There was a time it seemed so long ago...
The world was painted gold,
Before the hope began to corrode.
And all the people awoke to the cold,
That they had let the evil grow.

And then came the masses,
We questioned the presence of god.
Can anyone hear us?
These cries, these screams, will these footsteps be our last! ?

So they let us die the hate behind the smiles- it took them by surprise,
And the silence left us hanging while we lit up like the 4th of July!
If ignorance is peace pretend we didn't say never again,
And let forever belong to the dead...

The time is now!
This chance could be your soul redemption,
Or these tombs will bear your denial, deception, and tragedy!
One that you'll help build when you let us burn,
Biting off your nails won't heal the scratches on your eyes!

So they let us die the hate behind the smiles- it took them by surprise,
And the silence left us hanging while we lit up like the 4th of July!
If ignorance is peace pretend we didn't say never again,
And let forever belong to the dead...

And there is no excuse...
There is no lie big enough to hide beind,
That blinding lights truck the people divided.
What were they waiting for?

Our time is now!

So they let us die the hate behind the smiles- took the by surprise,
And the silence left us hanging while we lit up like the 4th of July!
If ignorance is peace pretend we didn't say never again.
And let forever belong to the dead...

Our time is now!
