Karnivool — Set Fire To The Hive lyrics

I don't know what's wrong but I'm on fire
The singe in my hands, bleeding skin on wire
Awake in this room, in a cruel jail cell
When I listen, the same law plays on

We're slaves in this medicated cage,
Make a decision to face this change
To rules they don't explain
So why do we obey?

Politics, religion, your vision's the same
You played us, as both a cancer and a cure
Which reminds me that it's just a game
You're alibis are selfish
You pretty boy, pretty face
Dolled up again
A star for us to adore
And you, man, you've got to be more
Cause this effects all
It's nice to know you're with us
You lie
I've seen you in the fog along the way

I'll spit in the mouth of a god
Who whispers in the minds of the children
You've been sold again
Set fire to the hive as you flee
A scripture in the face of solution
You've been had again

You swing this wrecking ball
A howling pendulum
That you hypnotize them all

The writing on the wall
That we keep missing
A structure built to fall
Still, we all obey

It's nice to know you're with us
You lie
I've seen you in the fog along the way

I'll spit in the mouth of a god
Who whispers in the minds of the children
You've been sold again
Set fire to the hive as you flee
A scripture in the face of solution
You've been had again

There's no second chances left (3x)
