The Riot Before – Fifteen Minute Revolution lyrics

A fifteen-minute revolution
In fifteen minutes answers clear
In fifteen minutes we'll be better, smarter, wiser, stronger
And we'll be without fear

A lie broadcast across a nation
A lie believed widely revered
The lie is an atom bomb solution in a drop less ocean
And we're all tired and it sounds so sincere

So now we bury postage stamps under a roaring avalanche
Of plastic surgery
And cross out all the eyes of all the slow days of our lives
Evolve at record speed
Ask, Where did all the footsteps go?
The journey's end before we ever leave

I saw a single spotless raindrop
Fall from a single darkened cloud
It joined a single river carving a weaving canyon
Through a thousand feet of ground
And now I think today is water
And now I think my life is sand
And I think it will take years to erode and shape this shoreline
That I am living into a better man
