Sleeping with Sirens – Tyrants

Tyrants

[Verse 1]
Get your hands off my neck
I'm trying to breathe
Peel my skin to the bone
Half man and half machine
See the ashes and smoke
We black out the sky
We're born into fire, slaves 'til we die
A mouth filled with worms
A head filled with dirt
We consume and consume
It's ourselves that we hurt
We're destroying the world
Pick the scab 'til it bleeds
We laugh in their face, it's the American dream

[Pre-Chorus]
Let my sins wash over me
I'm guilty by design

[Chorus]
We're all part of the system
We all wanna be blind
We scream in defiance
We poison our minds
In this desert of silence
We'll be buried alive
We bathe in the violence
One soul at a time

[Verse 2]
Torn from inside, a head filled with lies
We ache 'til we break, we see through hollowed eyes
The poison is there, right under the skin
It's not complicated, they won't let us win

[Pre-Chorus]
Let my sins wash over me
I'm guilty by design

[Chorus]
We're all part of the system
We all wanna be blind
We scream in defiance
We poison our minds
In this desert of silence
We'll be buried alive
We bathe in the violence
One soul at a time

[Bridge]
There's blood in the alleys, there's blood in the streets
We walk on the dead, we prey on the weak
This desert of silence, we're barely alive
As we bathe in the violence
We stand on the shoulders of tyrants
Fuck

[Refrain]
Let my sins wash over me
I'm guilty by design
Guilty by, guilty by
Guilty by design

[Chorus]
We're all part of the system
We all wanna be blind
We scream in defiance
We poison our minds
In this desert of silence
We'll be buried alive
We bathe in the violence
One soul at a time

[Outro]
We pray on the dead, we prey on the weak
There's blood in the alleys, there's blood in the streets
We pray on the dead, we prey on the weak
We're guilty by design
