A paradeOf tortured soulsMarches byMy bloodshot eyesAs another nightTakes its toll But soonThe sun will riseAnd so must I Yet amid the wailsAnd primal screamsI hear the talesOf the In BetweenWhere NightHas long since endedBut Day has yet to comeDare I dream?
We’re the Disunited Kingdom of DysturbiaA once great nation now a dystopiaWhere the leaders cling to power while the rest of us sufferAnd it won’t be long before we all turn on each other We’re the Disunited Kingdom of DysturbiaA nation run by the state-fed mediaAnd no-one has a clue who to even trust‘Cause of [...]
