LYRICS
======

Elimination (x 3)
Die, Why, Walk Down,
A whole race, Genocide,
Taken away all of our pride,
A whole race, Genocide,
Taken away, Watch them all fall down!
Revolution, the only solution
We've taken your shit now its time for restitution
Recognition, Restoration, Reparation ( x 2 )
Watch them all fall down
Revolution, the only solution, 
The armed response of an entire nation,
Revolution, the only solution,
We've taken all your shit now its time for restitution
The plan was mastered and called Genocide
(Never want to see you around)
Took all the children and then we died,
(Never want to see you around)
The few that remained were never found,
(Never want to see you around)
All in a system...down...
Walk down... (Watch them all fall down)
Revolution, the only solution, 
We've taken all your shit now its time for restitution.
The plan was mastered and called Genocide
(Never want to see you around)
Took all the children and then we died,
(Never want to see you around)
The few that remained were never found,
(Never want to see you around)
All in a System, Down...
