Even now in heaven
There were angels carrying savage weapons

An eye for an eye (for an eye)
A tooth for a tooth (for a tooth)

Run, run, run,
But you sure can't hide (hide, hide)

An eye for an eye (for an eye)
A tooth for a tooth (for a tooth)

Run, run, run,
But you sure can't hide (hide, hide)

Is that room been fit to earth?
Doesn't help the to grow sunshine?
Is this darkness all you'll take?
Have you'd passed through this life?

Run, run, run, but you sure can't hide (hide, hide)

Where you're going you're not coming back from

Run, run, run, but you sure can't hide (hide, hide)

An eye for an eye (for an eye)
A tooth for a tooth (for a tooth)
Run, run, run,
But you sure can't hide (hide, hide)

An eye for an eye (for an eye)
A tooth for a tooth (for a tooth)
Run, run, run,
But you sure can't hide (hide, hide)

This grain evil
Where is it come from?
Had it still the end of the world?
Who's doing this?
Who's killed us?
Marking us with the sign of the holy mighty man

Run, run, run (run, run)
Run, run, run (run, run)

An eye for an eye (for an eye)
A tooth for a tooth (for a tooth)
Run, run, run, but you sure can't hide (hide, hide)

An eye for an eye (for an eye)
A tooth for a tooth (for a tooth)
Run, run, run,
But you sure can't hide (hide, hide)

(An eye for an eye)
Are you righteous?
(A tooth for a tooth)
Kind?
(Run, run, run but you sure can't hide)
Do you come for ?
(An eye for an eye)
Are you loved by heart?
(A tooth for a tooth)
Do you imagine your suffers will be last?
(Run, run, run, but you sure can't hide)
Because you loved to be truth
An eye for an eye,
A tooth for a tooth,
Run, run, run, but you sure can't hide,
Run, run, run, but you sure can't hide (hide,hide)

What are you to me?

    General Comment:This song is wrong, true passages are:
    Does our ruin benefit the Earth" (not rule)
    "Are you loved by all?" (not god)

    That's it. This song explains exactly the nature of the landsharks, and one of the best videos on Earth. Think you can box it?

    General Comment:Part of the dialogue here is taken from Terrence Malik's "The Thin Red Line." Explosions in the Sky uses the same quote.

    General Comment:Good song.

    Pretty obvious message regarding pacifism and the savage nature of mankind.

    Yeah, we suck.
