The Knife

The Knife

Genesis

Tell me my life is about to begin
Tell me that I'm a hero
Promise me all of your violent dreams
Light up your body with anger

Now, in this ugly world
It is time to destroy all this evil
Now, when I give a word
Are you ready to fight for your freedom ?

NOW
Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies, that have spread like disease through our minds
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness to all who our love now deserve

Some of you are going to die
Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide

I'll give you the names of those you must kill
All must die with their children
Carry their heads to the palace of old
Hang them, hang them, let the blood flow

Now, in this ugly world
Breaking the chains around us
Now, the crusade has begun
Give us a land fit for heroes

NOW
Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
We must strike at the lies, that have spread like disease through our minds
Soon we'll have power, every soldier will rest
And we'll spread out our kindness to all who our love now deserve

We are only wanting freedom ?
