Soul Stealers

Over run with soulless things
Of blood and cartilage and  
Hollow carcasses
Walking about with dead eyes
That only see the now
Spineless back stabbing vermin
Multiplying by binary fission
Infesting the world
Eager to serve
They prostitute themselves
At their idolís whim
No pride in anything
No thought given
To the rest of us
That toil righteously alongside
Ethics burned into our souls
Fighting for equality and
A foothold to withstand
The raging machines
That stamp their marks and  
Steal your souls
To transform the individuality
Into cogs for replacements and
Worms to service them
We must pick up  
The banner of change and  
Let the revolution begin
While we still have a soul
