The dark and stormy clouds of rage came rumbling in

And the city burn a blaze so bright the night resembled morning

There was vengeance in their eyes as their voices pierced the silence

The city smelled of chaos and the news reported Riot (Riot Riot Riot!)

Drop the routine and go

The common consensus down every single road

One a looting next a shooting... It left you wondering what's next?

The city burned a blaze because of mans ignorance

[Chorus:]

We took a stand (but were we as one)

We made demands (based on opinions)

So here we stand (in our waste land)

Back where we began

Too much power made the human greed

The milk is sour and we're still in need

Eleventh hour let the blind man see

That we're back where we began I said were back where we began!

Riot, Riot, Riot (4x)

From the cold concrete ruins came the echoed cry

As the morning broke so did the sky

To reveal the seal that had been broke

The past the present the future.. A joke

I saw the market place I saw my house

I saw the school yard, park, windows broken out

Under a brand new day, a brand new sun

I stood amongst the chaos... God what have we done?

[Chorus:]

Oh my god what have we done

We waged a war that can't be won (2x)

And now we're back where we began

Riot, Riot, Riot (4x)
