This Is Not Tradition

lyrics

Practical invasion of disputed territories
Taking land and livestock, occupy the mental quarries
Invasion in the name of distant system of belief
By information, products, soldier, covert action, thief

Empty room, empty seat, empty glass, empty hours
Why are we here singing anthems in the name of cowards
Containing nothing, being nothing, nothing to define
Empty house, empty stomach, empty chest, empty mind

This is not tradition
My ancestors weren't there
This is not tradition
What you say won't make me care
There is no tradition
We're all wasting time
There is no tradition
There is nothing to define

Enclosure, a container, as in a box, as in a room
As in an idea signaling the impending doom
Far west, near east, everything we couldn't reach
The walls insides our minds, the prisons that we teach

Empty room, empty seat, empty glass, empty hours
Why are we here singing anthems in the name of cowards
Containing nothing, being nothing, nothing to define
Empty house, empty stomach, empty chest, empty mind

This is not tradition
My ancestors weren't there
This is not tradition
What you say won't make me care
There is no tradition
We're all wasting time
There is no tradition
There is nothing to define

The moral of the story is that it's good
To forget about things or at least you could
When the past is forgotten and the future is too
You won't have a clue about what to do
