"Now Is The Time (Ravenous)" as written by and Timothy Michael/johnson Brown....
Appetites reach all time highs
No ones seems to care who dies
Prey on every little thing in sight
To kill or be killed state of mind
Anything to stay alive
Never ever show your terrified

It's a common casualty
To trust in what you see
Saints and scholars
Don't even bother
The bullet in the blood
Came from those you love
Friendly fires
Death by a liar

Dumb, deaf and blind
(Dumb, deaf and blind)
Fall back in line
(Fall back in line)

Now is the time
To open your eyes
You need it, you want it,
You did it, you got it
So act like you own it this time
The coma of lies
Comfort your mind
Your feeding the fire
And bleeding desire
It's down to the wire this time

Focus now on how to gain
Loyalty from enemies
Waiting patiently for when to strike

The bullet in the blood
Came from those you trust
Friendly fires
Death by a liar

Dumb, deaf and blind
(Dumb, deaf and blind)
Fall back in line
(Fall back in line)

Now is the time
To open your eyes
You need it, you want it,
You did it, you got it
So act like you own it this time
The coma of lies
Comfort your mind
Your feeding the fire
And bleeding desire
It's down to the wire this time

These ravenous bastards always get what they're after
These ravenous bastards always get what they're after
These ravenous bastards always get what they're after
These ravenous bastards

Them vultures swarm in circles like a storm
The carnivores rip into the core
For more and more and more
They rip into the core

Now is the time
To open your eyes
You need it, you want it,
You did it, you got it
So act like you own it this time
The coma of lies
Comfort your mind
Your feeding the fire
And bleeding desire
It's down to the wire this time

    General CommentWrong song... Here's the right damn lyrics...


    Now is the time (ravenous)

    Appetites reach all time highs
    No ones seems to care who dies
    Prey every little thing in sight

    Decay will be killed state of mind
    Anything to stay alive
    Never ever show your terrified

    It’s a common casualty
    To trust in what you see
    Saints and Scholars
    Don’t even bother
    The bullet in the blood
    Came from those you love
    Friendly fires
    Death by a liar

    Dumb, Deaf and Blind
    Fall back in line

    Now is the time
    To open your eyes
    You need it, you want,
    You did it, You got it
    So act you own it this time
    The coma of lies
    Comfort your mind
    Your feeding the fire
    And bleeding desire
    It’s down to the wire this time

    Focus now on how to gain
    Loyalty from enemies
    Waiting patiently for when to strike
    The bullet in the blood
    Came from those you trust
    Friendly Fires
    Death by a liar

    Dumb, deaf and blind
    Fall back in line

    Now is the time
    To open your eyes
    You need it, you want it,
    You did it, you got it
    So act you own it this time
    The coma of lies
    Comfort your mind
    Your feeding the fire
    And bleeding desire
    It’s down to the wire this time

    Those ravenous bastards always get what their after
    Those ravenous bastards always get what their after
    Those ravenous bastards always get what their after
    Those ravenous bastards

    The virtuous ones always circle like a storm
    The carnivores always rip into the cold
    For merry merry more
    They rip into the cold

    Now is the time
    To open your eyes
    You need it, you want it,
    You did it, you got it
    So act you own it this time
    The coma of lies
    Comfort your mind
    Your feeding the fire
    And bleeding desire
    It’s down to the wire this time

    General CommentThe word "virtuous" might be wrong. Also the "merry merry part". I had a hard time understanding that part. And sorry for the first wrong song. I can't figure out how to delete it. But I think this about war and he's talking to our political leaders, and how they have betrayed us all. How they've believed all the lies they have been told, and those were enough to go to war. They've have been in cohorts with our enemies, Bin Laden, hussein, got what they wanted like Oil, and used that as a fuel for the war. He could also be talking to our soldiers who have to do what they are told, telling them to wake up and see what our Capital hill has done to make us "Dumb Deaf and Blind" with lies, and will lead to our own destruction. Just my opinion though.

    General CommentIm pretty sure the "virtuous" part is wrong. Pretty sure he says "the vultures swarm, in circles like a storm." and I'm almost positive he says "the carnivores rip into the core, for more and more and more." And one more thing, pretty sure he says "tone deaf and blind."

    Song MeaningIt's not about war, they said during a performance it is about being who you are and not what the music industry wants you to be.
    Now is the time
    To open your eyes
    You need it, you want it,
    You did it, you got it
    So act you own it this time <---- key phrase

    General CommentAh, there's a few grammatical mistakes in this. The following lines:

    "Never ever show your terrified"
    "Your feeding the fire"
    "Those ravenous bastards always get what their after"


    SHOULD be:

    "Never ever show you're terrified"
    "You're feeding the fire"
    "Those ravenous bastards always get what they're after"


    This is one of my favorite songs, too. c:

    General CommentFix Me

    It’s taken a lifetime to lose my way
    A lifetime of yesterdays
    All the wasted time on my hands
    Turns to sand
    And fades in the wind

    Crossing lines
    Small crimes
    Taking back what is mine

    I’m fine in the fire
    I feed on the friction
    I’m right where I should be
    Don’t try and fix me
    I’m fine in the fire
    I feed on the friction
    I’m right where I should be
    Don’t try and fix me

    So lost for so long
    To find to my way
    I failed to follow
    I’m out of place

    Crossing Lines
    Small crimes
    Taking back what is mine

    I’m fine in the fire
    I feed on the friction
    I’m right where I should be
    Don’t try and fix me
    I’m fine in the fire
    I feed on the friction
    I’m right where I should be
    Don’t try and fix me

    I’m fine in the fire
    I feed on the friction
    I’m right I should be
    Don’t try and fix me
    I’m fine in the fire
    I feed on the friction
    I’m right where I should be
    Don’t try and fix me
    I’m fine in the fire
    I feed on the friction
    I’m right where I should be
    Don’t try and fix me
