"Survivalism" is the third track on the 2007 release Year Zero.
Survivalism is the belief that one must be prepared to survive a major catastrophe by stocking up on food and weapons.

A survivalist therefore is a person who anticipates and prepares for a future disruption in local, regional or worldwide social or political order. Survivalists often prepare for this anticipated disruption by learning skills (e.g., emergency medical training), stockpiling food and water, or building structures that will help them to survive (e.g., an underground shelter).





Survivalism (LP Version)

Found on the Year Zero album as well as the Survivalism promo.

Survivalism (Edit)

A radio-friendly edited version that is found on the Survivalism promo. The word "whore" is edited out.


An mp3 "leak" of the song appeared on Feb 16th, 2007, courtesy of KROQ:


I should have listened to her
So hard to keep control
We kept on eating but
Our bloated belly's still not full
She gave us all she had but
We went and took some more
Can't seem to shut her legs
Our mother nature is a whore

I got my propaganda
I got revisionism
I got my violence
In high-def ultra-realism
All a part of this great nation
I got my fist
I got my plan
I got survivalism

Hypnotic sound of siren
Echoing through the street
The cocking of the rifles
The marching of the feet
You see your world on fire
Don't try to act surprised
We'll do just what you told us
Lost our faith along the way and found ourselves believing your lies

[cut-up speech]

All bruised and broken, bleeding
She asked to take my hand
I turned, just keep on walking
But you'd do the same thing under circumstance I'm sure you'll understand

[guitar solo]

You've got your pacifism, I've got survivalism (x10)
