For the World to See

lyrics

Behind this mask of desolation
Building a fortress
On this dead and barren ground
Drowned in a sea of lamentation
Conceal the damage I am safe and sound

It grips his mind just like a phantom
Without a sense of caring,
Bites the hand that feeds
The pressure’s waiting to be ransomed
Clearing the mind of agitation and despair

(Clean)For the world, for all the world
For all the world, the world to see
For what it’s worth, the end is near

So here I go
Welcome to my insanity
Born to live and let die
As your kingdom is burning down
Wanted Dead or Alive

Unleash the fury
Turn back the hands of time
Unleash the fury
No coming out alive

Seven days of madness
Come in and walk with me
Seven ways of damage
Come clean and you will see

See what might have been
Now see what I’ve become
Hear the silent screams
Now see what I’ve become

It grips his mind just like a phantom
The pressure’s waiting to be ransomed

So here I go!
Welcome to my insanity
Born to live and let die
As your kingdom is burning down
Wanted Dead or Alive
