Pride Before The Fall
By Dan Krochmal

Another day, another night,
Another man goes to take life,
Goes upstairs with a gun,
Cocks, aims, and then,

Bang. And then everything changes,
So many sons and daughters left ageless,
And now I'm looking at the pages,
Wondering how long before I recognise some faces.

Heaven's opening its doors,
As victims march in by the score,
This is not a holy war,
It's the pride before the fall.

The only thing we know for sure:
The current way can't work anymore,
But every time it gets brought up,
Someone yells, "Hey you can't do that"

How're we meant to have a conversation?
Nobody's trying to take away your freedom,
But people keep dying in the street,
Every single damn day that we can't just agree.

(Chorus)

Something's got to give,
'Cause we're running out of time before we live,
In a place where fear is all we're given,
And nobody stops to listen.

Something's got to give,
'Cause we're running out of time before we live,
In a place where hate is all we're given,
And nobody stops to listen.

(Chorus)

And empathy is all we've got,
To give ourselves a better shot.
'Cause this is not a holy war,
It's the pride before the fall.
