Battered and courageous
All eyes on you
We made you some kind of God of war
On your back awaiting constant salivation
Straight from the snuff film cutting room floor
Shot by shot cry out, ‘I've had enough’
The picture’s not done ‘til you lose a pint of blood

This is what I found in the wake
The message was scratched on the face of his grave
It goes: we will find the silver lining and make this our own
It goes: we will find the silver lining and make this our home

Where'd that pretty smile go?
You put it in a box and left it on the side of the road
Thanks for nothing
You watched the ball drop
Then made a wish on a burnt out star
When'd you lose control?
You woke up one day with swine all over your shore
We committed our army to you
Fearless leader, come see this through

Far from prophetic
No promise came true
We lost control, we lost control
Your name conjures an image of defeat
We lost control, we lost control

This is what I found in the wake
The message was scratched on the face of his grave
It goes: we will find the silver lining and make this our own
It goes: we will find the silver lining and make this our home

We lost control, we lost control, we lost control, we lost control
