You've got no one to defend you, you're out on your own
Still fighting on the corner, you can never go home
In this world of temptation, in this city of sin
There's nothing that can save you, but a strength from within

Because they'll do it again, they've done it before,
The Devils Brigade
Headed down a dead end road with the Devils Brigade
You're being led astray

The crew will not rest until your life's in the piss
Stop and think of you're future, the chances you'll miss
Looking back on a resume of corruption and crime
Cause you wasted your youth, taken down in your prime


Dying to belong though it's tearing you apart
A bullet to the head and a knife to the heart
Are the tools of the trade in this cold life of crime
A smart, decent kid who has now lost his mind

    Maybe no one will ever read this comment. But I think this song is so great seriously, it does say a sh*tload about life, and at the most its true, in the end your out on your own, and theres always some ass trying to bring you down with him. Sorta the same idea as Points of Authority by Linkin Park

    Dropkick Murphys are so awesome, this is one of the first songs of their's I heard. Itis so great and true, they're gonna try to bring you down, so you gotta stand up and rely onyourself if you want to make it.
