lyrics

Look to the rising sun, where these blood stained walls cannot be seen.
This free falling society will only eat us alive.
Look at the faces of those who are suffering, broken bones and shattered lives.
Just tell me, how did it come to this?

The new leaders of this lost world,
All patriot saints condemned to hell.
This murderous betrayal, committed by suited jesters.
A final prayer with a heroes welcome.
Just tell me, how did it come to this?

Just tell me, how much deceit and misery can we actually take?
Bleed on the flag,
Bleed for the sake of redemption,
Bleed for the name of humanity,
Another martyr forgotten.

Liquid black mass filling the lungs,
Choking, writhing through the veins.
The cause of death; relentless blind greed.

Just tell me why.

Scratch beneath the surface to see what really lies,
This is a true insight to the victims lowly lives.
Another name wiped from the slate.

When the trial of the already condemned comes to an end,
The world will cry, guilty.
Not a single tear will be shed
Not an ounce of remorse will be shown.
Like a grain of sand in the wind, it will be forgotten.

Crucify your leaders,
Hang them from the gallows
I despise the sun that beats down on their faces.

Look to the rising sun, where these blood stained walls cannot be seen.
This free falling society will eat us alive.
Look at the faces of those who are suffering, broken bones and shattered lives.
Just tell me, how did it come to this?

Bleed,
Another martyr forgotten.
Bleed,
In the name of redemption.
Bleed,
For the sake of humanity.
Bleed,
Another martyr forgotten,
Bleed on the flag.
