First they ignore you
Then laugh at you and hate you
Then they fight you - then you win
When the truth dies
Very bad things happen
They're being heartless again

[Chorus]
I know it's coming, there's going to be violence
I've taken as much as I'm willing to take
Why do you think we should suffer in silence
When a heart is broken, there's nothing to break

You've been mixing with some very heavy faces
The boys have done a bit of bird
They don't kill their own
And they all love their mothers
But you're out of your depth son
Have a word

[Chorus]
I know it's coming, there's going to be violence
I've taken as much as I'm willing to take
Why do you think we should suffer in silence
The heart is broken, there's nothing to break

All is wonderful in past lives
Dreaming of the sun she warms
You should see me in the afterlife
Picking up the sons of dust

[No chords]
When you think we're lost, we're exploring
What you think is worthless, I'm adoring
You don't want the truth, truth is boring
I got this fever need to
Leave the house, leave the car
Leave the bad men where they are
Leave a few shells in my gun
Stop me staring at the sun

[Chorus]
I know it's coming, there's going to be violence
I've taken as much as I'm willing to take
Why do you say we should suffer in silence
My heart is broken, there's nothing to break
