lyrics

Everything we built is riding for a fall
And everything we're building has broken down and stalled
This fire has reached the wall
So who wins after all?

Well I'm too lazy to change my frown
The sins of our father reek in this town
So sit back or lie all the way down
And watch the blood drip down her gown
Still one question lingers as the session suspends
Why a knife is concealed in the hands of our friends
To me, this system is worse and pretend
Like a stab in the back is a means to an end

Will the strength of the mass and the crass and the wise
Step out of the blacklight and out of disguise
Lean to the side you'll get a surprise
Don't lean at all and you'll break your ties
Even so who can know which path is good
And we're burned again like I knew we would
Lights, bites, pipes in the hood
The one on the stand never understood

What's the accomplishment of fame?
Stupendous, the interdependence of pain
For shame, you broke the rules of the game
But be warned, you have still one beast left to tame

We must prepare for a two front war
These next few years can redeem the past four
But first the dead must finish their tour
And the suits must come back from the shore
Everything we built is riding for a fall
And everything we're building has broken down and stalled
This fire has reached the wall
So who wins after all
