The band in my head

500 Days: Rage
 
Verse:
One thousand years lasted just four
Built to last walls crumble before
The harsh light of the virtual truth
Newborn already long in the tooth
 
Pre-Chorus:
All their trashing and lashing for naught
Not even sure what it was they sought
 
Verse:
 
Moths to a flame rally around insane
Ignore the crude, rude, and profane
Not willing to believe it's over and done
For their cause they'll keep staggering on
 
Pre-Chorus:
All their trashing and lashing for naught
Not even sure what it was they sought
 
Chorus:
 
The rage comes in waves, consuming us all
Hard to let go, they scream as they fall
Cling to the wreckage of his promised word,
Refusing to accept, they fight undeterred
 
Verse:
What makes him a man to follow down,
That their weary lives revolve around?
A con man pied piper singing his song
Tells you it's right, when everything's wrong
 
Pre-Chorus:
All their trashing and lashing for naught
Not even sure what it was they sought
 
Chorus:
 
The rage comes in waves, consuming us all
Hard to let go, they scream as they fall
Cling to the wreckage of his promised word,
Refusing to accept, they fight undeterred
 
End

Thanks, Hull; got a review of this on my pay site where the woman aid she suspects I haven't been around long enough to see the world as it is, so I answered, " That's bullshit, Poopy pants head!"
