[Verse 1:]
There's nothing sacred; nothing holy in this place
It's all been taken,
locked away inside
a vault that's watched by armored guards
And they will shoot to kill
We're all forsaken, left for dead inside this place
We are the faceless
numbers etched upon a stone that's built to recognize
the day the war that never ends began

[Refrain:]
Put your blood red lips on mine
Put your blood red lips on mine

[Verse 2:]
This ain't for freedom
This ain't "for amber waves of grain"
This ain't for justice
This ain't for liberty
It's someone's boot pressed down on you
'Cause that's what they call "love"
I'll kiss your crimson mouth and take away the pain
the years they've stolen can't be regained
and though I love you more than anything, I'll tell them all
take you instead of me

[repeat refrain]


[Bridge:] (x2)
Blood red
blood red
blood red
blood red
blood red lips on mine

[Final refrain:]
Put your blood red lips on mine
Put your blood red lips on mine
Put your blood red lips on mine
