SLOW MOTION STAMPEDE

Slow motion stampede
Squint your mind and you can see
Bodies bolt rear and whirl, turn their backs and fly
Trample the weaker ones on their way that the mightiest might survive
And thereís a herd of human beings
In a slow motion stampede

Our heroes and our leaders steal away with all they can
Right down to the street children this becomes the law of the land
All we really believe in is the evil of man
No one has the faith to lead or invest in a plan
No one wants to be left behind to do whatís right
To teach or heal costs too many troops so follow in the fright

Slow motion stampede, Squint your mind and you can see
Bodies bolt rear and whirl, turn their backs and fly
Trample the weaker ones on their way that the mightiest might survive
And thereís a herd of human beings  In the slow motion stampede

Vultures hover, parasites cling in complicity
Hide the spoils hoard the food, snuff the whistle blowers
Quaking in our armor we can pretend we donít see
Only smell the battles where weíve bet all our money
We leave our own wounded in the dust, to heal costs too much time
But if you donít tend to your wounds, the whole body will surely die

Oh stop the slow motion stampede,  Squint your mind and you can see
Bodies bolt rear and whirl, turn their backs and fly
Trample the humble on their way that the ruthless should survive
No one wants to be left behind to do whatís right
So we silently shut our hearts and minds and follow in the fright
And thereís a herd of human beings in the slow motion stampede
Is it you, Is it me - in the slow motion stampede
With all our soaring progress and high mentality
Just what kind of creatures are we finally

Oh stop the slow motion stampede, there is a slow motion stampede
Trample me I won't make sound, trample me I won't make a sound
Trample me I won't make sound, trample me I won't make a sound
