This betrayal will forever
Will this graveyard be the dis for
For these corpses
Will they be the first to fall
and dance the night away?

Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're fighting every word they sell

Something apart
Carry our guns
Take a look at what we've become
Concrete nations
Standing in the ashes of our enemies we've made

Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're fighting every word they sell
Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're fighting every word that they sell

So we dance the night away
So we dance the night away
So we dance the night away
So we dance the night away
Night away

Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're fighting every word they sell
Why do we do this to ourselves?
We're fighting every word that they sell

Every word that they sell
Every word that they sell
Every word that they sell

    This betrayal will forever
    Will this graveyard be the dis for
    For these corpses
    Will they be the first to fall
    and dance the night away?

    Okay, so there was some big betrayal (war, Iraq, someone?) and now there are large fatalities

    Why do we do this to ourselves?
    We're fighting every word they sell

    Someone is trying to help them and they are still not listening...

    Something apart
    Carry our guns
    Take a look at what we've become
    Concrete nations
    Standing in the ashes of our enemies we've made

    Now I know there is a war. The countries have hardened and blown up other countries.

    Why do we do this to ourselves?
    We're fighting every word they sell
    Why do we do this to ourselves?
    We're fighting every word that they sell

    So we dance the night away
    So we dance the night away
    So we dance the night away
    So we dance the night away
    Night away

    This is either metaphorical or something..but I think it means that they should have fun before they die. Wow that sounds dumb.

    Why do we do this to ourselves?
    We're fighting every word they sell
    Why do we do this to ourselves?
    We're fighting every word that they sell

    Every word that they sell
    Every word that they sell
    Every word that they sell

    yeah i dont know..

    General CommentAlmost the exact same song as 'Divide and Conquer' except the title name is different and it's "Concrete nations" instead of "Hungry nations"

    Big difference, eh?
