The sky is full of darkness
As I start to dream
It's a horrible nightmare
But it's not a scream

The devil made me do it
I can't help myself
You led me to it
Took me off yourself

Maybe i'd do it
There's no one else
I'll fess up to it
And won't blame myself

Battles won, and wars lost
The sunset is on fire
But if you don't fight
Satan will call you a liar

Are the means so conflicting?
They wipe out the common end?
Peace and brotherhood is what we're after all
So why are there so many believers dead?

Just a kid
He's seen it all
So innocent
Dreading the start of fall

Born to kill
Clutching gun in his hand
Born to be wild
Always fearing the man
