Toll Of The Inferno

TOLL OF THE INFERNO
by Macaque Attack

Verse 1
The situation is precarious,
The protagonists hilarious,
If it wasn't for the consequences,
Their dick swinging might bring,
Here's the thing,
Brinkmanship complicates everything,

It's like chess played by fools,
With no rules,
Throwing pawns,
At each other like tools,
Not realising,
They've knocked their own kings on the floor,
No game anymore,
Wipe the board,

Like children who can't get their way,
Not safe to play,
Banging their little fists,
On their desks in immature fits,
I'm gonna do that,
I'm gonna do this,

We're gonna burn you alive,
None will survive,
Nowhere to run or to hide,
We'll annihilate you back,
We can attack,
With our missiles you'll stop in your tracks

Chorus
Is anyone stopping to think,
Of the toll the inferno brings,
When all that's left is ash,
No countries left for Kings
x2

Verse 2
Tiny orange finger,
Starting to linger,
Over a button that's bigger than most,
If not all other things,
Arrows and slings,
On which this one clings,

Tapping out birdsong,
Shouting down all the critics,
Not analytic,
Just bombastic and dumb,
An illiterate bum,
Silver spoon and a thatch finely spun,

It's for our own defence,
Says the one with no sense,
Bending his kin to his will,
Starving his countrymen,
All hysterical when,
In his presence they drill,

The fat little playboy can laugh,
As he targets his wrath,
At an enemy,
Exaggerated to help,
Subjugate all to his needs,
Keep his lifestyle intact,
That's the fact

Chorus
Is anyone stopping to think,
Of the toll the inferno brings,
When all that's left is ash,
No countries left for Kings
x4

Ending
And all that can come from this,
Is hate and fire and death,
Something we should fight,
With every living breath,
We've created too much good,
To see it all destroyed,
By those with no respect,
Who see us all as toys,
x2

"Toll of the Inferno" by Praise Muzak

Burning tables in the back yard
Ash floating like your dumb bard
Fresh kids in the dead leaves
Petting dogs and the dogs' fleas
Eye crust when I wake up
Got meds so I take some
I'll depend on my thinking
to be better in the next life

In the fur
Inferno
It tolls
It rolls


In love with the feeling
That occurs out of nowhere
Send it back to the precinct
Let it never see light or air

Baby dude in the back seat
Doesn't know how the world goes
I hope he never has to stop and peek
Over the rim of the inferno

Grove, for sure
The inferno
it tolls
So you must roll

..you must know..

It's easy to be
in the shape of like you or me
it's dumbing to see
exactly what you want them to see

just be kind

Hello hello
I’m letting go
It’s time to go
It’s time to go

It’s you it’s me
It’s honesty
Believe me
Believe me

Now you won’t have to fan the flame
And you can focus on the pain
Now we can share the blame
The toll of, toll of, toll of the inferno

Now you won’t have to fan the flame
And you can focus on the pain
Now we can’t share a name
The toll of, toll of, toll of the inferno

(Vom Vorton)

records tell of a mighty blaze back in seventy-six
at the place where the local disco fiends got their fix
that place burned, baby burned
but will we ever learn, baby, learn?
only three guys survived
(the composers of “stayin’ alive”)

but what was the toll
(what was the toll)
of the inferno?

in the aftermath news of the fire swept the nation
and the result was improved safety regulations
but just a year later, many divas
were lost to a case of night fever
the only one left alive
was performing “I will survive”

but what was the toll
(what was the toll)
of the inferno?

Can you hear it?
Can you feel the fire burning?
It’s all around you
Ghosts surround you swirling

Toll of the Inferno
Everyone must pay
Toll of the Inferno
Each and every day

Clasp your hands
Get down on your knees and pray
You made your bed
And now you must obey

Toll of the Inferno
Everyone must pay
Toll of the Inferno
Each and every day

How can wind be so cruel
Smell of smoke wafting for miles

Can you stand it?
The flames are out of your control
She's reaped what you had sown
And she left behind a black hole

Toll of the Inferno
Everyone must pay
Toll of the Inferno
Each and every day
