Lyrics by Abby Ahmad
Detour Music 2013 (ASCAP)


Who do you think you're fooling?
Gave the punch without the line
So rabid for the ruling
Got the talk but not the time

What do you think you're proving?
This ain't once upon a time
These truths you've been abusing
Think you'd better walk the line

What is the purpose?
Where is the heart?
What is your will?
Who could deserve this
Backslide to a cause gone ill?

Where do you think you're moving?
No ascension to define
The leverage you are losing
Talking trash
And walking blind

Once with a purpose
Twice for the kill
Who could deserve this?
Climbing backwards,
They’ll try to unearth us
Just for the thrill

All this mad injustice
It is waking up the dead
They'll try to clock a counter
To the conscience in your head
Go on, try
Battle cry
Cannot lift a lie made out of lead

Once with a purpose
Twice for the kill
Who should deserve this?
Climbing backwards
Your "wisdom" is worthless
An empty space to fill
Now, who's gonna swallow
That bitter pill?
