12 Stones - Memphis Lyrics




We all pretend that the world's not changing
We all believe we deserve much more
But deep inside there's no denying
The rising tides have reached our shores

Get in line and set the outcome
Feed the rich and rob the poor
Tell myself that it's not worth fighting
When will we wake up?

Why can't we see there's more to life than misery?
How can we fly when we clip our own wings?
How can we drown out all the sounds of hate,
When everybody screams, "What has this world done for me?"

We close our eyes as the kids are dying
We pull the shades and lock the doors
We all complain as we sit in silence
We cheat the game while keeping score

Get in line and set the outcome
Feed the rich and rob the poor
Tell myself that it's not worth fighting
When will we wake up?

Why can't we see there's more to life than misery?
How can we fly when we clip our own wings?
How can we drown out all the sounds of hate,
When everybody screams, "What has this world done for me?"

Why can't we see there's more to life than misery?
How can we fly when we clip our own wings?
How can we drown out all the sounds of hate,
When everybody screams, "What has this world done for me?"

  1. Crimson_Wolf

    I listened to them when they dropped their first album and I’m disappointed in this one. I don’t feel the same emotion and the vocals sounds worse from him. And I hear the same rhythm. No unique songs that stand out tbh.

    nu metal?

    We all pretend that the world's not changing
    We all believe we deserve much more
    But deep inside there's no denying
    The rising tides have reached our shores

    Get in line and set the outcome
    Feed the rich and rob the poor
    Tell myself that it's not worth fighting
    When will we wake up?

    Why can't we see there's more to life than misery?
    How can we fly when we clip our own wings?
    How can we drown out all the sounds of hate,
    When everybody screams, "What has this world done for me?"

    We close our eyes as the kids are dying
    We pull the shades and lock the doors
    We all complain as we sit in silence
    We cheat the game while keeping score

    Get in line and set the outcome
    Feed the rich and rob the poor
    Tell myself that it's not worth fighting
    When will we wake up?

    Why can't we see there's more to life than misery?
    How can we fly when we clip our own wings?
    How can we drown out all the sounds of hate,
    When everybody screams, "What has this world done for me?"

    Why can't we see there's more to life than misery?
    How can we fly when we clip our own wings?
    How can we drown out all the sounds of hate,
    When everybody screams, "What has this world done for me?"
