They walk with their arms away from their sides Cause it's all in the timing Who wins the fight All around them the signs are clear It's gone too far Now the showdown is here Showdown is here
Hungry dogs follow And the vultures lead Self-preservation The original greed But there's too much fire For the perfect match Now it's just a matter of the first attack
Which one is right That's no longer clear Anger has no light When it's covered with fear Never turn your back That's always when you're caught You're a dead man on the rack 'Cause you're just too proud to stop
Absolute quiet is the final warning - showdown Six minutes and the war is roaring -showdown The voice of reason was buried this morning -showdown Decision for death is the final story -showdown
We used to love it when they came on the scream The good guys strong And the bad guys mean But the story has changed Now the ending's insane The audience dies In the final frame It's the final game
Now both sides are gone No funerals No priests No crowds singing songs No heroes in the streets Both sides were wrong Just too stubborn to teach And it was just too long Before enough people had the courage to speak And say
No showdown No showdown No showdown
They walk with their arms away from their sides Will the ones who are left Still say they are right?
