Out Of Line

  • Don't give me your line
    Won't let it go this time
    And make a mockery of this obscenity
    It's gotten out of control
    Some poor unfortunate soul
    Will pay the price again, to feed your vanity

    The fascist face of the day
    Contributes blood to the fray
    And wreaks his devastation on humanity
    He hears his own people cry
    As countless innocents die
    He stands defiant in his own insanity

    Another child denied their human right to a life
    Free from the shackles that assure their slavery
    The monster in human skin, employs abduction again
    Collecting innocents

    I see the global decline, while wealthy pockets are lines
    The masses begging them to show some sympathy
    Without a care in their heart, they let it all fall apart
    Their twisted rationales have never made sense to me

    It seems destruction is a form of success for you
    These tragic visions of loss will never leave me
    You try to justify the pain that you've brought
    But you're out of line, you're out of line

    They Machiavellian minds concoct their wicked designs
    They think they're standing on the side of destiny
    Constricting freedom again they've wrought the ultimate sin
    They make pariahs of the sons of liberty

    And in the name of their god they wage their war and applaud
    The deadly dogma that controls society
    Who fucking gave you that right? to spread perpetual night
    Your holy rationales have never made sense to me

    It seems destruction is a form of success for you
    These tragic visions of loss will never leave me
    You try to justify the pain that you've brought
    But you're out of line, you're out of line

    You know I can't imagine anything less from you
    Not a single word from your mouth is worth believing
    No way to rectify the havoc you've wrought
    Know, you're out on line you're out of line

    I fear it coming, hear it coming again
    A new apocalypse in sight
    I see it coming, feel it coming again
    We won't capitulate this time

    It seems destruction is a form of success for you
    These tragic visions of loss will never leave me
    You try to justify the pain that you've brought
    But you're out of line, you're out of line

    You know I can't imagine anything less from you
    Not a single word from your mouth is worth believing
    No way to rectify the havoc you've wrought
    Know, you're out on line you're out of line Writer/s: DAVID DRAIMAN, GENO LENARDO
