lyrics

I've been walking like a soldier by the shine on my boots
Kicking the pricks in the crossfire
I've seen the things only blind hands could wrought
Caught in the static and the mire
But something inside me lit like a charge
And I stared into death's grinning face
I thrust my hand into flesh-eating flame
The rest just fell in place

I've been screaming like a child in unending night
But I can't hear myself o'er the din
Been praying for the angels in this no fly zone
Still hear their skeletal wings
A life for a life, a father for son
Always seemed to me an even trade
I put myself on the other side of minus
The rest just fell in place

Just give me this one last chance to explain
I never wanted this any other way
Hooded like hangmen, the gallows are slick with
Blood from a traitor's son
And you ain't the only one

Is it all you can do just to squeeze your eyes shut
As I stand here right in front of you
You can cover your ears for forever if you wanted
But it don’t mean a thing, what we do
Because it's all I can do just to keep from my dreams
The sorrow I cannot replace
The things that we leave to chance and to fate
The rest just fall in place

Just give me this one last chance to explain
I never wanted this any other way
Hooded like hangmen, the gallows are slick with
Blood from a traitor's son
And you ain't the only one

Meet me where the poppies fall like snow
Sky is falling down upon our heads
Serpentine you slip away from me
Pull the trigger put me in my place
