Lyrics
:

Here I stand with the book in my right hand
Every word I say is the truth
Here I am with my hand on my heart
I'm trying to represent me and you
Piled high in front of my eyes
The evidence you cannot ignore
Sick and tired of wasting my life
Sick and tired of wasting my time

Let the judge come into the room
I want him to hear every word said
Let the trial begin with the accusations
I lay at your feet
Your defence is crumbling slowly
You cannot get a witness to stand
What's it like when millions of voices
Stand up and call you a cheat

WHAT KIND OF HELL
WHAT KIND OF HELL AM I LIVING IN
ONLY TIME WILL TELL
WHAT KIND OF HELL
WHAT KIND OF HELL AM I LIVING IN
ONLY TIME WILL TELL

The only ones who care about us
Are the ones who won't step down for the fight
Too long ago we climbed the ladder
And waited for ____  to die
Where are the leaders of the black & white dreams
The promised land that we've never seen
It's all blood,  one third of the world is dying
It's suddenly starting to hit

WHAT KIND OF HELL
WHAT KIND OF HELL AM I LIVING IN
ONLY TIME WILL TELL
WHAT KIND OF HELL
WHAT KIND OF HELL AM I LIVING IN
ONLY TIME WILL TELL

Judgement is coming
Make no mistake
In time, in time, in time
You'll be judged as you have judged yourself

(verse)
Outside ____ funeral
Out on the streets at night
Outside below our window
We only want to turn out the lights
Outside ______________
_____________________
Outside we call the army
And __________

WHAT KIND OF HELL
WHAT KIND OF HELL AM I LIVING IN
ONLY TIME WILL TELL
WHAT KIND OF HELL
WHAT KIND OF HELL AM I LIVING IN
ONLY TIME WILL TELL
