Dissecting Power

 

Abuse and authority

Always amplify each other.

How can one life

Ascend over others

Without war?

A body exists

As a volitile reaction.

The subconscious seeks balance

While the organism

Breathes and bleeds.

Fish eat fish,

Wolves eat sheep,

Humans eat everything.

We all know this,

But we’re always hungry,

Always volitile,

And alive.

Momentum is everything,

Ride it or die.

Truth and justice are ideas,

Believe or set them loose.

Choices are an action,

Reactions are inevitable,

Power responds to power,

Or else slowly falls away.

Abuse and authority

Always amplify each other.

Balance and/or power,

Which is more free?

 

Leviathan

Power, punishment, and privilege

Demanded, accepted, or predestined

Damned to be a piece of this puzzle

In assimilation as in rebellion

Welcome to the machine my son

Participate and perish herein

As cells in circuits interlaced

As blood in our Leviathan

Protection, peace, and pleasure

Paid in luxury and exploitation

Survive, thrive, and embrace it

Serve and suffer its expectations

Refuse, resist, and raise a fist

The weary, beaten, and broken-hearted

The cycle of revolution carries on

But a circle only ends where it started.

America becomes Britain, becomes Rome,

Becomes Greece, becomes Persia, becomes stone.
