Set Fire To The Hive

Set Fire To The Hive

Karnivool

I don't know what's wrong but I'm on fire,
It seers through my hands, leaving skin on the wire
Awake in this womb with a crown sting in my self
When I listen, the same cry plays on.

We're slaves
In this medicated cage
Make a decision to face this change.
The rules they don't explain
So why do we obey?

Politics, religion, your vision's the same
You played us, as both a cancer and a cure
Which reminds me that it's just a game
You're alibi a sales pitch
Your pretty boy, pretty face dolled up again
A star for us to adore
And you man you've got to be more
Cause this effects all.

It's nice to know you're with us today
I've seen you in the fall along the way.

I spit in the mouth of your god
Who whispers in the minds of our children
You've been sold again.
Set fire to the hive as you flee
It's fiction, a faceless illusion
You've been had again.

You swing this wrecking ball
A violent pendulum
To hypnotize them all.

The writing on the wall,
That we keep missing
A structure built to fall
Still we all obey.

It's nice to know you're with us today
I've seen you in the fog along the way.

I spit in the mouth of your god
Who whispers in the minds of our children
You've been sold again
Set fire to the hive as you flee
It's fiction, a faceless illusion
You've been had again.

There's no second chances here
There's no second chances here
There's no second chances here.
