The Beatles — The Haunted - Sweet Relief lyrics

If you find some error in The Haunted - Sweet Relief, please submit your corrections to webmaster.
Contextualize it and justify,
as the passive servility eats you alive.
Like a Japanese girl with a taste for absurdity,
roped up and screaming for more.

In spineless decisions you cling to a lie.
A futile attempt to uphold your claim.
As a new generation of nihilist rage,
get a grip on how to get shit done.

[Chorus:]
We'll get you in the end.
Sweet relief.
I survive trough the blaze of another day,
lower down and hide.
Let me wake in a dream where you come undone -
Sweet relief.

Barter, compile it, package the scam.
Analyse the effects and the overall consequence.
Duping the masses. So fucking what.
You get what you give - I can see it now.

Bring in the puppets, turn on the light.
Round up the gullable sheep.
Deliver the drama. Fake and obscene.
The drug of a nation asleep.

We'll get you in the end.
Sweet relief.

Die please. Stop this. I'm begging you. Cease to breathe.

You are killing everything I love.

We'll get you in the end.
Sweet relief.
As the cane draws a line in the sand of time -
blood covers bone.
In the eye of the dying I can read your thoughts -
Guilt as charged.

Guinea pigs all.
Selfless and blind.
An effortless crime.
No wonder it's all going down.
