[Verse 1]
(Bang!)
I can hear the shots, when the fireworks soar, and the sounds of the battle
(Drop down!)
Drop down, know I'm on top; when the arrows are drawn, the sergeant's on the saddle
This ain't the type of love that sees a lot of give and take
And I don't know how we push and pull, but I know we'll never break
Bang, bang, I can hear the shots
But I like the way you feel in the flames of the candle

Too late to leave these walls
This castle's been surrounded
Won't stay to watch it fall around us

[Chorus]
Bring the big guns out, shoot now
I'll make the drums beat harder for you
Red on the ground, bleed out
I'll rub the colors on my face to prove
I'll sing it like
Whoa-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Watch me put my war paint on, my war paint on
Whoa-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh
Watch me put my war paint on, my war paint on

[Verse 2]
I move my troops on the map
When your allies and your tribes are telling you to leave me
They won't see my plan of attack
Cause this is our fight; love is not the enemy
Everything that you do gives me some power, makes me feel alive
So take the gun, I'm your Bonnie, you can be my Clyde
I know that you feel the same
So paint it on your face and, baby, let the world see

Too late to leave these walls
This castle's been surrounded
Won't stay to watch it fall around us

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
It's not easy, but I'll draw my knife for you
It's not easy, but I'll draw my knife for you again

[Chorus]
