Lyrics:

Walking around this empty town where the city lights are all burnt out

Don't you know? This city is not much of a home

The empty store windows are all broken

Now there's something I can believe in I think. Some twisted ideology

I'd better get going I hear in the distance their guns sounding like parade drums.

Walking around this damn town where the city lights are all burnt out

Don't you know? This city is not much of a home

Death tolls getting higher than the flame of the fires

Banners like graffiti and propaganda flyers you know. This city is not much of a home

I'd better get goin I hear in the distance their guns sounding like parade drums.

I'd write a song to play for the nations that can't hear the screams just down the hall

But I seem to lack inspiration cause the only soul to listen is a pile of bones

I walk outside to see if times have changed

And as I walk passed the bodies I am wondering how they'd feel about much lethargy

Oh the persuasive words I have heard

Another round of poison for our great leader

Abandoned podiums, gun shells, and on third, men left by their necks as reminders

They fought the law and the law won.

Walking around this empty town where the city lights are all burnt out

Don't you know? This city is not much of a home

Their furnaces burn higher, my men are growing tired. God I just wanna go home.

These days are flying my friends are dying

My gas mask's on I'm not denying I'm scared to death and you would be too

Across the globe in the land of the cruel you wouldn't believe the things I've seen

Heads blown off and just wondering

If it will be me next in-between a muzzle pre loaded with a magazine

Its hard for me to get to sleep sometimes and I gave everything away that once was mine

And though I thank God everyday just for my life

It seems to strike the bell of irony just living to die what's it that I…

Hear outside? The heinous crimes of those who bare the swastika sign

They embody the evil that we are told of sometimes

The souls that even satin himself would insist to decline

I think you'd count it as bent that a piece metal is my closest friend

Its the only thing between me and the men that trained with brutality

They learned to have no empathy

Watching the life leave eyes of children easily

Please, the person you should be praying for isn't me.

It's cold today and has been for weeks My shoes are old, I'm feeling incomplete

I've killed men and until then I thought I'd feel a need to at least repent

At twenty, with no psych degree.

What the hell would you expect from a kid like me?
