Genesis - The Knife

Your rating:
Tell me that I am 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 this evil.
Now, when I give the 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,
   Have them on stakes let the blood flow.
Now, in this hate-filled world
   we must break all the chains that have bound us.
Now, the crusade has begun
   we shall make this a land fit for heroes.

Stand up and fight, for you know we are right
   We are only wanting freedom.
Some of you are going to die,
   Martyrs of course to the freedom that I shall provide.
