[These past few hours have been the longest, darkest of my life,
How does one weigh human life?
One million civilians against eighty-one hostages,
American boys have paid for that neglect, blood, is equally real and equally tragic,
We are at war with terror,
Fighting means casualties,
This is the worst call I've ever had to make,
Air strike approved.]

[We are at war with terror.]

Come in let me open my heart to you,
Come here, let me tend to your wounds.

Rest your head against the cave that's your freedom,
Make the hallowed streets of my home into your tomb.

Come in!
[We are at war with terror.]
Come in!
[Air strike approved.]

Set in motion your plan for my destruction,
Use my hospitality to bleed me dry,
Build your schools so the future we indoctrinate,
There won’t be any of it to watch me die,
To watch me die
Die
To watch me die

[We are at war with terror.]

It's not going to work that way,
It's not going to work that way,
It's not going to work that way, and all this time for things I've wished for far too long,
Now it’s my turn to come into your home and to put you back inside again,
Where you belong,
Where you belong!

[We are at war with terror.]

Come in!
Come in!
Come in!
Come in!

Come in, I'll relinquish my hate for you,
Come in, let me tend to your heart too,
Crush your head, catch the breath of a nation,
Make the deserts of your home into your tombs.

[These past few hours have been the longest, darkest of my life,
How does one weigh human life?
One million civilians against eighty-one hostages,
American boys have paid for that neglect, blood, is equally real and equally tragic,
We are at war with terror,
Fighting means casualties,
This is the worst call I've ever had to make,
Air strike approved.]

[We are at war with terror.]

It's not going to work that way,
And in the darkness we can make our stands,
You think your little lies are terror to destroy what we always want,
With you I'll render you dead until your skin is dissolved,
Until your thoughts are dissolved,
Your skin and thoughts are dissolved!

[We are at war with terror.]

Come in.
Come in.
Come in.
