world of poison

Lyrics by Kell Martin AND Dan Arneson

 
 

It’s like four minutes
Until it strikes twelve on the villains
In the senate, and the force
They still won’t stop the wars

And those clinics
They’ll cut you apart
And make you a star
You can have beauty for the price of a heart
With your feelings cut down from the start

It’s not healing when you're peeling the scar
Thinking within the limit of the critic you are
Like the electric car
Motherfucker’s slashed the tires and broke the spare parts

We’re still breathing
This world we’re living
With worthless millions spoiled
While you were trying to feed your children

This world is full of poison
It’s in everything we love
We claim best intentions
Every time we make it worse

We make great inventions
Then make them into weapons
Educate the best of doctors
To save our looks instead of lives

World of voices
You’re falling asleep
World of poison
You’re falling asleep

This world is full of voices
None of them seem to come across
You invented the wheel
To roll your weapons around

Discovered precious fire
Just to burn it all to the ground
Sailed your ships far away
And made a slave of everyone

World of voices
You’re falling asleep
World of poison
You’re falling asleep

No words to believe in
These heartless chameleons
They can turn the wheel and
Bring us home, but they won’t

You call your gods upon me
Stuck between the devil and the deep blue sea
Like they did to Kitty Genovese
You turn your cheek

You just stand by as they bleed the weak and old
The meek, the freaks seeking hope
men into drones
Blood into gold
Medicine into dope

They got different plans
For the old brands
Used to be hot
Now it’s cold and bland

Used to be strong
Now it’s weak and puts you to sleep
Puts you to sleep

World of voices
You’re falling asleep
World of poison
You’re falling asleep

World of voices
You’re falling asleep
World of poison
You’re falling asleep
