Watch the video here
On and on we’ve followed all the dreams we’ve had
But everything seem the same
Is there any way to change the past
So we can do it all again
Every time we seem to find the right way to go about it
It just seems to go the wrong way
Every day we live the same life over and over again
Hoping that we’ll see a better day but it never comes
There are some who think that they know how we should live our lives
But have they ever looked into the mirror
Living high up on a hill spending our hard earned dimes
Do they know that they’ve destroyed the future
Every time they tell us this and promise that it’s all a lie
It is just a game they play at our expense to get high
High enough to keep control and keep us all at bay
This is not a fantasy, it is happening today
It is time for us to regain control and have our say
While we still have the freedom to believe
Stand up and fight, fight for your right, your right to be free
Know inside that it is your destiny
You have a voice, we have a voice let’s all be heard loud and clear
No more whispering in each others ears
Let’s climb that hill and let them know why we are here today
We are taking back that which is ours, this world before doomsday
About the song
Before Doomsday is another track about taking back control of our lives. Yes, I know, ANOTHER ONE? Yeah, sorry not sorry but I see it happening every day to all of us. We are all being manipulated to distrust each other, fear each other and yes, hate each other with every flick of the thumb, swipe of the finger, turn of the dial and change of the channel. We need to regain control of our emotions and stop letting others tell us how to think and feel. This type of fear-mongering and manipulation will lead to that final solution the doomsday clock predicts. There are people in this world who want nothing more than the destruction of anything they don’t agree with and they are playing us all like the fools we are. both sides and each end of the isle all have the same agenda, total control of the human race creating the perfect slave resource that has been groomed to not QUESTION AUTHORITY but we must!
