All Of The Poison, All Of The Pain

Anti-Flag


Away, away I can't get away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From ourselves we shut off, from ourselves we can't escape

The world is never quiet even silence makes a sound
A pin-prick, a blank strike what was proud is still as proud
Watch it unfold on LCD screen sets
So we really, never, ever have to deal with it

Each pixel is a story of what there was before
Each cathode ray disguises just what we're looking for

Away, away I can't get away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From ourselves we shut off, from ourselves we can't escape

From the great north to a working man's hand
There's a story in the desert below the cobblestones the sand
Our indulgence is just one step away
Lust has no end when there's no end and no one awake to say

Are we afraid of you?
Are we the same as you?

Each pixel is a story of what there was before
Each wire tapped for water, to homogenize the poor
Each commercial will remind us that things couldn't get much worse

Away, away I can't get away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From ourselves we shudder, from ourselves we can't escape

Are we afraid of you?
Are we the same as you?

Away, away I can't get away
From all of the poison, from all of the pain
Away, away I can't get away
From ourselves we shudder, from ourselves we can't escape
