Pendulum – The Tempest lyrics

Saw you the other day
Looking so undermined
Acting like it wouldn't happen
Making sense of anything that you could find
Because it's just about to happen
And you'll be there
You must have known the storm was coming
When the clouds appeared

May as well let the rain come down
And join the circus of people
While you're there

Something is changing
Bruising and taking
And I'm trying
To find out
What it is
When I fix her
She's breaking
Reason keeps escaping
We're protecting
And burning like a cyst

I know that
I can help you
I just don't fucking want to
And the feeling
Is stronger by the day
Say that
I'm selfish
But I know you need this
And I'm just so
Sick of the chase

While you are letting your guard down
I will be letting myself go
While you keep running your ship aground
I will be setting myself alight

Too late, you dropped the drawbridge
You let the vampires in
You caused this shit to happen and now you want out?

Too late, you dropped the drawbridge
You let the vampires in
I hope you know now that it's nobodies fault but yours!

While you are letting your guard down
I will be letting myself go
While you keep running your ship aground
I will be setting myself alight

    It's illuminati again. Check the rain man video which talks about a new world order. We can see it at 'may as well let the rain come down'. But. It talks about irresponsibility of people which they don't want to see it, it's not that they can't. And if we tried to tell them but they didn't want to listen they will be part of this new world order. That's because some of us think that everything is alright but it isn't and when some of us find that out, it will be to late.
