The World Is Hours Away Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Wait
1. Our World (3:55)
No hope's left in a fallen world broken by democracy
Love & Hatred,Both ways of life suffer in misery
Blind men lead the young to follow into a one way society
Where injustice prevails,Wars demolish & human race obsolete
Poison products,Wars creation, why do-We Kill?
There's no solution for helping the poor,Why do-We Hate ?
Homeless cry out for help,What's given?-False Hope!!
Rich get richer,Poor get poorer,Nobody's helping-Who's Blamed?!
When will life ever change for us?
When will the hatred end?
Peace,Love & Unforseen Paradise
Why can't the different blend
Corruption bleeds a system of agony
Our lives destroyed,Our only world
Man kills,he hates the chosen ones
Who bring the prophets world
Our world's destroyed-for human need
But who's to blame?
Look in the mirror,tell me what you see
Our world's destroyed-For You & Me!
2. Listen (3:30)
Why America's always torn in two
The real men all laugh at you
Because you are what you want to be
Through blind eyes,they'll never see
It's no use-They don't care
What I say-Goes through their ears
Look at the truth-You may see
Deep in my heart-It's really me

Chorus:
Listen to me
Someday you'll see
Please listen to me
We wanna live free

Constitution states that we're all free
To do as we want,not as you see
Shorter hair,Collar,Tie & Slacks
Screw you all,Stay off our backs!!!

Chorus:
Listen to me
Someday you'll see
Please listen to me
We wanna live free!!!
3. Drunken State (3:56)
Sitting here drowning my sorrows
Loathing another worthless tomorrow
Thought it would just go away
But it's here to haunt me each drunken day
Thought it would solve everything
Thought it would pass
But how long will this drunken state last?
Clouded my brain,mess with my head
Waste of life,I'd be better off dead

Chorus:
Look what you fell into-Another drunken state
Try to pull yourself out of-That drunken state
It's not hard to get out of-Your drunken state
Drunken state
Thought you were right?But proved you wrong
You ignore the facts,You're still stoned
Searching for truth,But all you find are lies
The problem is still here,afteryour head clears

Thought it would solve everyting
Thought it would pass
But how long will this drunken state last?
Clouded my brain,mess with my head
Waste of life,I'd be better off dead

Chorus:
Look what you fell into-Another drunken state
Try to pull yourself out of-That drunken state
It's not hard to get out of-Your drunken state
Drunken state
Thought you were right?,But proved you wrong
You ignore the facts,You're still stoned
Searching for the truth,But all you find are lies
The problem is still here,After your head clears
4. Marching Off To War (4:38)
You were called upon to fight for your land caring for your country by giving a helping hand
The fear of dying is nowhere near
Fighting for your life is why you are here
The power & the glory will strengthen your mind
Leaving all the past & memories behind
Now you're awaiting the general's command
Leading you strong to take a stand

Chorus:
Marching-Off to war
Fighting for freedom is what it's for
Marching-Off to war
What's this shit you're dying for?!

You killed for freedom,tears shed in your eyes
Is this the solution? Taking people's lives?
All this bloodshed over money & greed
Caused by our government's ignorant way to succeed
5. Living In Emptiness (4:44)
See the hate you caused yourself
The ones you loved put back in hell
You lie,you cheat,you steal for trade
Mistakes you wish you hadn't made
I hate the pain you've dropped within
I'm torn apart,I cannot live
The synthetic joy of pathetic needs
A life crumbled by your filth & greed
You've seen the road to which it leads
Alone in four walls is all you see
Instead you thought all for yourself
Without feeling wrong within itself
Can't take no more,I lose,You gain
In my world I live,I'm scarred by pain
When will it stop,your thoughtlessness??
Your life is lived in emptiness

Chorus:
You have lived in emptiness

I live alone with my hate
Aside from confused dismay
Unafraid to lose my pride
I clench my fists & cry
Betrayed I feel inside
A chance you have so you may learn
Again a chance you may conform
I doubt you'll change your sinful world
Again the family's overturned
Why not return to the kid I knew?
A boyish charm you've not outgrown
Instead a devil from within the saint
Why not wake up & play it straight?

Chorus:
You have lived in emptiness
6. You Decide (4:12)
You've been told for so long
What's right & what's wrong
Think for yourself
The decision is all up to you
I know I've been there
I made my choice
I'm here to tell you
In my own voice
People will come & people will go
Only the true will stay
The scene could die & you'll know why
Now who's left to blame
Take a stand,don't let it fall
You're the one in charge
It's up to you to make it last
And help the scene survive
You decide-What's right-For you
You decide-With your mind
I know why/It hasn't changed me
I know why-Cause I'm true
My decision,I know it's right
I hope it will-Help you
Quick change is not the answer
Your change is to be true
Don't listen to the others
Just be-Be you
7. Struggle With Society (3:23)
You got no control of it,Society will never change for you
Victims of the struggle,within our world
Voted politicians strike at each other's blinded will
When will it get through to them? Hibernation stop right now!

Chorus:
Leaders cherish
Millions perish
Struggle with society
Lying in pain
Cries in vain
Struggle with society
Broken promises
False compromise
Struggle with society
World lies still
Massive kill
Struggle with society
Struggle with society

Press stays quiet,Nothing to say
Tell me what George did today
No one plans a brightened future
We all die anyway
Who will press the button first?
No one knows,Keep death at bay
One fine day you wake up dead
R.I.P. is all they'll say
What are you to do,save your only life?
Vote in another killer to throw your life away
It won't really matter,Society really doesn't care
If it was a problem,Our troubles would be thrown away!!!

Chorus:

Leaders cherish
Millions perish
Struggle with society
Lying in pain
Cries in vain
Struggle with society
Broken promises
False compromise
Struggle with society
World lies still
Massive kill
Struggle with society

Chorus Repeats
8. Behind The Mask (3:32)
What am I? A man unjust
Who keeps pretending he's someone else
Forgotten victim of manhood dreams
Ignorant acts that no one needs
Embarassed to be yourself
Truth hardly shows without a trace!
Of your blinded thoughtlessness
Why not bare your true face?
He cries-Broken-Victim-Of life's game
No one hears his deafening screams
Pride breaks the hurt for me it seems
I won't be who I really can
No one sees or understands
He hides behind his mask
Down the one way path to obscurity
You drown yourself with false identity
Adopted feeling without succeed
A true inner self is what you need
Why hide your face from reality?
The mask you wear promotes the fallacy
Don't be afraid of what you might be
It makes no difference,Why can't you see?
Hiding behind the mask
Hoping that no one can see
Hoping that no one will know
9. Open Your Eyes (3:52)
Why can't you see what to believe?
Instead you follow a heartless scene
Freedom rings from love not hate
A country divided,inhuman race
A man who fights for his color's sake
A war unwon,No one will take
Whether black & white,blue or green
A man's a man & color's only skin deep
We can all love what we want
No one can make the choices who
Freedom's a will,Not just a way
What you make is up to you

Chorus:

Why can't we all live as one?
Racial wars are never won
What's the difference between you & me?
Open up your eyes & see...That...It's...Nothing

Head & skin are alike inside
Follow yourself,not other's self pride
Be what you are & nothing else
And in time only it will tell
Prejudice is just a stupid fad
The ignorant childen shouldn't have
Just go away & take your shit
Cause your ignorance feeds their prejudice

Chorus:

Why can't we all live as one?
Racial wars are never won
What's the difference between you & me?
Open up your eyes & see!?!
10. American Way (5:13)
T.V. broadcast it every day
Violence is the American way
Doesn't it start to make you ill?
Watching constant blood spill
Stabbing,killing,murder,rape
Prime time television,it's all the same
Who's killing who & who's screwing who
It doesn't matter,you can watch it in the news
(Repeat First Verse)

Chorus:

Violence-The never-ending cycle
Violence-The American way
Violence-The never-ending cycle
Violence-The American way
Killing-Stabbed in the back now
Violence-The American way
Violence-never-ending cycle
Violence-The American way

T.V. cop shows is the way
How we live each & every day
Killing each other just for fun
Can't stop now,The damage is done
You read it in the paper every day
No matter how hard you wish
It will never fade
Violence is here to stay
Violence is the American Way!!!
