Enemies

Album: Amaryllis (2012)
  • Listen up!
    There's not a moment to spare
    It's quite a drop
    From the top
    So how are you feeling down there?
    It's a cold, cruel, harsh reality
    Caught, stuck, here with your enemies!

    Who do you think you are?
    Tearing us all apart
    Where did you think you could go?
    'Cause everyone already knows
    It's twenty to one
    Yeah, so you better run!

    You got the world on it's knees
    You're taking all that you please
    You want more! (You want more!)
    But you'll get nothing from me
    You're like the burden we bear
    You love the hate that we share
    You want more! (You want more!)
    But you'll get nothing from me
    But enemies! Enemies!

    You started something that you just couldn't stop,
    You turned the ones that you love into the angriest mob.
    And their one last wish is that you pay for it
    And there's no way you're getting out of this!

    Who do you think you are?
    Tearing us all apart
    Where did you think you could go?
    'Cause everyone already knows
    It's twenty to one
    Yeah, so you better run!

    You got the world on it's knees
    You're taking all that you please
    You want more! (You want more!)
    But you'll get nothing from me
    You're like the burden we bear
    You love the hate that we share
    You want more! (You want more!)
    But you'll get nothing from me
    But enemies! Enemies!! Enemies!!!

    Where did you think you could go?
    'Cause everyone already knows
    It's twenty to one
    Yeah, so you better run!

    You got the world on it's knees
    You're taking all that you please
    You want more! (You want more!)
    But you'll get nothing from me
    You're like the burden we bear
    You love the hate that we share
    You want more! (You want more!)
    But you'll get nothing from me
    But enemies! Enemies!

    You got the world on it's knees
    You're taking all that you please
    You want more! (You want more!)
    But you'll get nothing from me
    You're like the burden we bear
    You love the hate that we share
    You want more! (You want more!)
    But you'll get nothing from me
    But enemies! Enemies! Enemies!Writer/s: ERIC BASS, DAVE BASSETT, BRENT SMITH
