1. Genesis Mercury and the Architects 3:48
Lyrics

If you just stare
Into the water
Yeah I guess
You’ll never drown
And if you’re scared
To die a martyr
Than I guess
Just back out now
But when the tide
Rolls into town
I bet you’ll wish
You learned to swim
And when their bullets
Strike you down
I bet you’ll wish
You learned to live

I feed the wild fire
And dance with vampires
To stay awake
You built an empire
Inside some barbed wire
And died a slave

Take a glance
Between the blinds
See through windows
Of your mind
Take a chance
And roll the dice
If you’re not here
To just survive
And if the window breaks
Will you escape
Or hide inside your head?
And if the dice you played
Don’t land your way
Would you dare
To roll again?

I feed the wild fire
And dance with vampires
To stay awake
You built an empire
Inside some barbed wire
And died a slave

Pull back the veil
To no avail
Too big to fail
This world’s a business
You’re so different
Like a Muslim, a Jew
And Christian
Inside the system
Divide and conquer
They can turn a great man
To a monster
Guard the borders
Like the lines exist
I guess a New World Order Wasn’t just a myth
Got something to say?
Better plead the fifth
Before we play
Know the game was rigged
Fuck the fame
I wanna live for something real
Maybe one day you’ll hear this And break the wheel
My sun
If the stars align
And the time ever comes
When they kill me off
Before the job is done
Here’s the blueprint
Go make some music
And go tell the world
That the world is one

I feed the wild fire
And dance with vampires
To stay awake
You built an empire
Inside some barbed wire
And died a slave
