Guilty è stata registrata durante le session dell'album “The Hope Six Demolition Project” ma non è stata inclusa nell'album ed è stata pubblicata come singolo.

La canzone parla di droni, un soldato annoiato in una sala di controllo a migliaia di chilometri di distanza sta guidando un Reaper. Vede una piccola figura su uno schermo e deve decidere al momento una sentenza di vita e di morte: innocente o colpevole?

There’s a little figure on the television
Scratching at the ground by a pile of rags
Grainy little figures on television screens
Weighing up the moment — guilty, guilty

What’s he doing with that stick?
What’s he doing with that stick?
Which one is guilty?
Which one is guilty?
What’s he doing with that stick?
What’s he doing with that stick?
Which one is guilty?
Which one is guilty?

Power to the predator, The Grim Reaper
Grainy little suspects running for shelter
The drones have come
Come in their thousands
But nobody asked us if we wanted them
If we wanted them
If we wanted them

Back in the bunker in the operations room
A bored soldier is eating his lunch
While drones in their thousands are unveiled in Texas
To roaring voices, but nobody asked us if we wanted them

What’s he doing with that stick?
What’s he doing with that stick?
Which one is guilty?
Which one is guilty?
What’s he doing with that stick?
What’s he doing with that stick?
Which one is guilty?
Which one is guilty?

Power to the predator, The Grim Reaper
Grainy little suspects running for shelter
The drones have come
Come in their thousands
But nobody asked us if we wanted them
Nobody asked us if we wanted them
Nobody asked us if we wanted them
Nobody asked us if we wanted them
Nobody asked us if we wanted them
Nobody asked us if we wanted them
Nobody asked us
