lyrics

Wake up!
Don't you see what you're doing?
The fates of many hanging in the balance between what you do and what you say.
That in the end it will all be okay.

There's nobody listening to you, 'cause everything you say isn't true.

Whoa!
You say things are better off this way, but how can that be if you insist that we all vanish and turn back into dust?

There's nobody listening to you, 'cause everything you say isn't true.

You say it's all for the greater good.
Hurting a few, saying it'll fix the world.
What happens when the world disagrees with you?
Turning their heads just to spit back at you.

It doesn't matter what you say if you hurt everyone, 'cause when they've had enough you'll be on the run.
It doesn't matter what you say if you hurt everyone, 'cause when they've had enough you'll be on the...

Run from the past and it'll catch up to you.
Run from the past and it'll catch up to you.
Run from the past and it'll catch up to you.
Run from the past and it'll catch up to you.

Run.

You say it's all for the greater good.
(The past will catch up to you)
You say it's all for the greater good.
(And then you will pay your dues)

Whoa!
You say things are better off this way, but how can that be if you insist that we all vanish and turn back into dust?
Let this world we built crumble and rust without the help from our hands, which could easily rebuild it all again.

You say it's all for the greater good.
Hurting a few, saying it'll fix the world.
What happens when the world disagrees with you?
Turning their heads just to spit back at you.

You say it's all for the greater good.
You say it's all for the greater good.
You say it's all for the greater good.
(The past will catch up to you)
You say it's all for the greater good.
(And then you will pay your dues)
