Big words, little man
Undermine, don't understand
Conqueror divides the land
Soft boy, tiny hands
You succeed and we are damned.

Schoolyard bully, speaking his mind
The more that we look
The less that we find.

Keep control, keep it white
No soul, just appetite
Left is wrong, might makes right
Keeping hope, holding tight
Sleepers wake, take up the fight.

Schoolyard bully, lowers the bar
Sets free the monsters
We already are.

The warning sign is the sign of the times.

Beautiful turned ugly
Dutiful we must be
No time to wait and see
Dedicate fully
Eradicate the bully.

Schoolyard bully, you've shown what you know
Only one for the money
And two for the show.

The warning sign is the sign of the time.
