A Gentlemen's Coup

The pain, disorder

A cataclysmic dawn

We trusted but something has gone wrong

We bought it

But woke to find it gone

Impact in 5, 4, 3, 2

 

Brace, for fallout

The radiation creeps

On cats' feet

We scatter in the streets

She asks me "do you think it's safe to breathe?"

It doesn't look that way to me

 

We storm the gates

Raise the flags

Just the same old story

We seize the throne

Subjugate

We should have burned it to the ground

Whoah...

(Storm the gates, Raise the flags)

Woah....

(Seize the throne, Subjugate)

Some might say we've lost our way

But I believe we've not gone far enough

 

Afraid, we cower

To interests not our own

The power to free or to control

We let it slip through

Our fingers to the floor

Watch as the bodies wash ashore

Whoah...

Nobody lives here anymore

 

We storm the gates

Raise the flags

Just the same old story

We seize the throne

Subjugate

We should have burned it to the ground

Whoah...

(Storm the gates, Raise the flags)

Woah....

(Seize the throne, Subjugate)

Some might say we've lost our way

But I believe we've not gone far enough

 

And how long will we fall for this?

How long will we fall for this?

How long will we fall for this?

And how long will we fall?

 

And how long will we fall for this?

How long will we fall for this?

How long will we fall for this?

How long, how...?

 

We storm the gates

Raise the flags

Just the same old story

We seize the throne

Subjugate

We should have burned it to the ground

Whoah...

(Storm the gates, Raise the flags)

Woah....

(Seize the throne, Subjugate)

Some might say we've lost our way

But I believe we've not gone far enough
