Machine Head

Machine Head - In The Presence Of My Enemies

I never ask myself why injustice befell me

Accepted of the fact, try and live a life of peace

I`m not a violent man, but to those who`d threaten me

My enemy, for my family I`ll show thee

Death I will fight you to

Wrath provoked you cannot bear

Our lives are not your toys

Mercy, not a drop to spare

You of destruction

Of hope`s deconstruction

Kills

Innocence is lost when

The blood of innocents

Spills

I`m not a violent man, again I wish to repeat

But for every human that takes away a child`s innocence

Whether it by molest, or by all wars pointlessness

Killer of life

Corruptor of all that is pure

I want your nose to break

Shattered under clenched fist

Smash face to concrete

Taste the asphalt`s gentle kiss

You of destruction

Of hope`s deconstruction

Kills

Innocence is lost when

The blood of innocents

Spills

To those that are to blame

Destroyers of every dream

Breaking of hatred`s wings

Mars` phoenix begins fading

To those that monger war

Claiming that this is to even scores

This mantra I invoke

No longer this fear will

I choke

There`s no peace for the one who can`t know peace

Your every breath it only lives to take

Someday the earth you will descend

Not a regret I`ll harbor in

Tearless my eyes

Flowerless my hands

And that day when your moment is fleeting

That thought keeps my heart beating

When they lower your casket down

Bitter the sweet within my mouth

Ender of life

Corruptor of all that`s pure

On your grave

I will stand
