lyrics

the cavalry is here
but they have already surrendered
we turn against ourselves
divided by defeat
and all that we have built
it will not be remembered
we will fall together now
the wretched and the weak

at first we were too proud
too slow to notice
they covered up the sun
still we waited for the dawn
and I still hear your voice
like a swarm of locusts
telling us to compromise
'till everything was gone

and turning back the clock
it's like bargaining with cancer
blinded by belief
we took the devil at his word
don't bother with your prayers
can't you see they have been answered
every now and then we catch the hell that we deserve
yes every now and then we catch the hell that we deserve
