Paper Tiger Lyrics

1. Paper Tiger (5:13)
Track rating :  96 / 100       Votes :  5       [ ]
Fake tears in the aisles
Lies, fear and denial
Glass cages and rivals
False threats of reprisal
One more rally cause and off we go
We've got 'em primed and ready to explode
The narcissist machinery, forging a self-made victims' new society
This world is growing more demented by the day
We let in fear along the way
Now for political advancement we've co-opted pain
Beware snakes in the dark; don't set them free

One more life, for the glory to bear Your name
The honor to share that cup of shame, we've burned it away
On we go, with our drama flags unfurled
While they die in chains around the world, and we dance on anyway

Selling false persecution, rage and de.evolution
Martyr complex we're feeding; paranoia we're breeding
Inventing problems for all to see
Caught in the cycle, self-fulfilling prophecy
We're living lives fit for a king
And most or us have never known real suffering
So join the pageant, fake the hurt, take up the cause
Lay in the paper tiger's jaws
Walk the stage now, take a bow and soak in the applause
Beware snakes in the dark; we set them free

One more life...

Fear and paranoia bring a false sense of entitlement
Pretend we‘re persecuted, love the sound or our own voice
Media fearmongering is just a paper tiger
Because don't you know that misery is oftentimes a choice?
Caught up in our drama, we pretend that we have problems
While across the world our brothers are beheaded in the streets
Malcontents and dissonance uncover our indifference
Wolf's cry obsolete

One more life, for the glory to bear Your name
The honor to share that cup of shame. we've burned it away
On we go, with our drama flags unfurled
While they die in chains around the world, and we dance on anyway
Burn the tiger down today
