Of Mice & Men – The Hunger lyrics

[Intro]
Open up your eyes
And start to take it in,
And maybe you’ll begin
To feel like I feel once again.

[Verse 1]
We kill, to war, to murder, to hurt,
Scorch the skies and poison the earth,
And watch the stumbling efforts to partially fix it all again.
Time has cracked.
The warning sirens have faded.
It's coming.
Either hell above, or heaven below,
The board has been set, your bed has been made,
Lie in it, as you realize you can’t eat your money,
It is nothing!

[Chorus]
Open up your eyes
And start to take it in,
And maybe you’ll begin
To feel like I feel once again.
Rat race, maze,
Occupied blind sheep.

[Verse 2]
Save us, save us, save us,
There’s an answer to this,
That has walked the earth,
The first was to warn,
To teach, to lay down a life.
(Sacrifice!)
But the leaders of man convolute it all,
Sticking fingers of their virus into all that is pure,
And they dig, and they dig,
And they dig, and they dig!

[Chorus]
Open up your eyes
And start to take it in,
And maybe you’ll begin
To feel like I feel once again.
Open up your eyes
And start to take it in,
And maybe you’ll begin
To feel like I feel once again.

[Bridge]
We were the hungry, you fed us poison (fed us poison, fed us poison),
We were the silent and you kept speaking (you kept speaking, you kept speaking).
We were the hungry you fed us poison,
We were the empty and you kept taking.
We were the silent and you kept speaking,
So don’t you, don’t you look away!

[Outro]
Open up your eyes
And start to take it in,
And maybe you’ll begin
To feel like I feel once again.
Open up your eyes
And start to take it in,
And maybe you’ll begin
To feel like I feel once again.
