Killing Time

Written by Sweet Savage
Sound of gunfire comes through the night
Killing and hatred it's a terrible sight
Reports come in of a heavy attack
Message received, we're moving back

Preparations are made for the journey back
Hints on survival, supplies are packed
No more nights in this eternal hell
Destination is simple, we move out

        Killing time
        Your life's on the line
        Killing time
        Your turn to kill
        Killing time
        What'd ya say?
        Killing time
        The killing time

Ingenuity needed to keep us alive
No time for cowardice, kill and survive
Like a killer kid with a switchblade knife
Nasty word, he'll take your life

The silence is over the attack again
The killing and hatred, drive me insane
Reports come in of a heavy attack
Message received, we're moving back

        Killing time
        Your life's on the line
        Killing time
        Your turn to kill
        Killing time
        What'd ya say?
        Killing time
        Killing time

Sound of gunfire comes through the night
Killing and hatred it's a terrible sight
Reports come in of a heavy attack
Message received, we're moving back

Ingenuity needed to keep us alive
No time for cowardice, kill and survive
Like a killer kid with a switchblade knife
Nasty word, he'll take your life

        Killing time
        Your life's on the line
        Killing time
        Your turn to kill
        Killing time
        What'd ya say?
        Killing time
        The killing time
