about

Melodic, pop-punk anthem attacking the music industry in a bold move that has surely never been attempted in rock music, right?

lyrics

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
