All I ever really wanted was to take the blame
I will go down in history and not down in flames
Meningitis
I will survive this
Dry sockets and a schizophrenic crisis
The time of the nine has begun
Get out of the way or you will suffer as one

This is so typical
Apocalyptical
Hanging on abysmal release
Jesus
I don't need this
Don't wanna be this
Icon in the making
My hands are fucking shaking

What if god doesn't care?
What if god doesn't care...

Remember
Surrender
The time is now
Continue
We're in you... and we will burn your cities down

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left - nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

What if god doesn't care?
What if god doesn't care?

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left - nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

Down...

We will burn your cities down

Feed the hungry - feed them shit
Feed them bones and politics
You wanna revolutionize?
Be specific and believe your eyes
Start a war in another backyard
And we'll destroy your house of cards
Give me a minute and I'll change your mind
Give me a bullet and I'll change your life

Remember
Surrender
The time is now
Continue
We're in you...
And we will burn your cities down

America is a killing name
It doesn't feel or discriminate
Life is just a killing field
It's all that's left - nothing's real
Throw away your disposable past
And fall apart like a cigarette ash
We are the fatal and vital ones of the world
And we will burn your cities down

We will burn your cities down

America... what if "god" doesn't care?

    Here's a helpful quote:
    "This song is not about my disgust of America, but more about its people. I love my country, I love the people that defend my country. I love the people that still exercise their right to disagree and voice their discontent, but there are a lot of people who are disguising politics as religion and dictating taste and turning it into policy, and that hurts me. Obviously you have to have both sides in a democracy, but it just seems like the scales have tipped so fucking far on the one side its untrue "
