Like silent scenes in silent films, you're never sure about
The struggles of the people and the words that leave their mouths
You're just fighting to fit in, 'cause heaven has a place for men like them

They took command and stormed the lands, good men were laid to rest
Some as young as seventeen, who lied just to enlist
They were patriots […], brave as hell when faced with certain death

But I'd love to watch this city burn

And I loved you much, but times were tough and I did not have the ends
So I put your ashes in a […] dad kept under his bed
And gave your body to the wind to carry you to freedom once again

Now I fight not for heaven's name nor justice, just for you
The things they did they shouldn't have, now ten times worse I'll do to them
I'll bury them alive, end all the suffering in stride

Well I won't back down, no I never back down
I'll fight, scream and bleed, but the words won't leave my mouth
You'll kick me and you'll stone me, I'll get stabbed, I'll get burned
You'll hate me and you'll maim me, but I'll never give in

Well I'd love to watch this city burn and leave it all behind
Just hold me baby, don't back down
Now grab your gun and join the fight
You know I love to watch you fight
Like static in a dream, the words still haunt me in the night
You'll never see them bury me awake

And when you leave it all behind, the fight won't up and die
And when there's nothing left to burn, your love won't fuel the fires
And this Apocalyptic land, you'd sooner see them bury me awake
