lyrics

Savages

On a fair day I would see
The human race in its infancy,
And though the norm can be dull and mean,
We're built to be kind,
Conditioned to see,
Darkness and light,
As eternal enemies!

Here we compete in real time,
And watch others compete in our free time;
Where else can you find such divine

Savages!
Savages!
Savages!
As we fight 'em we forget
We become them at best!

In the eyes of love and suffering,
I saw people flowering,
In the name of rock I began to sing,
And as sea levels rose,
So did empathy,
Like never before,
A state of emergency!

Here we get owned in real time,
Pay to be controlled in our free time;
Where else can you find such civilized

Savages!
Keeping the order,
Savages!
Break a new soldier,
Savages!
God's little bomber;
As we fight 'em we forget
We become that we detest!

You n I,
Eye for an eye,
Till the end of time!
As we fight 'em we forget
We become them at best!
