Shikari – Encounters lyrics

Standing on behalf of the crowd
Thinking where did
I bring myself and you ask
What's the threat?

I keep running into disillusion
It's hard not to be cynical
Alternative nation inhibited
By leaders and followers
Who do you identify with?
Don't you know
You have to choose sides
Let the cleansing begin
Be sure to wear the right stigma

All I believed in faded away
Are my expectations too high
Or are you afraid of recognition
And admit it at the same time

My hero died today and
I held the knife
Walked right into it

If this is the current state
Of evolutions, count me out
My hero died today
And I should have seen it coming...
