"Prepare The Masses" as written by and Victor Jasper....
Prepare the masses 'cause this means war
And if it's a fight they want, we'll bring the hell they're looking for
With bullets blazing, the cowards hit the floor
Stand up and fight like men, let God decide who's goin'

Now sit back and watch the story unfold
Of the fair Juliet and her Romeo
Two young lovers with one heartbeat
In their devoted grave is where they'll sleep

They are the passion in a city of hate
Watching two families quarrel, ruining lover's fate
You are the ones who took your children's lives
See your two martyr's dying in love's true light, light

Sing me to sleep tonight, sweet Juliet
Two star-crossed lovers married, looking for regrets
By daybreak I'll be gone and searching for your kiss
Leave me a drop of poison waiting on your lips

In every war there will be casualties
Even family members and best friends bleed
Another tally on the body count
So how many more until we're all bled out?

Let's not forget about this tale of love
Replay the story as it's told to us
Life is precious but worth giving away
For ideals of beauty and better days, days

Sing me to sleep tonight, sweet Juliet
Two star-crossed lovers married, looking for regrets
By daybreak I'll be gone and searching for your kiss
Leave me a drop of poison waiting on your lips

I'm killing cousins, revenge I seek
In fair Verona I will lay him down, down to sleep
In desperation, poison becomes
This story's ending in a tomb of lover's trust, trust

Sing me to sleep tonight, sweet Juliet
Two star-crossed lovers married, looking for regrets
By daybreak I'll be gone and searching for your kiss
Leave me a drop of poison waiting on your lips

    General CommentHey! Nice job. I think I have a few corrections though.

    The chorus should read:

    Sing me to sleep tonight, sweet Juliet
    Two STAR-CROSSED lovers married(?), looking for regrets
    By daybreak I'll be gone and searching for your CORPSE
    LEAVE me a drop of poison waiting on your lips.

    The next line should be:

    In ever war there will be casualties
    ......
    ......
    So how many more until we're all BLED OUT.

    The bridge should be:

    I'm killing cousins, revenge I seek
    In FAIR VERONA I will lay him down, down to sleep
    In desperation, poison becomes
    This story's ending in a TOMB OF LOVER'S (trust?)

    Yay!

    General CommentUrgh, this is really off...

    Prepare the masses, cause this means war
    And if it's a fight they want, we'll bring the hell they're looking for
    With bullets blazing, the cowards hit the floor
    Stand up and fight like men, let God decide who's coming

    Now sit back and watch this story unfold
    With the fair Juliet and her Romeo
    Two young lovers with one heartbeat
    In a devoted grave is where they'll sleep
    They are the passion in a city of hate
    Watching two families quarrel ruining lover's fate,
    You are the ones that took your children's lives
    See your two martyrs dying in love's true light

    Sing me to sleep tonight, sweet Juliet
    Two star-crossed lovers marry looking for regrets
    By daybreak I'll be gone and searching for your kiss
    Leave me a drop of poison waiting on your lips

    In every war there will be casualties
    Even family members and best friends bleed
    Another tally on the body count
    So how many more until we're all bled out?
    Let's not forget about this tale of love

    Life is precious but worth giving away

    General CommentThis song follows the whole story of Romeo and Juliet.
    And it follows really close too.

    in the chorus in the beginning of the play they even use "star-crosses lovers"

    "Leave me a drop of poison waiting on your lips"
    in the play Juliet got mad cause Romeo didn't leave any poison on his lips for her to die too so she stabs herself with his sword.

    "By daybreak I'll be gone and searching for your kiss"
    in the play Romeo had to leave in the morning cause he was exclied from Verona for killing Tybalt. thats where the line "I'm killing cousins, revenge I seek" is telling you about it. Romeo kills Tybalt (Juliet's cousin) cause Tybalt killed Mercurtio (someone really close to Romeo who is also the princes family)


    So this song is really just about the Romeo and Juliet.
    who ever wrote this song must know something about Romeo and Juliet to write something this close to the story. lol.
