Oh, there goes the neighbourhood The only thing I truly understood Relegated to the claws of dolls and thugs The pillaging of paradise A new monetary device Release the soul, increase the price And watch the light fade from our eyes You could choose to just stand by Celebrate the end at the scene of the crime We'll be insects fighting giants, like David and Goliath A battle we can't hope to win We're ushering the fallout in Now the jesters take the throne The kings and queens aren't laughing anymore They hang on bated breath to see what happens next A parody of poetry Recycled mob mentality A hollow host, an empty beat The same old record spinning on repeat You could choose to just stand by Celebrate the end at the scene of the crime We'll be insects fighting giants, like David and Goliath A battle we can't hope to win We're ushering the fallout in We're fighting for our lives They're fighting for a price And even if we fail We'll have them know we're not for sale With the depth of a puddle And the force of a typhoon We watch helplessly as it's all consumed And still you choose to just stand by Celebrate the end at the scene of the crime We'll be insects fighting giants, like David and Goliath A battle no one ever wins We're dust in a nuclear wind

Change ain't always for the best The best things always change If there's one thing I've learned in this life "The good never stay the same" I've seen entire forests Devoured by this flame What a fool I was to think it wouldn't burn me When your bones are dust And this bridge is ash Will you find the nerve To relinquish the past? When all of your excuses Prove to be useless What will you decide; Evolve or die? Evolve or die? Evolve or die? Evolve or die? Part of me feels like we're worlds away The other part feels like it was just yesterday We sat around and plotted Our masterful escape I've learned that nothing comes to those who wait When your bones are dust And this bridge is ash Will you find the nerve To relinquish the past? When all of your excuses Prove to be useless What will you decide; Evolve or die? Evolve or die? Evolve or die? Evolve or die? Please tell me when We became strangers in familiar skin? The levees are paper thin The flood waters are rising When your bones are dust And this bridge is ash Will you find the nerve To relinquish the past? When all of your excuses Prove to be useless What will you decide; Evolve or die? Evolve or die? Evolve or die? Evolve or die? Evolve or die!

This town is hell on the eyes This town is covered in ice This town won't be my demise There's no saving grace and it's no paradise Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em Murder Capital? Not our problem! Asked to comment all that I'd have to say: "Welcome to Winnipeg" Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em Murder Capital? Not our problem! Asked to comment all that I'd have to say: "Welcome to Winnipeg" This town's a permanent stain This town is the continent's drain This town's a shame to the map And to this town I will never come back! Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em Murder Capital? Not our problem! Asked to comment all that I'd have to say: "Welcome to Winnipeg" Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em Murder Capital? Not our problem! Asked to comment all that I'd have to say: "Welcome to Winnipeg" This city's been defeated, the continent's heart is no longer beating This city's been defeated, the continent's heart is no longer beating This city's been defeated, the continent's heart is no longer beating This city's been defeated, the continent's heart is no longer beating Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em Murder Capital? Not our problem! Asked to comment all that I'd have to say: "Welcome to Winnipeg" Crooks and robbers with no one to stop 'em Murder Capital? Not our problem! Asked to comment all that I'd have to say: "Welcome to Winnipeg"

I'm losing ground I'm losing sight of everything I'd thought I'd found in you And all the things I thought I knew were just there To bend the truth, to make it seem Like you're a decent human being The cowards always throw up The best smoke screen In brightest day, in blackest night You swore an oath, now make it right When did your honour commit suicide? You were my hero in the day You chose to throw it all away (Okay) In lieu of something safe Our young eyes carved our fathers from blocks of brass Time proved their skeletons more akin to glass This illusion is hollow and I will not follow your footsteps of the cliff I'll just bury my head in the sand at the edge of it In brightest day, in blackest night You swore an oath, now make it right When did your honour commit suicide? You were my hero in the day You chose to throw it all away (Okay) In lieu of something safe A beast asleep deep in my veins How much longer 'til it awakes? And when we're finally face to face, Will all my courage melt away?
