The Code – Riot lyrics

The dark and stormy clouds of rage came rumbling in
And the city burn a blaze so bright the night resembled morning
There was vengeance in their eyes as their voices pierced the silence
The city smelled of chaos and the news reported Riot (Riot Riot Riot!)
Drop the routine and go
The common consensus down every single road
One a looting next a shooting... It left you wondering what's next?
The city burned a blaze because of mans ignorance

We took a stand (but were we as one)
We made demands (based on opinions)
So here we stand (in our waste land)
Back where we began
Too much power made the human greed
The milk is sour and we're still in need
Eleventh hour let the blind man see
That we're back where we began I said were back where we began!

Riot, Riot, Riot (4x)

From the cold concrete ruins came the echoed cry
As the morning broke so did the sky
To reveal the seal that had been broke
The past the present the future.. A joke
I saw the market place I saw my house
I saw the school yard, park, windows broken out
Under a brand new day, a brand new sun
I stood amongst the chaos... God what have we done?


Oh my god what have we done
We waged a war that can't be won (2x)
And now we're back where we began
Riot, Riot, Riot (4x)
