vote with a bullet lyrics – corrosion of conformity

the number in nations
the god in their hearts
the justice in swine
the devil in god


this long hand that breaks our backs
still casting shadows on all that we see
unjustified… mercy killing is just a feeling
to keep our numbers from being free

prison for praise is not worth thinking
sin is still in and our ballots are shrinking
so unleash the dogs – the only solution
forgive and forget, f*ck no
i’m talking about a revolution

the prophet man’s got a needle in his hand
draws his dreams from your soul – bleeding
minds into sand
the year of the fear has arrived decades too late
and our right to stand and fight is now
solely sealed in fate

(repeat first chorus)

one last chance mission with a vision
‘cos our lives are just cards in their stack
our time is short but theirs is shorter
how much longer can they hold us back

prison for praise – the obvious answer
once had power mad – living disaster
don’t f*ck with me ‘cos i’m on a freedom train
that bears no name – this time
i’m voting with a bullet

this view they once knew made our nooses too tight
this justice in swine
this devil in god

so god bless my soul – i’ve got total control
and the crosshairs lined up dead in my sight

i’m voting with a bullet
