lyrics

Something's wrong out on the streets, the strong are preying on the weak
You can feel the heartbeat slowly failing, feel the heartbeat slowly failing
The lights go out across the city, we are listening to the dying gasp of our society
You can feel the heartbeat slowly failing, slowly failing
Something's wrong

There's something wrong
There's something wrong
There's something wrong

Trust once broken never heals, and this was not part of the deal
You can see the daylight slowly fading, see the daylight slowly fading
The truth's becoming plain to see, this is just a cheap imitation of reality
You can see the daylight slowly fading, slowly fading

Dead eyes and vacant grins, a self-inflicted blindness to the mess we're in
It's becoming clear to me that you don't care that I'm struggling to breathe
Dead eyes and vacant grins, a self-inflicted blindness to the mess we're in
It's becoming clear to me that you don't care that I can't breathe
Comment's free, so tell me what went wrong with me
I'm choking on the ashes of our cremated society
So read it the last rites, cos this is serious
So tell me what went wrong with us
We're on the streets in millions, but our voices still aren't loud enough
We've stood aside for far too long, can somebody please tell me what went wrong?

Our decisions are to blame, we're all caught up in this deadly game
You can feel sincerity slowly dying, feel sincerity slowly dying
A thousand daggers through the heart, a mortal wound to tear this rotting state apart
You can feel sincerity slowly dying, slowly dying

Dead eyes and vacant grins, a self-inflicted blindness to the mess we're in
It's becoming clear to me that you don't care that I'm struggling to breathe
Dead eyes and vacant grins, a self-inflicted blindness to the mess we're in
It's becoming clear to me that you don't care that I can't breathe
Comment's free, so tell me what went wrong with me
I'm choking on the ashes of our cremated society
So read it the last rites, cos this is serious
So tell me what went wrong with us
We're on the streets in millions, but our voices still aren't loud enough
We've stood aside for far too long, can somebody please tell me what went wrong?
