Lyrics

I wish I'd never said those words.
I wish I'd never sung this verse.
This war was never worth your life;
Your life was worth a thousand lies.

A scarlet sun hung bright over barren lands.
As we prepared to fight in these forgotten sands.
A banner we had raised, the one of peace we'd made.
We wanted to be free, free from our history.
Day after day we'd walked with wars inside our thoughts.
We tried to tell ourselves we'd made the right choice.

Why do we stand for this?
Why are we falling for this?
What is worth this kind of life?

As we fell one by one the sand beneath turned red,
With nothing but the sun mourning for our dead.
We marched throughout the day to earn our victory.
It almost seemed we'd won and then my heart stopped.

Until that day, the day you fell,
I always thought I knew of Hell.
But that was when I saw your eyes,
Your broken frame, empty inside.

Why do we stand for this?
Why are we falling for this?
What is worth this kind of life?
We're dying so we can have lives.
And fighting but we don't realize
That peace never comes at a fair price.

Your eyes see right through me,
Down to the soul that I've tried to hide.
Your eyes they consume me.
I take a breath as I start to die with you.

And as we raged in war I watched your body torn.
Beneath that blood-red sky my world became your eyes.
And as they filled with pain the blood flowed from your veins.
My hands and arms grew weak, then I heard you speak.
"Take my hand one last time.
Hold me close one last time.
This is the end of my life."

I said, "Darling please don't leave me.
Lovely I can't keep living
Without you here in my life."

Why do we stand for this?
Why are we falling for this?
What is worth this kind of life?
We're dying so that we can have lives
And trying to pretend we don't mind.
But peace never comes at a fair price.

This is not life.
It's a reason to fight.
And I, I will not be denied.
We're coming for you tonight.
