Cold finger on the trigger
Behind a line drawn in the sand

Anger rise!
We fight a war with much at stake
The rights of birth that no one can take

Overflowing with anger
A soon to be awakening
Will be martyrs on to glory
Dawn finds us in this rage

As it must be
This dawn of the mad

My finger on the button
With what's so foreign in my sights

Anger rise!
We wage a war...our nature to preserve
By any means...our enemies be gone

No longer can we wait
As an enemy drains our future
As the light of a new day shines
Our anger fuels our march this dawn

Call of duty...all the minutemen rise and shine
Call of duty...only sovereigns stand the test of time

    General Comment"don't come here saying "it's the concept that makes a band heavy"" - This is just one of the reasons that everybody hates you. You act all superior, despite the fact that A) You have misquoted me and B) You didn't understand the point I was making anyway.

    My point, which obviously went right over your head, was that while 'Blasphemy' (the page, from which you attempted to quote me) doesn't sound heavy to me, in musical terms, the subject behind it is heavy, in the same way that 'Henry: Portrait of a serial Killer' is a heavier film than 'Shallow Hal' (Don't worry, I don't expect you to understand anything I am saying, but unfortunately, I can't dumb it down anymore, for you).

    If Killswitch Engage had released 'Alive or Just breathing' at the same time as 'Alters of Madness' was released, Killswitch Engage's album would have been hailed as the heavier of the two, because of the speed and the depth of the vocals.

    So go ahead and post another mindless little rant about how I take it in the ass and how Killswitch Engage are a bunch of wet fags because every time you reply, you just hammer home the point, that you are uneducated and incapable of independent thought.
