Our fears ring true
We're on a march towards the end
Cover my eyes
But I still hear the deafening drums of war
Onward every twisted spoke

Let's make history
Let's make history stop
When there's nothing left
We'll be fed our father's dreams

And I find every time I face this skyline
I picture it in ruins
It's not going to stop

Our fears ring true
We are numbered with the dead
When I finally come apart
Every piece will melt holes into the streets
Onward every twisted spoke

Let's make history
Let's make history stop
When there's nothing left
We'll be fed our father's dreams

We can't let it happen like this
Burn it down
Burn it to the fucking ground
It's not going to stop

    General CommentI think he is trying to put his fears aside and fight and change the world for the better. To do what he believes in without fear. He wants to burn his cowardly life to the ground and be strong in his speech and actions.

    General CommentTo me this song is like deeply expressing the sorrow in all the heinous acts done by man over the course of years.Wars fought on baseless lines and deaths amount.But this cant go on someone has to put an end to all this madness.Karl in a way is puttin out just that.
