"The Criminal" as written by John Feldmann and Jason Evigan....
I just got the call and it's time to go
Where the oil falls like snow
And the bullets steal the show
To my family, my brothers, and all of my friends
Say goodbye; I am going off to war
And I am not coming home

One last kiss we better make this one count
'Cause I can't seem to deal with the fact
That I may never see you again
Send this letter to my mother who cries in her bed
She is scared; 'cause her boy's gone off to war
And he's not coming home

Move my crap as we follow the sounds
Ooooooooh
Choking the traitor is a chore
We're all criminals of war
Ooooooooh

That boy that you loved
He is gone, he is lost forever
He just killed a man
Who had promised his daughter
He'd sing to her again
La la la la......

You just sit back
I'll take lives away

Move my crap as we follow the sounds
Ooooooooh
Choking the traitor is a chore
We're all criminals of war
Ooooooooh

    General CommentThis is the right lyrics

    Hold my crown
    As we follow the sound
    Choking the trigger as a chore
    Are we criminals of war

    I just got the call and it's time to go
    Where the oil falls like snow
    And the bullets steal the show
    To my family, my brothers, and all of my friends
    Say goodbye; I am going off to war
    And I am not coming home

    I giving everthing for someone elses war
    Tell me what we're fighting for

    That boy that you loved
    He is gone, he is lost forever
    He just killed a man
    Who had promised his daughter
    He'd sing to her again
    La la la la......

    I giving everthing for someone elses war
    Tell me what we're fighting for [x2]

    Move my crown as we follow the sounds
    Ooooooooh
    Choking the trigger as a chore
    Are we criminals of war
    Ooooooooh

    I giving everthing for someone elses war
    Tell me what we're fighting for [x2]

    One last kiss we better make this one count
    'Cause I can't seem to deal with the fact
    That I may never see you again
    Send this letter to my mother
    Who cries in her bed
    She is scared;
    Cause her boy's gone off to war
    And he's not coming home
