Staring through the disconnect
I felt my own inconsequence
Beneath the standing armies of discontent
I felt my own inconsequence
On a waiting train that wouldn't leave
I prayed these chords my soul to keep

Tonight, they won't take me alive
Cause there's a song everyone knows
Though no one sang a single note
I can hear it

From the rumbling jungles of our self-defeat
To the sullen barracks where no one dares to sleep
On the battlefields of broken hearts
I saw this world fucking torn apart
Just waiting for nothing

Tonight, they won't take me alive
Cause there's a song everyone knows
Though no one sang a single note
I can hear it

Across the broken heartland, we're all coming out
Blasting the sound of the trodden down
And tonight we're for it
Fucking verse, bridge and chorus
No one knows who won the wars, but we know something's died
Sleepless, workless, stuck in line
Giving in for the first time
We just stopped waiting for someone to save us
They tell me we got something to lose
(Like what, to whom?)
They tell me we got something to lose
(Like what, to whom?)
And I know you hear it too
