We’re just the braces amidst
These selfish trials and fits
Not so scared or dumb is the rest
Our unravelling has just
Enough of it here to be
Drown propped up and watching
You stare at us pull you down

You read the news
You take the vows
You blame the costs
We play the chords
Now the only course
That traces an end
To the violence
Has left us without any
Chance to stand our ground

Stand up and
March – Get back in line and
Fight – The time to start is
Now – Don’t let yourself play the fool
There’s no way out

Placatingly wound we search
Without purpose the game ends
Promise me today
So tomorrow’s a new surprise
All these sores lingering
Shutdown and loving it
The greedy hands will lie
But we stand ready to strike

Yours’ is the blood
Theirs’ the first
The speed the greed
The machines and the paper dolls
We didn’t want this
We didn’t need this
We couldn’t see it coming
But we’re to blame for it

Stand up and
March – Get back in line and
Fight – The time to start is
Now – Don’t let yourself play the fool
There’s no way out

Watch us coming
While you drop away
Bow your fucking heads
And pray for us
‘Cause it’s my time
And it’s our side
You can’t stop us any longer

Bow your head
Pray for us
Bow your head
Pray for us
It’s our time
It’s our side
Bow your head
Prey for us

March – Get back in line and
Fight – The time to start is
Now – Don’t let yourself play the fool
There’s no way out

    General CommentThis song is just astonishing. There is so much meaning behind it. I agree with the others, this song is absolutly great.
    I love the guitar in this song, it whines so beautifuly both the bass and the acoustic. Then with the words, there couldnt be a better mix for this song.
    Gotta love AHC

    Lyric CorrectionI think

    "Yours is the blood
    Theirs the first"

    is

    "Yours is the blood
    Theirs is the thirst"

    But I'm not totally sure about that.
