Rise Against Lyrics
7. Survivor Guilt
"What are you talking about? America isn't going to be destroyed" "Never? Rome was destroyed, Greece was destroyed, Persia was destroyed, Spain was destroyed. All great countries are destroyed. Why not yours? How much longer do you really think your own country will last? Forever?" Block the entrances, close the doors Seal the exits cause this is war All gave some, some gave all But for what I wanna know Carry on, don't mind me All I gave was everything And yet you ask me for more Fought your fight Bought your lie And in return I lost my life What purpose does this serve? A folded flag, a purple heart A family all but torn apart And I fought with courage to preserve Not my way of life but yours Carry on, don't mind me All I gave was everything And yet you ask me for more Fought your fight Bought your lie And in return I lost my life What purpose does this serve? The cowards preach from pedestals With words like courage and resolve But what they meant was fuck them all Cause freedom isn't free They send our daughters and our sons To deserts under burning suns A sacrificial slaughtering To fill the pockets of the weak An artificial enemy Are we so easily deceived? They carry on "You're a shameful opportunist! What you don't understand is that it's better to die on your feet than to live on your knees." "You have it backwards. It's better to live on your feet than to die on your knees. I know" Don't carry on Just walk away How many more sent to their graves In this lesson ignored? I fought your fight Bought your lie And in return I lost my life What purpose does this serve? What purpose did I serve?
