Parkway Drive – Crushed lyrics

[Intro]
Brothers, my brothers,
Is this all that we are?
Sisters, my sisters,
We’ve been crushed by the fists of god!

[Verse 1]
Welcome to the free world,
Where nothing’s as it seems.
Tell me, can you find a cure,
When you can’t see, and you can’t feel the disease?
Can you seek a higher truth,
When you’re living on your knees?
Where freedom grows from blood soaked soil,
In the lands of hypocrisy.

[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause if you can’t see the chains tell me what use is a key,
It’s cash, blood and oil, in the age of the refugee.
They’re trying to buy our minds, we ain’t selling,
Bang, bang, bang, hear they’re nailing down the coffins!

[Chorus]
Cut the strings, feel your heart start,
Cut the cord!
Crack this code of silence,
All our lives in the hands of tyrants!
Crushed by the fists of god,
Crushed!
Crushed by the fists of god,
Crushed!
We’ve been crushed by the fists of god!
We’ve been crushed by the fists of god!

[Verse 2]
To the left I see the rats and to the right I see the snakes,
In my ear they’re whispering sweet sermons of cruel hate.
So do you buy the fear, or do you buy the lies,
Tell me, what will set us free?
Do we kneel before the crooked few,
Or do we bite the fucking hand that feeds?!

[Pre-Chorus]
When death casts no shadow and hope carries no weight,
Rise into the light and feel the shackles fade away.
They fear what we know, we know how they break,
Bang, bang, bang, drop the hammer of conscience!

[Chorus]
Cut the strings, feel your heart start,
Cut the cord!
Crack this code of silence,
All our lives in the hands of tyrants!
Crushed by the fists of god,
Crushed!
Crushed by the fists of god,
Crushed!
We’ve been crushed by the fists of god!
We’ve been crushed by the fists of god!

[Bridge]
We’re just waiting for the sky to fall,
Yeah, I’m just waiting!
Feels like all our lives,
We’ve been waiting for the sky to fall.
Feels like all this time we’ve been...

[Hook]
Brothers, my brothers,
Is this all that we are?!
Sisters, my sisters,
We’ve been...

[Outro]
Crushed by the fists of god!
Crushed by the fists of god,
Crushed!
Crushed by the fists of god,
Crushed!
