I am in the night
I am every part of it
The consumption of its beast 
The deck that it deals
The veins that bleed
The caress of its serpent

I am the night
As it writhes and undulates toward dawn
It moans and cries a symphony of anger
I am its agony as it struggles against the light
And dies with the strike of the Sun God.

WARTIME (5:46)

Aww man, so little time, so much to deal with
It seems like everything passes me on, turns me off, messes me up, draws me in
Or just plain bums me out
I crack my head and I try to get over it
I stub my toes and I try to pass under it
My existence is like trying to breath in a big rock
I inhale and it hits me hard
I pay guys with guns to protect me from guys with guns
Some man in a suit is tellin' me to drop dead so i can live happily ever after
There's a guy in the mirror whose always in my face
Aw man, sometimes I think I'm goin' insane

BRIDGE: Don't lose your mind when you're running through a mine field
Don't stop rollin' when you're rolling on the real wheel
You've got a lot to lie right in the eye
And not be afraid to see too clearly
Makes no difference if it's night or day
Well take a look around and say...

CHORUS: It's Wartime (x4)

Yeah you know what I'm talkin' about man
That's exactly what I'm talkin' about
The most important thing is to maintain
Sometimes it's all you can do is just to maintain
Sometimes it's all you can do is go and put a gun to your brain
Sometimes it's all you can do just to maintain
Lookin' out on the streets seein' those screaming rats racin'
Runnin' wild like mindless idiots will run wild
I can't believe the groove they's use
Years, eyes cried, feelings, eyes lie
Talkin' bout changin' but remaining the same
Shameless, meanless, free from blame, man
It's enough to make you wanna do somethin' down right stupid
It's enough to make you wanna do somethin' down right sick


So now you know what the deal is
The time is wartime, wartime is here, it's all around you
You can't close your eyes and make it go away
You be alive right here, right now, right here, here and now
It's who you're dealing with
............ 24 hours a day warpath reality
It's a full time thing, you gotta deal with it
You hang on, you'll be alright
You gotta keep movin' in a positive forward direction
If you let them, they will destroy you
Don't let them - Save yourself
They will not destroy me




(Need Lyrics)



Hello! Say what? Oh yeah? Too much.
What's new? What's up? I here you're messed up, in trouble, in pain
No need to explain - Expectation let you down
See yourself inside - When it gets real do you hide?
Can you face them or do they chase you down
How it could be and how it is - What it should be and what it is
Just another version of the big fat truth
Mind the gap, see the distance - It's the blueprint of resistance
Try to get your point across and it gets knocked back
Confrontation - static
Intimidation - panic
Eye to eye and wall to wall
Can you see what's here? Does it fill you with fear?
Can you keep your distance from what you hate?
Unbelievable, unreal, too shocked to feel
Look out! Mind the gap!

The truth ain't nothin' but the truth

Oh no! You don't say! They don't see it your way?
In the dark everyone was just like you
Now you're mad, uptight because the world's not right
You don't think and it makes you sad
Attitude affected, your way - rejected
Stupidity to get you through
Check out the gap that's all around you
Try to get close, it astounds you
How these people can be so relentlessly cold

Too easy, so blind. Too tough to be kind
Man, you're like some guy in a comic book
Get real, pull your head out
Get up, and get the lead out
Man, I know you can do better than that
Yeah you could stay away from arms length away from life
But it takes strength to get up close and go all the way live
Bridge the gap, take the first step
The more you go, the more you get
Down with the program and on with the show

The truth ain't nothin' but the truth
