A Day of Reckoning Lyrics

9. A Day of Reckoning (4:00)
Track rating :  95 / 100       Votes :  2       [ ]
First there came a mass - a brilliant lights of flash
All across the president's skies as he sits and laughs
He preaches non-conformity
I don't think they see they live for him and what he believes
-- A wrath of misery

Left to die alone in their living past
As he takes their lives away to never get it back
No more need for society
All the lives he took - the fault of the law and majority
-- Rules in an open book

Leave me alone! Don't take it away:
A place where I know they're destined to take away

Now the lives they lead are left to broken dreams
Just when they thought they had it all - life's not what it seems
He preaches non-conformity
I don't think they see they live for him and what he believes
-- A life of misery

Leave me alone! Don't take it away:
A place where I know they're destined to take away

Don't take away... society ~day by day!~
There'll come a day ~day by day!~
You're gonna pay ~day by day!~
A day of reckoning! ~Day by day!~ A day of reckoning!
You're all gonna pay, ha-ha-ha! You can't get away
