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)

    Hide my face again.
    Hover in the shadows.
    Feel this weight of sin.
    Hammering away
    Die with the guilt.
    Of a thousand evil soldiers.
    Die! watch the sight or show me astray (?)

    I can't go on this way.
    Not as I am today.
    The ugly side of me is strong.
    They gain my lonely gun.
    Hold back on our own.
    The coward's truth inside the wrong.

    This means war.
    This means war.
    This means war.

    Lash your tongue of pain.
    Carry me to nowhere.
    Mental holocaust
    Battle never ends.
    Light pass the pain.
    Of a child truthful seeking.
    Lie to myself.
    Brace the new regime.

    I left me long ago.
    Reasons you'll never know.
    No one to miss me when I'm gone.
    With all the words to say.
    No longer meant to stay.
    Another post I don't belong.

    This means war.
    This means war.
    This means war.
    This means war.

    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 time to plan the race (?)

    Walk the razor's edge.
    Cutting through the madness.
    Question all you trust.
    Buy into the fear.
    I see the man.
    Weeping at my soul now.
    I, I know the man.
    I know him all too well.

    There's nothing here for free.
    Lost who Ii want to be.
    My stupid blood can strike so cold.
    On any given day.
    I'll take it all away.
    Another thought I cant control.

    This means war.
    This means war.
    This means war.
    This means war.
    This means war.

    Hover in the shadows = Harbor in the shadows*.
    Hammer it away = Hammering away*.
    The only sight of me is strong = The ugly side of me is strong*.
    Taking a lonely gun = Take aim a loaded gun*.
    Light mash the pain of a child truth forsaken = Lie! Mask the pain of a child who's forsaken*.
    No time to flag the raids = No tattered flag to raise*.
    On any giving day = On any given day*.

    Not to mention you missed a "This means war" in the second chorus. Fix all this and you've got the correct lyrics.
