lyrics

Explosions flash
over and over again,
inside caged screens
that we dream within,
that we dream within.

Mourners mourn,
family, strangers and friends,
while others vow
it won't happen again,
oh it won't happen again.

The barrel has a dark eye,
it hates everything it sees.
The barrel has a dark eye,
who's the enemy?

Images breed stories,
become facts they did not mean,
when fear is the teacher
how quickly we believe,
how quickly we believe.

The hyena is laughing,
the hyena digs the grave,
the hyena comes to feed,
he does not come to save,
he does not come to save.

The barrel has a dark eye,
it hates everything it sees.
The barrel has a dark eye,
who's the enemy?

Someone is alone,
with a loss they can not heal,
it hurts so much
oh, it seems to kill
