lyrics

Mez says that the kids are on the street,
But not the kind you would like to meet.
They are wandering, their hearts are hardening
Like the ‘souls’ of their feet.

Hysteria rises with the heat,
Do you really think we can compete?
With self-regulating, even your counter-hating
cannot make the world complete.

So let’s smother this Band of Brothers
Before they find another thing that they think brings
Salvation to the nations;
Only reputations mean anything.

Now they’re looking for someone to blame
But life is just a game.
They don’t count the cost, of the lives lost,
So they deal in numbers - not names.

So let’s smother this Band of Brothers
Before they find another thing that they think brings
Salvation to the nations;
Only reputations mean anything.

But we’re all happy just to sit by,
Ignore it all and close our eyes
Which makes us all accomplices to this lie.

They say that money's all you need -
As if there's an end to their greed.
They claim to have no aim,
But they don't know no good deeds.

Where will they put their trust?
When it all turns to dust.
For I know our end
Is perfectly just.

So let’s smother this Band of Brothers
Before they find another thing that they think brings
Salvation to the nations;
Only reputations mean anything.

The solution, is no institution,
It’s revolution of the heart.
People are changing, people are ranging
From bad to amazing, in whole not just
in part.
