“Here we stand we will defend, we won’t pretend”
So much courage for a carnage that never seems to have an end
“Carry the flag, carry the gun, the fight has just begun”
When all that I wish for is to get to see my son
“Defend your king, defend your land, there is no other plan”
But do I have the right to murder yet another man?
“You're one with your vest, feel and honor your crest”
A symbol? A legacy? Will they mean anything/when the colours start to disappear and the scent of death’s creeping near?!

“March it up, now!”
The pain, fury, fear, end, the sorrow
Watch my world all crashing down, what if I can’t see tomorrow’s
Pain, fury, fear, end, the sorrow
Watch my world all crashing down, what if I can’t ever see tomorrow?

I'm just a soldier, a pawn in this game they make me play
Can we survive this?
Will I ever see you once again? I guess I can’t pretend
But now there’s no time to frown into this deafening sound
We will carry the crown

Beneath this
Inflamed sky’s a living hell, ashes take on every cell
Red drops forming these blue frames of doom
Rage and chaos not controlled, madness that is taking hold
A show of egos that only death shall stop

It will be the downfall of us all
But our minds, they will break the walls
The blood we shed was enough to make us crawl
But our minds will be so strong
Strong enough to break these walls

Carry me home (x3)

Will I see you on the other side?
Will I see you again?
See you again? (x2)

But the fear is on me
The fear is on me (x2)
The fear is me
