's celebrate That the end has come God's will be done Come on, come on, put your gun where your mouth is Your security means more to you Than your fellow man Dead are rising Yet you still don't understand Let me hear your practiced alibi Give me all the reasons why I should listen to a single word you say Indoctrinate Sell your hate What kind of world would you consecrate? Every soul the same Cold and tame Are you ready for the end game? Indoctrinate Sell your hate Come on everybody, let's celebrate That the end has come God's will be done Come on, come on, put your gun where your mouth is How could we be so blind? Missing every sign Sending signals of distress How could we be so blind? Wasting all this time Sending signals of distress Indoctrinate Sell your hate What kind of world would you consecrate? Every soul the same Cold and tame Are you ready for the end game? Indoctrinate Sell your hate Come on everybody, let's celebrate That the end has come God's will be done Come on, come on, put your gun where your mouth is

Why can't you see That no matter how dead I am inside I'm still more man than the machine? And no matter how dead I am inside I'm still more man than the machine Pin me to the plate; tear me open See what makes me tick Every moving part, the beating of my heart Isn't the view beautiful and sick? (And SIC!) Why can't you see That no matter how dead I am inside I'm still more man than the machine? And no matter how dead I am inside I'm still more man than the machine Pry me open, what do you seek? Are you looking for something you can believe? Why do you ask me? Where can it be? I told you, it's all inside of me Make the incision; transplant the heart Let's see if it takes Liquefy the skin, mold it to fit Fix it 'til it breaks And when it does, just toss it aside With the other fakes Why can't you see That no matter how dead I am inside I'm still more man than the machine? And no matter how dead I am inside I'm still more man than the machine Pry me open, what do you seek? Are you looking for something you can believe? Why do you ask me? Where can it be? I told you, it's all inside of me It's all inside of me

Why won't anybody party with me? We turn the lights down, bring in the large crowd Cue the bass, kick the dark sound up loud We see your faces turn, music you've never heard To see you move is the only thing that we yearn for Do you feel my need, my desire? Why won't anybody party with me? I just want to set this club on fire Why won't anybody party with me? I didn't come all this way just to stand on a stage And stare out at your vacant expression I got up here for you, so the least you can do Is get on your feet and fucking move Why won't anybody party with me? Is this mic on? Are we coming through? Can you see us? Are the stage lights blinding you? Are the subs up loud enough? I have to wonder, do we bring the right stuff? We turn the lights down, bring in the large crowd Cue the bass, kick the dark sound up loud We see your faces turn, music you've never heard To see you move is the only thing that we yearn for Do you feel my need, my desire? Why won't anybody party with me? I just want to set this club on fire Why won't anybody party with me? I didn't come all this way just to stand on a stage And stare out at your vacant expression I got up here for you, so the least you can do Is get on your feet and fucking move
