The sins of deliverance
The eyes of the patriot
Fixed through the scope
The unknowing tyrant walks
To the rope

It's when murder is justice that martyrs are made
A one-gun salute for the new independence day
They'll hallow your name
They'll hallow your name for your sacrifice
The sins of deliverance

"So let the wicked perish in the presence of God"
For your sacrifice

The sins of the father atoned by the son
Confessions of commitment broken
A nail driven for every one

It's when murder is justice that martyrs are made
A one-gun salute for the new independence day
They'll hallow your name
They'll hallow your name for your sacrifice

You are the cause, I am the effect
Created in hatred, a noose for your neck

The eyes of the patriot
Fixed through the scope
The unknowing tyrant walks
To the rope
They'll hallow your name (for your sacrifice) X2

    So let the wicked perish in the presence of god...

    As smoke is driven away - to wit, by the wind. Smoke - vapor - easily disturbed and moved by the slightest breath of air - represents an object of no stability, or having no power of resistance, and would thus represent the real weakness of the most mighty armies of men as opposed to god.

    So drive them away - with the same ease with which smoke is driven by the slightest breeze, so do the enemies of god disappear before his power. Compare the notes at psalm 1:4.

    As wax melteth before the fire - compare psalm 22:14. The meaning here is plain. As wax is melted down by fire - losing all its hardness, its firmness, its power of resistance, so must the most mighty armies melt away before god.

    So let the wicked perish at the presence of god - that is, those who rise up against him; his enemies. It will be as easy for god to destroy wicked men as it is for fire to melt down wax.
