Part 1 of the 2-parter "The Revolution Looms"


Writing, I’ve seen the writings on the wall
Its time to take your stand and let those bastards burn
Walking, you know we walked on broken glass
I’ll take our lives in chains and give it to their brats

Life, as strange as your desire
But time is short, and we’re living on a wire

Hardest, I’ll make the hardest of them fall
And we can break them down no matter how tall
Life, your life slips from control
And soon your time will come and then you’re going to crawl

You know I want it now
I want to see you fall
You know it’s coming now
You’re gonna crawl

A grumbling among the masses
The end is coming soon
The death of a system
Now revolution looms
