Are we there yet?

What’s the day
What’s the time

Deadly silence
Smokey skies

Hell broke loose
The crowd goes wild

Waxy faces
Eyes grow wide

His body is his armour
So frail and so thin
They push and shove and beat and poke but still they cannot win

(I’ll rip you to pieces) You break my fingers
(You rip me to pieces) You break my bones
(I’ll rip you to pieces) You pull the trigger
(You rip me to pieces) Our dear protector

(I’ll rip you to pieces) Your ugly grimace
(You rip me to pieces) Your evil sneer
(I’ll rip you to pieces) We flirt with madness
(You rip me to pieces) The end is near

There's no hope No redemption
(Crack my skull)
Mother please don't cry
There's is a better world for us out there
Can you see it? Or is it just me?
(And you'll be pleased)

A vague sense of unease that the gruesome climax of my life
(Crack my skull)
Was being rehearsed years in advance
(In the name of peace)

Be my friend walk me out of this plight
(Crack my skull)
Walking along the sea I see the tents and the people they're all
They're all smiling at me
(And I'm released)

Out of nowhere we became the traitor
(Crack my skull)
This is an army with no clear leader
(And make me the beast)
