"We Don't Lose The War, We Just Make It Silent"

Boom, boom
Die, die
Your the target so better hide fast
Your the star
So run faster
We want you now
Better be quiet
But put your weapon on your side
I promise i'll make it very quick
Now relax girl
Don't move
The war has just begun

Place weapons on the side
Close for a fist
Now use that power for more blood
No more tomorrow 
Make it today
Because today
Will be yesterday
So yesterday you were the hero

Now we have gone
A nice brutal kill 
History have not bound us
Silent war
No sound
No bullets
No blaze
We still stand
Help us all
No chance of purity
Help yourself
No war
Because you don't hear it?
Oh brother your mistaken again.
