"Destroy The World Around Me" as written by and Steve R. Felton Dave J. Felton....
As they feed the war machine and pull the strings behind the scenes
With a bloated sense of supremacy

Blinded by the preconceived distorted way to be perceived
It's what believed by your enemy

Hold on to something here come the rains
This damn is about to break
Hold on to nothing self-contained
How much more can you take

Might is right and though is wrong it's along road nowhere
Enjoy the ride with blinders on

Your government is in control they'll keep you safe inside your homes
Board your windows lock your doors let freedom ring

Hold on to something here come the rains
This damn is about to break
Hold on to nothing self-contained
How much more can you take
Before you break
Let freedom ring

Unto the dawn of darkness glistening
Faithless savior murder me
Feed me to failure disbelief
What does it take everything I could want believe
Feed me to failure faithless savior murder me
Finish me feed me to failure murder me
Finish me what does it take to stop me
Finish me nothing could make me not believe
Won't let this world get me finish me
I'll never live your life for me unto the dawn
Unto the dawn of darkness
Unto the dawn glistening
Feed me to failure finish me
Feed me to failure murder me
Unto the dawn of darkness finish me
Finish me unto the dawn murder me

Caught in the wave of the world around me
And in this state I'm sure it could drowned me
Will I ever learn the way everywhere I turn today
Something tells me runaway something burns inside me
Even though I've pressed erase
Feel it slowly fade away
Thoughts that go on endlessly
How much longer can I wait
What does it take what does it take

Caught in the wave of the world around me
And this state I'm sure it could drowned me
Caught in the wave of the world around me
And this state I'm sure it could drowned me

What does it take what does it take

Will I ever learn the way everywhere I turn today
Something tells me runaway something burns inside me
Even though I've pressed erase
Feel it slowly fade away
Thoughts that go on endlessly
How much longer can we wait

Caught in the wave of the world around me
And in this state I'm sure it could drowned me

    General CommentThe beginning of this song-the part sung by J Mann-is soo awesome. It basically is saying how the government does whatever it feels like, including declaring war. and tells us all what to believe. The best line is 'might is right and thought is wrong, it's a long road nowhere enjoy the ride with blinders on' and it's saying how anyone who has a different opinion against the government and who doesn't believe everything that was spoon-fed to them is told how wrong they are. We've been told by the government that's we'll all be safe in our homes as long as we don't question what they do even thought they're destroying the world.

    General CommentThis song was origanally two separate songs "Destroy the world" and "The world around me" but then it was put together. The voice in the backround is Skinny, reciting the lyrics from the begining of the song.

    General CommentIt's about US government unleashing the dogs of war once again, out of a false sense of having a mission in the world. ...while in fact all they are doing is destroying the world around them. At the same time government, pretending to protect it's citizens makes it more and more impossible to speak out against them. People backing up the government are but puppets, their bloated sense of supremacy (over the rest of the world) makes them miss the point that the government just uses the war to stabilize its own powers inside the US system. He feels supressed by the waves of hatred and warmongering around him, and asks himself how much longer this senseless behaviour can go on before 'the dam breaks'.

    General CommentThe end of the part where it says "your government is in control" It doesn't say "Let Freedon Ring" yet - They dont say that until the end of the next little stanza after "before you break". Just a little lyric correction.

    Also I'm pretty sure it should be "This dam is about to break" - since the actual thing called a dam (holds water in) fits the sentence more than damn - an expression.

    Since every lyrics site I know has these same flawed lyrics, I can't say for sure who Copy/Pasted who.

    ---------------

    The background lyric is the first part of the song yes, but slightly changed.

    Like instead of "With a bloated sense of supremacy" - they say "The Puppet winks with a bloated sense of supremacy" - They add that first part on.

    And instead of "its whats beleived by your enemy" they say "Its not True, its whats beleived by your enemy"

    and the last few times they do the background thing - It sounds almost totally different than the first verse.
