The Warning Lyrics

by Nine Inch Nails

Some say it was a warning
Some say it was a sign
I was standing right there
When it came down from the sky

The way it spoke to us
You felt it from inside
Said it was up to us
Up to us to decide

You've become a virus
Just killing off his host
We've been watching you with all of our eyes
And what you seem to value most

So much potential
Or so we used to say
Your greed, self-importance and your arrogance
You piss it all away

We heard her cry
We've come to intervene
You will change your ways and you will make amends
Or we will wipe this place clean

Your time is tick tick ticking away
Your time is tick tick ticking away
Your time is tick tick ticking away
Your time is tick tick ticking away

Your time is tick tick ticking away
Your time is tick tick ticking away
Ticking away
