WHAT ARE YOU GONNA DO WHEN SOMEONE WAVES A BATTLE FLAG?
UNTIE YOUR HANDS OR CRAWL INTO A BODY BAG?
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU HEAR THE CALL, YOU’RE STANDING WITH YOUR BACK AGAINST THE WALL.
I’D LIKE TO THINK I’D NEVER RAISE A FIST BUT I AIN’T NEVER BEEN PUT TO THE TEST
AND I CAN BLAME THE PATRIOT FOR BEING BLINDLY LEAD,
BUT DO WE LIVE THE VIOLENCE OR THE VIOLENCE WE’VE INHERITED

BLACKENED AND BLUE YOU WATCH ANOTHER TURN THE SCREW
GOING ON AND ON AND ON

I KNOW IT’S DUMB, WHEN I WAS SEVENTEEN I THOUGHT ABOUT MY PLACE IN HISTORY
AND WAS THERE ANYTHING WORTH FRIGHTENING FOR AND WOULD I EVER HAVE TO LIVE THROUGH WAR.
AND I WON’T BLAME THE REBEL FOR REMOVING HIS OWN CHAINS.
AND I THINK A TIME MAY COME WHEN I MAY JUST HAVE TO DO THE SAME.

    General CommentThis is the first D4 song I ever heard, deffinitely one of their best. Although, that can be said about most of their songs, so whatever.
    I think it's about being young and trying to decide on your morals and beliefs, based solely upon what you've heard or seen or read. You're thinking about what you would do in certain situations, and have no actual expirience to base it on.
