Hide my face again
Harbor in the shadows
Feel this weight of sin
Hammer it away
Die - with the guilt
Of a thousand evil soldiers
Die - watch the scythe usher me astray

I can't go on this way
Not as I am today
The ugly sight of me is strong
Take aim a loaded gun
Pull back on all who run
A coward's truth inside the wrong

This means war (3x)

Lash your tongue of bane
Carry me to nowhere
Mental holocaust
Battle never ends
Lie - Mask the pain
Of a child who's forsaken
Lie - to my self
Praise the new regime

I left me long ago
Reasons you'll never know
No one to miss me when I'm gone
With no more words to say
No argument to stay
Another post I don't belong

This means war (5x)

No home to call my own
No finding someone new
No one to break the fall
No one to see me through
No name to carry on
No promise for today
No one to hear the call
No tattered flag to raise

Walk the razor's edge
Cut into the madness
Question all you trust
Buy into the fear
I - see the man
Ripping at my soul now
I - I know the man
I know him all too well

There's nothing here for free
Lost who I wanna be
My serpent blood can strike so cold
On any given day
I'll take it all away
Another thought I can't control

This means war (5x)
