Song from the band in my head

Time will tell if we're still standing

If we survived the blackest days

Revenge porn president and his merry men

Still doing their worst with their 3rd grade ways

 

Edge of the abyss and staring down

Common sense in the lost and found

 

Pied piper of the new dark age

Cliff diving lemmings plunge to their doom

Boris Karloff warriors scream to be heard

Buried alive and sealed in your tomb

 

Edge of the abyss and staring down

Common sense is in the lost and found

 

Warnings ignored and no lessons learned

Respect expected and never earned

See the torches, the fires burning bright

Hidden in the shadows of this eternal night

 

Screaming fools shout down the sane

The hour of questioning the pillars at hand

Time to see is now yet some are blind

Is it already to save this freedom's last stand?

 

Edge of the abyss and staring down

Common sense is in the lost and found

 

Warnings ignored and no lessons learned

Respect expected and never earned

See the torches, the fires burning bright

Hidden in the shadows of this eternal night

 

END
