the frontliners lyrics – machine head

and i watched
through bitter eyes
as the blood filled
in the cracks, black
a burning effigy
told me i should
kneel ’cause

i’m worshipping
with terror, a disease
bum the sacred oil

chorus:
they told us
there’d never come a day
they told us that
we need not worry
so we f*cked around, thought
this sh*t would change
and turned our eyes away

i am the power siege
and the rush you
will feel, thrill
exploding out of me
through clenched
teeth i will scream out

we’re suffering
with malice you deceive
puke sold as salvation

they told us
there’d never come a day
they told us that
we need not worry
so we f*cked around, thought
this sh*t would change
and turned our eyes away

lead: logan

and i watched it slip away
and you watched it slip away
and we watched it slip away

’cause no one took a stand
