Lyrics Print

We shipped our children off to war
They're dying for nothing, leaving us alone
What are they really fighting for?
Somebody somewhere said they need something that somebody else has ...

Shut your treasonous front door
It's not for nothing, the country's shoving over the enemy's throne
These heroes need your support
And your incessant whining is jeopardizing already slim chances

Stop it now I'm fighting for the both of you
And I'm just holding out for an end of this where we all will still be free

I'd give my life for you
But that doesn't mean that I agreed this war was needed too
I'm gonna follow through
Cause it's the only thing I know that I can do

Listen the rules were prescribed before
Freedom for all, not freedom for the ones who wear the flag prouder
I'm protecting the uproar
I'm also fighting for the voices who aren't getting any choices and can't scream any louder

Every one of us gets the right to be
Not just to be what someone tells us or by fitting in the classes that we're mostly used to
I'm ashamed of what I see
You're continuously threatened by somebody else getting what you think that we're all letting the quietest voices choose to give

Despite that I'm going to fight this through
And I'll never need a war to motivate me ...

I'd give my life for you
But that doesn't mean that I agreed this war was needed too
I'm gonna follow through
Cause it's the only thing I know that I can do

In the end death won't discriminate the lives that probably matter
This warrior was just the ant that got stepped on by the war

I gave my life for you
But that doesn't mean that I agreed this war was needed too
I hope you follow through
Cause it's the only thing I wanted you to do
I hope you follow through
Cause it's the only thing I wanted you to do
