It's a matter of prescience,
No, not the science fiction kind.
It's all about ignorance,
And greed and miracles for the blind.
The media parading, disjointed politics
Founded on petrochemical plunder,
And we're its hostages.

If you stand to reason, you're in the game,
The rules might be elusive, but our pieces are the same.
And you know if one goes down we all go down as well,
The balance is precarious as anyone can tell,
This world's going to hell.

Don't allow
This mythologic hopeful monster to exact its price.
Kyoto now!
We can't do nothing and think someone else will make it right.

You might not think it matters now, but what if you are wrong?
You might not think there's any wisdom in a fucked up punk rock song.
But the way it is cannot persist for long,
A brutal sun is rising on a sick horizon.

It's in the way we live our lives,
Exactly like the double-edge of a cold familiar knife.
And supremacy weighs heavy on the day,
It's never really what you own, but what you threw away.
And how much did you pay?

Don't allow
This mythologic hopeful monster to exact its price.
Kyoto now!
We can't do nothing and think someone else will make it right.

In your dreams
You saw a steady state a bounty for eternity.
Silent screams
But now the wisdom that sustained us is in full retreat.

Don't allow
This mythologic hopeful monster isn't worth the risk.
Kyoto now!
We can't have vision for the future if it can't be fixed.

Alien
We need a fresh and new religion to run our lives.
Hand in hand
The arid torpor of inaction will be our demise.

Kyoto now!
