Within The Ruins – Ivory Tower lyrics
False gods!
There are more criminals among us
Than behind cold prison walls
They stand on podiums above us
False promises masked in their calls, powers that lead
Fail to set precedent
Lie, cheat, fake, steal
Paint themselves in innocence
What will we do?
'Cause the fire is in our own backyard
Powers that be, fail to set precedent
Lie, cheat, fake, steal
Dress themselves in abhorrence
How can we, can we change?
What does not want to change
How can we have a voice?
While our mouths are sewn shut
False gods!
A simple smile can only hide so much
This behavior is predictable and must be treated as such
They'll always use our hope as their crutch, powers that lead
Fail to set precedent
Lie, cheat, fake, steal
Paint themselves in innocence
Powers that be
Fail to set precedent
Lie, cheat, fake, steal
Dress themselves in abhorrence
What will we do?
'Cause the fire is in our own backyard
How can we change, can we change?
What does not want to change, how can we have a voice?
While our mouths are sewn shut
We'll shrug our shoulders and accept the fact that we're all just fucked
We're all fucked What will we do?
'Cause the fire is in our backyard
We're all fucked
