Testament - P.C. Lyrics




Damn the machine the system's corrupted
Abusive power is everywhere
Our elected officals, pass laws to help
But who's paying them off
And in the end, we the people pay
Such a heavy price, just for being alive

And if this country was really free
We'd make paper from hemp and let the forest live
But corporate America, and billion dollar industries
Have so much power
Yet they stand to lose
Too much fucking money
There's nothing we can do... but...

Take back all that we've lost
At any price that it costs
Our freedom was worth fighting for
Resistance now or nevermore

And what about the CIA
What the fuck is their real job anyway
Starting civil wars in Third World countries
Importing heroin from the far east
Talk about cocaine, neither kept away
From the youths of today... now
There's nothing we can do... but...

Take back all that we've lost
At any price that it costs
Our freedom was worth fighting for
Resistance now or nevermore

Testament P.C. Comments
  1. King Diamond

    So groove/thrashy.

  2. King Diamond

    One my favorites songs!

  3. King Diamond

    I am always like it this extra man voice in this song, i don't remember anymore, what this song meaning, but something CIA and dollars and heroin and cocaine? But low is about indian, i think because Chuck Billy is part indian i guess, kind of belong tribe.

  4. King Diamond

    Maybe heaviest Testament song what they ever did, i feel that heaviest!

  5. Common Sense

    The thing with Metal and Thrash is about how shitty how world has become so its the anger of the lyrics and hardness of the music to make you numb to the shit going on all around us today....at 50 is the only music i can understand anymore...

  6. King Diamond

    Catchy song, this play in mind sometimes and also Low and shades of war too, mostly strongs songs, album however isn't quite a masterpiece.

  7. King Diamond

    Could be even that heavier than shades of war!

  8. Asan Seil

    These lyrics hold true to this very day. They were light years ahead of many of us at the time.

  9. Rat zo

    Testament woke Alex Jones

  10. goatbut29

    This whole fucking album is gold!!

  11. King Diamond

    My opinion, heaviest testament song! One my favorites, been since this came out.

  12. King Diamond

    Damn heavy and great song!

  13. King Diamond

    One bests songs in album!

  14. z0i0 C0nSeRvAtIvE ImPeRiAl RULES

    This lyric is the point of view of the left. But the song is fucking amazing!!

  15. Princess Olmeca

    Before I learned what P.C. actually meant, I thought the title stood for "Pissing Contest."

    Princess Olmeca

    I mean, it seems to fit just as snuggly in place as "Politically Correct." It may as well mean the same thing to an extent, at least in the context of the lyrics.

    James LeClair

    Hmm pissing contest usually I would think be associated with having a disagreement, while being "pc" means to censor yours words for fear of offending someone even if what you are saying is factual.

  17. gabriel gallegos

    sigue siendo de lo mejor del metal...

  18. PHILLTHEFURY

    TRADUCCION AL EPAÑOL.
     Maldita máquina del sistema de corrupto
    El abuso del poder está en todas partes.
    Nuestros políticos electos pasan leyes para ayudar 
    Pero, ¿Quién les está dando sus ganancias? 
    Y al final nosotros, el pueblo pagamos 
    Un precio muy alto, sólo por estar vivos.
    Y si este país fuese realmente libre 
    Haríamos el papel de cáñamo y dejaríamos vivir el bosque
    Pero la América corporativa y  las industrias de mil millones de dólares 
    Tienen tanto poder  y  pueden llegar a perder 
    Tanto pinche dinero que no hay nada que podamos hacer ... pero ...
    Recuperemos todo lo que hemos perdido 
    A cualquier precio que cueste
    Nuestra libertar fue hecha para luchar por ella
    Resistamos ahora o nunca más.
    Y que dicir de la CIA
    De cualquier forma ¿Cual es realmente su trabajo?
    Comenzar guerras civiles en los países del Tercer Mundo .
    Importación de heroína desde el lejano oriente.
    Y si hablamos de la cocaína, ni siquiera estuvieron alejados.
    Por parte de los jóvenes de hoy ... ahora 
    No hay nada que podamos hacer ... pero.
    Recuperemos todo lo que hemos perdido 
    A cualquier precio que cueste
    Nuestra libertar fue hecha para luchar por ella
    Resistamos ahora o nunca más.

  19. Bora

    Take back all that we've lost
    At any price that it costs
    Our freedom was worth fighting for
    Resistance now or nevermore

  20. gamerdadgeckman

    No truer lyrics to any song ever. Also this album absolutely kicks ass. Even 2 decades later its still a favorite of mine.

    BILLYLAWLESSOLIVIA

    Greg wrote the lyrics for this song. I remember talking to him about the song after their show at Bogarts back in November 1994 on the LOW Tour.

  21. Jack Krstevski

    I used to use a mac, now i use a P.C!

  22. Hari Menon

    An absolutely underrated album. Heavy as fuck. The entire album LOW totally blows your brains off! Killer music and intelligent lyrics

    michael88863

    Dedicated to the great Criss Oliva

  23. Andrew Anton

    Probably Testaments best song.

  24. Daniel Colville

    The Lyrics was a warning of the coming of "The new World order" - not the album but life itself

  25. kashsoldier

    starting civil wars in third world countries. WOW. Chuck knew what he was writing about. This is CIA shit !!

    King Diamond

  26. Kirk S

    @TheArmouredAssault Who cares?

  27. DarthMohammed

    @ChuckSchuldinerRIP0 Uh, no... it's OBVIOUSLY the lyrics to this song. That's why I put it in quotes.

    I'll assume you're joking and just fucking with me... so I don't have to point out how fuckin' stupid your comment is.

    Haha... good one, buddy! Thanks for the laughs! *rolls eyes*

  28. POLENG NESBAX

    GODDMAN RIFFS!!! \m /

  29. breakneckcrash

    I don't know about you, but the lyrics sound more like a documentary than a song.

  30. DarthMohammed

    "What about the CIA? What the fuck is their real job, anyway? Starting civil wars in 3rd world countries? Importing heroine from the Far East?"

    Makes me wanna join the CIA! Fuck yeah!
