"Even now in heaven there were angels carrying savage weapons."*
An eye for an eye**
A tooth for a tooth**
Run run run but you sure can't hide**
An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Run run run but you sure can't hide "Does our ruin benefit the earth?"***
"Does it help the grass to grow? The sun to shine?"***
"Is this darkness in you too? Have you passed through this night?"***
Run run run but you sure can't hide
"Where you're going you're not coming back from."
Run run run but you sure can't hide
An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Run run run but you sure can't hide
"This great evil. Where's it come from?"***
"How'd it steal in to the world?"***
"Who's doing this? Who's killing us?"***
"Mocking us with the sight of what we might have known?"***
Run run run
An eye for an eye
A tooth for a tooth
Run run run but you sure can't hide
"Are you righteous? Kind?"***
"Does your confidence lie in this?"***
"Are you loved by all? Do you imagine your sufferings will be less"***
"because you loved goodness and truth?"***
"What're you to me?"
