Lotus Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Woke before the mornin' sun I found it tucked beneath the hills
I sat and watched it rise, it hit the sky and burst to flames
The lotus flower's got me thinkin' 'bout the way that we live
I've got this feelin' it's gonna stop

Driven by religion, runnin' backwards down a one way road
A course collision, split decision tryin' to save your soul
Manifest destiny is just a fancy word for murder
I've got this feelin' it's gonna stop

A billion faces runnin' round my head
All got opinions but the don't mean shit
Keep droppin' bombs until the whole world's dead
They said it's all been done and it's all been said

They'll turn this message into a pop movement
A fashion statement, call it politics
You can't mark my words they'll put a spin on it
They say it's all been done

Look outside the box my friend
You heart's been dead since who knows when
It seems we've missed the mark, lost all hope and given in
Pack up the suitcase, take that handkerchief and wipe off your chin
The fear that drives you, needs to be stopped

A billion faces runnin' round my head
All got opinions but the don't mean shit
Keep droppin' bombs until the whole world's dead
They said it's all been done and it's all been said

They'll turn a message into a pop movement
A fashion statement, call it politics
You can't mark my words they'll put a spin on it
They say it's all been done

Fell into a daze and found my mind was gone and laid to waste
A battle ground indeed where holy wars have taken place
I saw the sun set, watched it travel down and tear through the ground
The hate the drives us needs to be stopped
