bend to thrill

this wasted, tortured will

guards stand down

she will shoot to kill

talk out loud

when the troops, they rally round

love, hold on

you're hurt but you've done no wrong

and when they sound the horns

you know i'm so damn proud

these nights lend a sympathetic ear

some moments walk too soft to hear

the cold floor lends a warm embrace

bombs away

she is here to stay

stop, don't run

though your face is hung

on your knees

no shame
peak your pleas

and you can shine your medals

when the morning comes

we all know you didn't come to die

don't play to win, just say you'll try

temptation leaves a sour taste

bring the fight

she will move to strike

i'm calling out loud now,
you answer with goodbye

your throat is so closed and
it's silent and frozen

just open up wide,
in the crosshairs, don't hide, hands up high

take four steps, fall two back, learn to cry

the lions cracked the cage, paw over paw,
they're eyeing low

the hawks can sense your rage,
they know you're raw, they're circling slow

sound the call

she won't hit the wall
