There is a sniper waiting for me just across the street
His eyes are full of malice and his mouth full of deceit
His ammunition’s manufactured in a factory
Deep beyond the Ural mountains close to the White Sea

And there is a bomb rigged to explode on the window pane
Push my lungs back through my spine and end this killing game
For them I’m just a prey to hunt down slaughter and consume
Or vanish in a few small seconds leave a thin black plume

And I am here still waiting

There is a trigger on my cell phone that sets off a flare
That tells a bomber in the sky it’s time for my nightmare
My skin will melt like rubber clothing in the napalm heat
And leave the crows to feed on well done marrow bone and meat

And there is a camera in my eye recording all I do
It sends the info to a secret enemy HQ
They need no reason whatsoever just a single call
To send me off to faeryland where luneys go St Paul

And I am here still waiting

They sent me off to Shivering Islands just some time ago
To collect some magic items with a madness bow
I hailed the prince called Sheogorath but he sent me back home
Unable to reload the game I can’t retrieve my tome

The sniper’s knocking on my door disguised as my best friend
Wearing skin to block the sun I cannot defend
Myself against their dirty tricks I have to hide my soul
Deep inside one single brain cell just to keep control

And I am here still waiting
And I am here still waiting

Just a little ray of sunshine
Shimmers through the cloudy sky
Just a little angel singing
Sings so softly like a child
And you got that rhythm in your heart

Just a little village down there
Down below the deep green wood
Just a little river running
And the people that you would
Save if you could stop and press restart

Do all that you never dreamed of doing
Caring is the issue not the knowing

Just a little farmer working
Worries running cross his face
Just a little thought you’re sharing
With yourself cos there’s no place
Where you can share the pieces of your heart

Just a little chopper roaring
Machine guns rattling ‘tween the trees
Just a little soldier laughing
The people here cry iron tears
So they won’t blame you when you do your part

Do all that you never dreamed of doing
Caring is the issue not the knowing

Just a little girl come running
Screaming and you open fire
Just the little houses burning
Smoke that rises to the sky
Darkness deep as all that’s in your heart

Just a little game is over
Gun in hand and boots back on
Just a little memory fading
Into something you call gone
Maybe it was just a work of art

Do all that you never dreamed of doing
Caring is the issue not the knowing

I can see you
I can feel you
I can breathe you mortalkind

In the water
In the deep well
I still watch you mortalkind

I was hanging
From the world tree
From the mighty Yggdrasil

I was given
I was given
All the knowledge of the runes

And I told you
I fortold you
There will come a day of woe

When the world ends
And the day breaks
And a woman and a man

Will be walking
Will be talking
And will try to understand

And I see life
Neverending
And I walk between the worlds

There be many
Called the elder
But you know my name and word

I can see you
I can feel you
I can breathe you mortalkind

You looked for Paradise
In the ruins of Mogadishu
And in the riot and red flag waving
And the streets that filled with blood

You looked for Paradise
In the scriptures of the Marx
And in the riot and red flag waving
And the streets that filled with blood

And we pay the price for your chasing of wind
We are Generation Identitaire

You looked for Paradise
In the bombs and genocide
And in the riot and red flag waving
And the streets that filled with blood

And we pay the price for your chasing of wind
We are Generation Identitaire

You looked for Paradise
In oppression of free speech
And in the riot and red flag waving
And the streets that filled with blood

And we pay the price for your chasing of wind
We are Generation Identitaire

We look for common sense
In a world destroyed by lies
We are the new river running
Its water old and free

But we pay the price for your chasing of wind
We are Generation Identitaire
We are Generation Identitaire
We are Generation Identitaire

Of course you’re angry child
They beat you down every second you try to breathe
Choke you with hypocrisy, treason and guilt
Steal your time and life for you still have a soul
Cover your eyes so you see what you’re told

Of course you’re angry child
They tell you be well mannered when they’re so bad
They are full of bullshit got halos instead
Everyone knows they don’t care about you
They won’t let you live cause the moment they do

You are gonna shut them up
You are gonna shut them up

Of course you’re angry child
They say you be ashamed when they are cowards and wrong
A slave collar shows you just where you belong
Patriot child, your voice is a crime
You won’t pretend that subjection is fine

Of course you’re angry child
They sell your every pound of flesh for one glass of wine
They can beat you deaf child, but never beat you blind
You will not give in to the powerful and rich
Deep state, fake news, the pimp and the bitch

You are gonna shut them up
You are gonna shut them up

You took the pill
At Charlottesville
But who did pay
For Lefty’s guns at Mandalay?
Yeah who will pay?

Of course you’re angry child
You pick up your guitar and go right out in the street
Singing your guts out ”retreat, hell retreat”
They try to kill you we’ve seen this before
Murderers calling their murders a chore
Victims accused of oppressing the poor
Innocent victims of their holy war

You are gonna shut them up
You are gonna shut them up
You are gonna shut them up
You are gonna shut them up
