This song is about Metal Gear Solid: Sons of Liberty.

lyrics

GW:
You're a soldier in this army.
You're a man without a voice.
You will do all that we tell you.
Don't pretend you've got a choice.
You've been taking orders from a man whose face you've never seen.
Your whole life's a simulation.
Can't you see past the smoke screen?

Solidus:
You can block your childhood out.
But what do you have left?
A worthless little lab rat for government experiments.

GW:
Just take your best shot and show us what we can do.
But don't you ever tell yourself that we really needed you.

Raiden:
I am the lightning. I am not a snake.
My life's the risk that you were going to take
to find out I'm not what you want me to be.
What kind of Patriot does such a thing?
What kind of good to us do all you bring?
I may have changed but can't you see
inside I'm still me?

GW:
We know about your past.
We know what you've done.
A psychotic little killer with a blade and a gun.
You think you've got a purpose,
you think you've got a soul,
but your life is predetermined; you're in their control.

Raiden:
I may be alone, but I'm not a clone.
Oh, for shame!
You Sons of Liberty, give me my liberty!

I am the lightning. I am not a snake.
My life's the risk that you were going to take
to find out I'm not what you want me to be.
What kind of Patriot does such a thing?
What kind of good to us do all you bring?
I may have changed but can't you see
inside I'm still me?

Last to the Worm Los Angeles, California

Early in the day,
the bird catches its prey
and leaves its famished peers
to starve and wither way.
