lyrics

I see ‘em wandering in the cold
Forgotten, lost, and lonely souls
Broken by the weight of their delusions
A nip and tuck to be the best
A chin, a nose, a bigger chest
‘cause they haven’t invented an implant for the soul yet

Everybody wanna be the first in line
“you gotta get it while the gettin’s good and I got mine”
Livin’ isn’t livin’ if you’re killin’ time, it’s dyin’
A seed is sown, a die is cast
The future married to the past
The present slipped away while she was sleeping

The pack have gathered for the feast
They kick and bite to slay the beast
Their poison tongues are swollen, cracked, and bleeding

Everybody wanna be the first in line
“You gotta get it while the gettin’s good and I got mine”
Livin’ isn’t livin’ if you’re killin’ time, it’s dyin’
“Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em” goes the battle cry
You gotta show ‘em what you’re made of baby don’t be shy
Killin’ isn’t killin’ with a flag held high, it’s destiny

“A light!” she cried “I’ve lost my way!”
“Take me back to better days!”
“Don’t use my body to fuel the flames of a bonfire down below!”
A new soul born, another lost
Tell me what will be the cost?
When all the sheep are wolves and they start feeding?
A sea of blood no hand is clean
What ever happened to the dream?
If this is it I hope I wake up screaming
