Song from the band in my head

Verse:

Came out of the east, made possible by you,

Minds set in stone, but you haven’t a clue

Flailing and failing in equal measure,

Screaming and voting with eyes all about pleasure

 

Pre-Chorus:

The hell with you ‘cause I got mine

Delusion and certainty draw the line

 

Verse:

Selfish creed feeds at the trough

Empty words and something is off

All about me is given the nod

Greed lurking behind a selfless facade

 

Pre-Chorus:

The hell with you ‘cause I got mine

Delusion and certainty draw the line

 

Chorus:

Unbelievable, it’s the rise and the fall

Want what you want and destroying all

Mad conductor playing out a mad tune

Haunting melody and howl at the moon

 

Verse:

Grasp at delusion and ride it on down,

Certain destruction when you hit the ground

Ears that don’t hear, eyes that don’t see

Disaster for you and disaster for me

 

Pre-Chorus:

The hell with you ‘cause I got mine

Delusion and certainty draw the line

 

Chorus:

Unbelievable, it’s the rise and fall

Want what you want and destroying all

Mad conductor playing out a mad tune

Haunting melody and howl at the moon

 

END
