"War's killed off all the good men, and I'm not as smart as I think I am... I've got nothing really to defend."

"I want to burn bright but I'm fading out. Give me something to scream about! Give me life or give me death -- don't leave me holding my breath!"

Some brave youth want to raise their fists
good intentions can sometimes miss the point
title contests are often fixed
some would argue your faith makes you a martyr

"Love's for the suckers!"
"Love's for the bored!"
"Love's for the peacetime between the wars!"
"I wanna be a soldier: reset and reborn... So, find me a cause and hand me a sword, a spirit that ignites this fire inside..."
Where can you run when there's nowhere to hide?
"I wanna learn how to throw knives -- I wanna know that I've changed lives!"

Some brave youth want to raise their fists
propaganda is sometimes missed
we're in the shade of a crucifix
and fear; it inspires
protest is in high season
just watch the news...but don't listen
"it is what it is!"
god, I'm tired of this broken empire...
