Close your eyes and shut your mouth
'Cause it's all the same and it won't change with you or without
They've got your number and that's all you are
To them it makes no difference, we're collecting scars again

One day soon we're gonna run out of room
Because we've carried our share digging graves and filling the tombs
That make up this town that keeps us locked out
We're locked down

Locked down and collecting scars again

Hey, we're seeing stars
And spilling blood, it's not yours, it's ours
We're locked down and collecting scars
While oil fields burn and bodies char

Remain silent with all that you know
As we rise to the top on the backs of those living below
Breathe easy, you're safe where you are
Go about your business and leave us collecting the scars

Produce doom and we consume
We're all enslaved filling graves and filling the tombs
That make up this town that keeps us locked out
We're locked down

Locked down and collecting scars again

Hey, we're seeing stars
And spilling blood, it's not yours, it's ours
We're locked down and collecting scars
We gotta know who the hell you think you are

Safe at home while the world is spinning out of control
From the lies you tell and the power you hold
And you steal and you kill, let the truth be told

Let's burn this town and we'll all sit around
Getting warmer by the fire with friends
Collecting scars again
What comes around goes around and I'm down
And out but coming back again
Collecting scars again

The burning embers make a sound I'll remember
Forever as I watch it descend
Collecting scars again
What comes around goes around and I'm down
And out but coming back again
Collecting scars again

    General CommentOkay, here is my opinion. The song is sang from the prospective of a military member and voices the frustration of knowing that they are dispensable. Going to war, killing people and dying for a cause that is unclear...but prolly something to do with money. I love this song.
