- LyricsThey've got themselves a new spin
On the story, twisted for one-sided glory. Devastation soon
Becoming fuel for the masses new fury. A greedy hand in
The guise of a good man. So threatening. So deafening.
So silencing, that familiar stance. The burden now passed
- LyricsStanding against the odds to take back what they took.
Some fight with stones, some fight with guns.
But instead I choose to fight with my pen and my notebook.
Nothing for the ninth ward, just more of the same.
Wealthy wolves smell the blood of opportunity.
- LyricsTired and beaten.
Voice withering away to nothing.
I'm walking in the footsteps made by those who have been defeated.
I've watched men and women made of steel get burned up
As easily as dry leaves and left depleted
- LyricsThirsting for the absolute left you drunk on a quest for the truth.
A newfound sense of salvation, empty in the eyes, mind on vacation.
They got their ravenous claws in your skin, they know the power of
Infecting the youth.
Such a fine young boy. Join them where the water is black and you
- LyricsStaring into the sun, his eyes tearing and burning. Thoughts of that warm
day he closed up his heart to the world. Few walked beside him, many just
passed him by. So he'll just stay numb and sit there; quietly fall behind.
Watched a man climb a mountain, watched that man's end of time. No conversation
with the giver, his father lives only in his mind. Took a chance to see her.
