All Hope Is Gone  (Album Version)

All Hope Is Gone (Album Version)

Slipknot

The state of the nation, violation!
A broken promise is as good as a lie.
The hell is humongous, the devil's among us
And we will burn because we won't unite!

We won't witness anymore freedom.
Where is anybody? Do we need 'em?"
I would rather fight,
Than let another die.
We're the problem,
But we're also the solution.
All hope is gone!

If you want you cannot take it from me.
If you think you can, you still don't know me.
Let me tell you, when I said it, I meant it
And I will always have the right to defend it.

Fifty seconds, a hundred murders.
The bill of rights is a bill of sale.
What will you do when the war is over?
What will you do when your systems fail!?

[Chorus]
We have made the present obsolete.
What do you want?
What do you need?
We'll find a way,
When all hope is gone!
We've seen the fall of the elite.
Bury your life,
Take your disease.
We'll end the world,
When all hope is gone!

[Chorus]

The wretched are the wounded,
The hungry starved to death.
At a place where no-one goes,
The air itself is a final breathe.
So discontinue,
The antiseptic cash charade.
As the cry of justice comes,
Our malignant fire fades.

I am the reason your future suffers.
I am the hatred you won't embrace.
I am the worm of a pure distinction.
I am the remedy, spit in my face!
All your lies and wars are out-dated.
All your subjects are dulling mind games.
I can rattle off a million other reasons why
But doesn't matter when the only thing we love will die.

[Chorus: x2]
