Lyrics

 

M.i.a. - Avenged Sevenfold

Staring at the carnage

praying that the sun would never rise

Living another day in disguise

These feelings can't be right

lend me your courage to stand up and fight

Ooh tonight

 

Ooooo...

Stand up and fight

 

The fighting rages on and on,

to challenge me you must be strong

 

I walk your land but don't belong,

 

two million soldiers can't be wrong

It's not fun but I've been here before

I'm far from home and I'm fighting your war

(Not the way I pictured this, I wanted better things)

 

Some are scared others killing for fun

I shot a mother right in front of her son

(Take this from my consciousness, and please erase my dreams)

Fight for honor, fight for your life

Pray to God that our side is right

Although we won, I still may lose

Until I make it home to you

I see our mothers filled with tears

grew up so fast where did those years go?

Memories won't let you cry

unless I don't return tonight

 

So many soldiers on the other side

I take their lives so they can't take mine

(Scared to make it out alive now murder's all I know)

Nobody tells me all the reasons we're here

I have my weapons so there's nothing to fear

(Another day, another life, but nothing real to show for)

Fight for honor, fight for your life

Pray to god that our side is right

Even though we won, I still may lose

Until I make it home to you

I see our mothers filled with tears

grew up so fast where did those years go?

Memories won't let you cry

unless I don't return tonight

Staring at the carnage, praying that the sun would never rise.

Living another day in disguise.

These feelings can't be right,

lend me your courage to stand up and fight.

Watching the death toll rise wondering how I'm alive.

 

Stranger's blood on my hands, shot all I can

There are no silent nights, watching your brothers all die

To destroy all their plans with no thought of me

(No thought of me)

No thought of me

 

Ohhhhh...

 

Walk the city lonely

Memories that haunt are passing by

A murderer walks your streets tonight

Forgive me for my crimes

Don't forget that I was so young, but so scared

in the name of God and Country
