lyrics

We were there and we were young
your eyes fixed on sadness
In a second all we knew
turned violently into
fire cracking up the walls
the night sounds are dying
creeping out and walking back
oh what a wonderful burn

How low

Chorus:
Can you see her?
She’s crying in the night
falling crushed and helpless
We are on fire
calling out
coming armed and dangerous
claiming our land back

How bad

Teach them hard and teach them well
the words can’t be spoken
I was older way back then
when you tried to push him
out the window into the road
all bloodied and battered
a sickness that eats men alive
leaving nothing behind
in this world
there’s someone
with you all the time

To see you crying in the night
falling crushed and helpless
We are on fire
calling out
coming armed and dangerous
claiming our land back

See her, she’s trying
