The band in my head

Verse:
Walking the tightrope spanning the void
Two mighty armies have been deployed
Left versus right in the struggle for souls
Each living up to their well-defined roles
 
Pre-chorus:
And in the middle nothing but empty space
No compromise, no quarter, frowns on their face 
 
Verse:
With which way we go as the ultimate prize
Each set in stone, each thinks they're wise
System failure on an unforeseen scale
Each side screaming in a misery wail
 
Pre-chorus:
And in the middle nothing but empty space
No compromise, no quarter, frowns on their face 
 
Chorus:
From the edge of the world to the edge of the abyss,
Something's gone wrong and is horribly amiss
Check and balance a victim of the here and now
Not even entitled to a shot across the bow
 
Verse:
No meeting halfway when you want it all
Nobody's seeing the writing on the wall
If we don't close up ranks and do it today,
Democracy'll be the one who got away
 
Pre-chorus:
And in the middle nothing but empty space
No compromise, no quarter, frowns on their face 
 
Chorus:
From the edge of the world to the edge of the abyss,
Something's gone wrong and is horribly amiss
Check and balance a victim of the here and now
Not even entitled to a shot across the bow
 
END
