So I arrived, naked and cold
A welcomed change from the abeyance of a ghost town catacomb
No need for counsel I appreciate the time I’m not alone
(Why don’t you get my lawyer on the phone)

There were days these child eyes
Would overlook the ugliness and fantasize
I found my heart for the first time and I awakened in me
I left myself to navigate… and oh I felt control
(It appears these sheep have quite an appetite)

Who is the crowd that peers through the cage,
As we perform here upon the stage?

As the boy became a man
In came a calm sophistication I can hardly understand
So lost in ego, didn’t notice when the time had slipped away
(Yeah, Everyone’s got a sob story)

Jesus Christ, was born to die
Leave it to man to levitate his own to idolize
We’re simply sociopaths with no communication baby
I see your angle but we differ from our points of view
(So, what’s your cross to bear)

Who is the crowd that peers through the cage,
As we perform here upon the stage?
Tell me a lie in a beautiful way
I believe in answers
Just not today

Hope my wheels don’t abandon me now, seein’ that I’m out here alone
I’m runnin’ out of fight
And the wind speaks a comforting voice, guiding me to her arms
Mother, I’m alright
It took the birth of sin to snake-rattle the mind
Before a blow to the head by the gavel of time to wake up
Won’t you wake up?
When did the walking apes decide that nuclear war
Was now the only solution for them keeping the score? Just wake up
Can’t you wake up?

(You do know this is just a simulation, don’t you?)
Who is the crowd that peers through the cage,
As we perform here upon the stage?
Tell me a lie in a beautiful way
I believe in answers
Just not today

    Did anyone notice that bitch Hillary Clinton and all of the other crooked

  3. Thomaesthetics says:

    This is such a great song, literally made my day. I’m sick of everyone
    comparing it to older songs and saying it isn’t good. Even if this is the
    absolute worst song off the album it’s still amazing.

  4. Danny Pearce says:

    I just get the feeling that people just want them to practically release
    city of evil again….. This is a great song, stop being so hypercritical.
    “Addendum”, I am aware that people may just not like it, that is fair
    enough. My problem is with people who are comparing it to City of evil in

  5. Levi DeGeneres says:

    metal junkies are have hell of a good time ’cause they are now getting by
    some old school metallica thrash and some contemporary heavy a7x metal

  6. Gabriela Laurent says:

    but looks like the upcoming record is bringing me back to a7x I cant wait

  8. Descafeinado says:

    IGREJA!!! ❤

  9. zInsurge says:

    Not sure if this song in particular lives up to the hype I personally had,
    but if the rest of the album sounds like the bridge for this song, I think
    I’ll be buying this album seven times over.

  10. Gabby Pahinui says:

    war…war never changes

  11. Noble Nitro says:

    Anyone else feel like this song is giving us a message?

  12. DoomPowerMetal says:

    I have much more respect for Synyster as a guitarist now, after hearing
    this. Definitely can’t wait to get my hands on this album.

  13. Nelson Coy says:

    Every A7x album takes a pretty huge change in sound, one of the reasons why
    there is so much love and hate. In this one Matt Shadows vox have really
    taken a different approach, very excited to hear the whole album! Guitars
    were awesome btw :)

  14. Mutant Hurdle6 says:

    This is basically saying to not be the puppets in war controlled by the
    puppet masters aka our political leaders war is nothing but a rich mans
    scam people die for there money

  15. James Osyris says:

    The hand at the end is pushing a button for a nuclear launch. Afterwards,
    we become cavemen again, and start over

  16. Brenno Lima says:

    Are the puppets Hilary Clinton, Vladimir Putin(President of Russia), Xi
    Jinping(China’s president), Angela Merkel(1st minister of Germany) and Kim
    Jong-un(leader of Rep. Dem. of Corea)?
