There's a movie playing in my head
Bombs falling and children crying
The sunrise the sky turns red
Load your guns tonight

There's a song playing down the hall
All alone thers an old man dying
I can't feel anything at all
Something isn't right

This is a state of emergency
I've been running from a tragedy
There's a battle raging in my head
And I don't want to be left for dead
This is a state of emergency
Don't want to be another casualty
There's a cemitery in my head
And I don't want to be left for dead

Thers a world standing in my way
State of emergency-

Father said that I best stop trying
Stand down it will be ok
You don't have to fight

There's a picture hangin on the wall
Of a memory that I'm denying
The sun sets and the angels fall
Something isn't right

This is a state of emergency
I've been running from a tragedy
There's a battle raging in my head
And I don't want to be left for dead
This is a state of emergency
I don't want to be another casualty
There's a cemitary in my head
And I don't want to be left for dead

No don't leave me here alone
I don't want to make this hell my home
I would rather die than sell my soul
I would rather lie than let you go

There's a voice screaming in my head
Telling me that I best stop crying
Stand up it will be ok
Load your guns tonight

This is a state of emergency!
