Part I. Four Score…
This is a war we can’t win.
After ten thousand years, it’s still us against them,
and my heroes have always died at the end.
So who’s going to account for these sins?

And I don’t know who here is my friend.
Well, I’m certain that I’ve seen uglier men,
But Christ, fuck me if I can remember when.
Will I never be lonely again?

Olden times are returning once more,
As six dark-winged devils line up at my door.
Each one is more evil than that which came before.
Seven angels find me spread across the floor.

You’d like everyone to believe you’re a star.
And I’ll admit that it’s worked out pretty well so far.
But when they see the kind of person that you really are
then you won’t be laughing so hard.

Part II. …And Seven
I’m depraved and disgusting, I spew like a fountain,
I’ve been debased, defaced, disgraced and destroyed,
“Most of all, disappointed,” I say atop this mountain
As I urinate into the void.

Fuck, I’m frustrated, freaking out something fierce
Would you help me? I’m hungry, I suffer and I starve
And I struggle and stammer ’til I’m up to my ears
In miserable quote-unquote art.

About how how ever since our forefather came on this land
We’ve been coddling those we should be running through.
Please don’t wait around for them to come and shake hands,
They’re not gonna be waiting for you.

Because these humans treat humans like humans treat hogs,
They get used up, carved up, and fried in a pan.
But I wasn’t born to die like a dog, I was born to die just like a man.
I was born to die just like a man!

It’s still us against them, and they’re winning.

    Lyric CorrectionIn the second part of the song, I believe the correct lyric is, "In miserable quote unquote 'art.'"

    General CommentAnybody know if the consistent use of the "born to die" is in response to Springsteen or just something they came up with themselves? It's used in the first song on the album (A More Perfect Union) as well. I'm guessing it's half and half.

    Either way great, great song.

    General Comment"This is a war we can't win
    After 10,000 years, it's still us against them
    And my heroes have always died at the end
    So who's going to account for these sins?

    Cause these humans treat humans like humans treat hogs
    They get used up, coughed up, and fried in a pan
    But I wasn't born to die like a dog,
    I was born to die just like a man
    its still us against them"


    i feel like its about the fight against good and evil. He's frustrated with how often good people get screwed over
