You all thrive on hate
Like there's no love left
You suck up my dreams
Then throw them away
Well it's time to meet your fate
Right here today

Rip the stars down
Right from the sky
There will be no mercy
Everyone will die
Start this over
Burn it down
And sift through the ashes of icons...

Feeding like leeches
On what gave you so much
Don't believe in god
He'll never be there
Fuck all your speaches
It's not a prayer

Rip the stars down
Right from the sky
There will be no mercy
Everyone will die
Start this over
Burn it down
And sift through the ashes of icons...

And all I wanted
Was some understanding...

Some peace
In this eternal rust
But now I'm alone
Walking through this dust
Through the ashes of icons...

    General CommentThis is about the many people who hate LA, and a terrorist destroys it because the hate gets so out of hand. At the end theres a few people left, but they are all far away from each other. Hence the last part, "Some peace
    In this eternal rust
    But now I'm alone
    Walking through this dust
    Through the ashes of icons"
