45 (A Matter of Time)

Album: Order In Decline (2019)
  • You're something to few but nothing to me
    Someone so twisted and sick as can be
    It wasn't the plan, we gave it a shot
    You've proven a real man is something you're not

    So tell me is this what the future primitive world's supposed to be?
    A total abomination is what it looks like to me
    No reasonable explanation, can't call it a declaration
    A bigot to all, sick of it all, can we all stand up? Go!

    I believe that I
    Am losing faith in all of humankind
    But then I realize it's plain to see
    That a number is all you are to me

    Not worthy of a name, a number you'll get
    A symbol of meaningless, void of respect
    A matter of time, you get what you've earned
    We'll take pleasure in watching you burn

    So tell me is this what the future primitive world's supposed to be?
    A total abomination is what it looks like to me
    It's a masochist fascination, a character assassination
    You're the fool on the hill, we're stuck with you till, we all stand up, go!

    I believe that I
    Am losing faith in all of humankind
    But then I realize it's plain to see
    That a number is all you are to me

    I believe that I
    Am losing faith in all of humankind
    'Cause then I realize it's plain to see
    That a number is all you are to me

    I believe that I
    Am losing faith in all of humankind
    But then I realize it's plain to see
    That a number is all you are to me

    I believe that I
    Am losing faith in all of humankind
    But then I realize it's plain to see
    That a number is all you'll ever be

    A number you get Writer/s: Deryck Whibley
