lyrics

I heard the fascists sing
Under cover of night they stormed the gates
And now they fill the days with rage

A song of us and them
A song of fear for the modern age
A tale of freedom as a vengeful god

Just wait, it’s coming soon
Just wait, it’s coming around the bend
Our future dressed in gold and ruin from the lives they pulled apart

I heard the fascists sing
I heard their song on the radio
And now they fill the skies with rage

A song of suffering
A song of fear for a tired age
A tale of freedom as a angry god

Just wait, it’s coming soon
Just wait, it’s coming around the bend
Our future dressed in gold and ruin from the lives they pull apart

Just wait, it’s coming soon
Just wait, it’s coming around the bend
Our future dressed in gold and ruin from the lies they dress as art

Oh you know
These cycles come and go from time to time
Oh you know
It’s hard to pin a movement to a crime
But you know
It’s a nuclear age and a tired one at that
Oh, you know

I heard the fascists sing
Under cover of truth they stormed the gates
And now they fill the void with rage

A song of us and them
A song of fear for a leaden age
A tale of freedom as an empty god

Just wait, it’s coming soon
Just wait, it’s coming around the bend
Our future dressed in gold and ruin from the lives they pull apart

Just wait, it’s coming soon
Just wait, it’s coming around the bend
Our future dressed in gold and ruin from the lies they dress as art
