[Intro]
Dm 
(x4)
 
[Verse]
Dm
What we are witnessing is the decline of western civilization
Dm                                                          G
Crushing our potential and piling it on, how will history portray us?
Dm                  Bb
Attack the family, attack their faith and dreams
Bdim                      Bb
Attack the body and the head will fall
 
[Post Verse]
Bb         Dm        Bb               Dm
A lasting legacy or ruin brought in haste?
Bb     Dm               Bb            Dm
The enemy of truth is lying there in state
 
[Solo]
Dm  Dm  Dm  F
Dm  Dm  Dm  Am
 
[Verse]
Dm                                                            Em
Another day, another manufactured crisis keeping the people distracted
Dm                                                             G
There's no one playing by the rules anymore, how will history portray us?
Dm                 Bb
A broken backbone with nothing left to lose?
Bdim                            Bb              Am
That hate the sight of all the ones that do?
 
[Pre Chorus]
Bb    Em     Dm      Bb              Dm
A lasting legacy or ruin brought in haste?
Bb     Dm               Bb            Dm
The enemy of truth is lying there in state
 
[Bridge]
Gm            Eb            Dm
A shiny new agenda, birthed from a depraved mind
   Gm              Eb     Bb  Am             G#7
Of failing us on purpose, to culturally sanitize
     Gm              Eb            Dm
Its opiates for the masses under cloak as hope and change
         Gm          Eb       Bb     Am       G#7
The "new normal" or just more of the same?
 
[Solo 2]
Gm  Gm Dm  C#m  C#m Gm
Gm  Gm  C#m  Dm
 
[Bridge 2]
Dm
The perfect plan
Must have an alibi
Dm
And the perfect pawn
To spew the party line
Dm
Of the perfect falsehood
Spoke a thousand times
Dm
The perfect words
Cover the greatest crime
 
[Break]
(Repeat)
|Dm
 
[Outro]
Dm   Am      Eb             Dm
Hell     is turning itself inside out
Am                       Dm
To lead its path up to meet us
          Dm
And we deliberately take
Bb      Am        Gm            Dm
A step, one foot closer to the grave
Dm
TO THE GRAVE

                  What we are witnessing is the decline of western civilization
Crushing our potential and piling it on, how will history portray us?
Attack the family, attack their faith and dreams
Attack the body and the head will fall

A lasting legacy or ruin brought in haste?
The enemy of truth is lying there in state

Another day, another manufactured crisis keeping the people distracted
There's no one playing by the rules anymore, how will history portray us?
A broken backbone with nothing left to lose?
That hate the sight of all the ones that do?

A lasting legacy or ruin brought in haste?
The enemy of truth is lying there in state

A shiny new agenda, birthed from a depraved mind
Of failing us on purpose, to culturally sanitize
Its opiates for the masses under cloak as hope and change
The "new normal" or just more of the same?

The perfect plan
Must have an alibi
And the perfect pawn
To spew the party line
Of the perfect falsehood
Spoke a thousand times
The perfect words
Cover the greatest crime

Hell is turning itself inside out
To lead its path up to meet us
And we deliberately take
A step, one foot closer to the grave
