(We don't want them, we want everything)
(We've chosen to want everything)

We don't want them, we want everything
And we've stolen in this suffering
And we told them to want everything
But use caution in what you believe
And the haunted, deny everything
Controlling in this suffering
When they're broken, and lost everything
They're so much easier to lead

Take their hope away
Take their life away
Leave them nothing left inside

When your own have died
When there's no more pride
When your soul is frozen
Is that enough?
When your heart is broken
A thousand times
With every moment,
Is that enough?

(Without warning, we take everything)

Without warning, we take everything
Undaunted in this suffering
The dark forces surround everything
Make it impossible to see

Take their hope away
Take their life away
Leave them nothing left inside.

When your own have died,
When there's no more pride
When your soul is frozen
Is that enough?
When your heart is broken
A thousand times
With every moment,
Is that enough?

Haven't they suffered enough now, Haven't we suffered enough now
Haven't they suffered enough, the damage more than they can bear
Haven't they suffered enough now, Haven't we suffered enough now
Haven't they suffered enough, the damage more than they can bear

Do they even have a reason why
Countless sons and daughters have to die
Can you even comprehend the pain?
Tell me with your heart.

Tell me when your own have died,
When there's no more pride,
When your soul is frozen
It's that enough?
When your heart is broken
A thousand times
With every moment,
Is that enough?

When your own have died(own have died)
When there's no more pride(no more pride)
When your soul is frozen
Is that enough?(Is that enough?)
When your heart is broken
A thousand times (A thousand times)
With every moment,
Is that enough?

    I think it's about how screwed the human race is taking everything and not giving back and how war is retarded

    it means that we take everything for granted until something stupid like war takes it away. then we start to realize how important it was, but we still complain.

    I believe its more then just the government against the people,
    its society as a whole. Most often people just take and take, and have no consideration for those around them, hence the lyrics, "when your heart is broken, a thousand times, is that enough". To me, it speakse of someone who is at their breaking point, who has literally given everything, and all they ask is more, and they have nothing left to give.

    And think its about your lover stealing everything emotionally and then leaving you and then it keeps on happening, you fall for the person and then they break you and its just without warning and then you just feel dead. Thats how it sounds to me.

    its about how the government has "stolen in this suffering" and they dont even warn you about it and the government is haunted by thier deeds and deny it to the press and how its time that the people beleive that theyve had enough an they need to rebel against the capitalist regiem
