And there's villians in their closets
and theives beneath their beds
And business men in mirrors
with guns against their heads
Stepstools beneath their ankles
nooses tied around their throats
Sharpening their switchblades
and sighting in our scopes

Singing no one sleeps tonight
till everything is burned
and everyone is sacrificed
No one sleeps tonight
till everything is burned
and everyone is

Maxing out their credit cards on ammuntion
They're polishing their rifles and they're polishing their guns
cause the church is drenched in fire
Town hall's under attack
They put the hostages the mayor and councilmen
they got knives against their backs

No one sleeps tonight
till everything is burned
and everyone is sacrificed
No one sleeps tonight
till everything is burned
and everyone is sacrificed
And to saves our souls
or what's left of them

Who we are is all we are
Desperation shows our pain
And so they sing
And they sing it loud
and they sing it Clearly
For their faith

Whats left of the dreams we have?
Whats left of the hope we have?
Nothing, nothing at all
[x3]

What's left of the dreams we had?
What's left?
There's nothing, nothing at all

    General CommentThis song is really cool up until the breakdown part after the last chorus. it starts off fairly fast and upbeat, then they slow it down and they start bleeding estrogen or something. I don't get it.

    General CommentIt's not their best, but it isn't their worst either.
    It's worth a listen if you like the band.

    General Comment"And there's villians in their closets
    and theives beneath their beds"

    that's about how evil is hidden everywhere today, and you can't escape it because you're part of it, and you support it. but they're still spontaneous, and you can't control it, so they can jump out at any minute and surprise you.

    "And business men in mirrors
    with guns against their heads
    Stepstools beneath their ankles
    nooses tied around their throats"

    this is about how we're all killing ourselves, whether we admit it, or not.

    "Sharpening their switchblades
    and sighting in our scopes"

    murder. period.


    Singing no one sleeps tonight
    till everything is burned
    and everyone is sacrificed
    No one sleeps tonight
    till everything is burned
    and everyone is"

    that's obviously about how we're all trying to 'make the world better', but really, all we're doing is making it a chaotic hell.


    "Maxing out their credit cards on ammuntion
    They're polishing their rifles and they're polishing their guns"

    a war reference? Or, no.

    "And to saves our souls
    or what's left of them"

    yep. that definitely fits in with the rest, does it not?

    "Who we are is all we are
    Desperation shows our pain
    And so they sing
    And they sing it loud
    and they sing it Clearly
    For their faith

    Whats left of the dreams we have?
    Whats left of the hope we have?
    Nothing, nothing at all"

    the world today is nothing, anymore. and we can think that it is, and we can hope that it is, but really, all we're doing is destroying ourselves, and we all say we want to stop it, but we can't and we won't because we're either too afraid, too unwilling, or...we just like it.
