They came to us one day
They said that we should pray,
And if we did our sins would go away.
They lied to get ahead, lay in our daughter’s beds.
Until we discovered their deception

Raise your swords!
We won't be ignored!
This is War!
Who do you fight for?

Appease them if you will, it will not help your case.
They will ignore you still,
They don't care for your fate!
It's all a game to them, the blood it isn't theirs.
They'll lead you to your end.
This is goodbye my friend!

Indifferent to the pain
We're at the edge again,
This isn't where we want to be my friend
The possibilities and questions we don't see.
Where are all the answers to set us free?
The strings that we've attached
Rip the skin from our back
We did this to ourselves what fools we are!
The puppet masters laugh, we hurt on their behalf.
The killing fields are covered in our blood.

This is War!
Who do you fight for?

Deny it all you want, this is a fight for life.
The sage and the savant take sides,
But no one's right.
The battle lines are drawn,
The pieces on the board.
Are we all just their pawns?
Will their crimes be ignored?

Appease them if you can,
It will not help your fate
They will not take a stand,
They destroy not create
It's all a game to them,
The blood it's ours not theirs
They'll kill us all my friend!
They'll lead us to our end
Deny it all you want, we're in a fight for life
The sage and the savant hide demons in the light
The battle lines are drawn,
We're pieces on their board
We all are just their pawns,
Their crimes can't be ignored!
