So why this carnage in your eyes
Why these visions in my head?
Why this bloodshed in disguise
My love you look like you are dead
I think that something is amiss
You're shaking I am paralysed
I can't believe we've come to this
But then I look into your eyes

CHORUS
Why the carnage in your eyes
Why these visions in my head?
Why the carnage in your eyes
Why this trauma everywhere?

GUITAR SOLO

I don't think it's worth the wait
But you need to get some air
You say you don't believe in Fate
So why do you still look so scared?
I've seen the trauma in your smile
Felt the tremor in your voice
The violence flowing all the while
And now it seems you have no choice

CHORUS

(just bass and vocals)
Why do you
Look at me
What can I do
I cannot see
I'm alarmed
And you're so tired
I'm disarmed
But I'm inspired
(drum roll on last syllable leads into)
