I've Seen it All Before



I've seen it all before,
the terror in their eyes,
the terror in the skies,
coming down like a hurricane,
breathing flame and fear,
over all the sinners of no sins.

I've seen it all before,
heard all of it before,
heard the tales and the rhymes,
of all the evil in the world,
and all of it just lies,
spoken to inset fear
into all our hearts,
so we would go and
breath flame and fear,
over all the sinners of no sins.

All the sinners of no sins.
